Nice capture Pat!

Thanks! The weirdest thing about this place, is that a former home of Wyatt Earp is here. It is fenced in and kept up.

How cool! Can you get in to see Wyatt Earp's home? Where is Vidal?

Pat Tillett said...

Thanks Klara!

@ Kathy - Vidal is way out in the boonies! About 100 miles east of Twentynine Palms Ca, 25 miles north of Blythe, 13 miles west of Parker Az, and 60 miles south of Needles Ca. It's about 6 miles south of Vidal Junction where the 62 and 95 meet. The coordinates are 34.119670 --114.510104
Apparently, there are no tours given of the Earp place, but it's in really good shape, and kept that way. It's still an interesting place to visit if in the area. There are some ruins on both sides of the RR tracks. I'll do a post on the town on my regular blog soon.
