Blue Thistles

Left in the weeds, over the mountain from all the lights, where the fog breaks.  White and blue flashlight.  Extra bonus points if you can name the make and model.

Advertising Insulation

Remote Mojave Desert mountain top miner’s cabin with it’s interior walls insulated with cardboard, packaging and newspapers . . . dating back to the 1920s.  Vandalized, but still a truly remarkable site.  All lit by flashlight at night, in a totally dark room.

The Halloran Shine
