Tiny House in a Landscape

mining shack

I came across this tiny mining shack this spring, while hiking for tortoise surveys in the Mojave desert. Well actually, we saw it from a distance during our assigned 7-mile hike, and just had to hike a few extra miles at the end of the day to get a better look! We are normally out in the back country and rarely come across signs of civilization. I was afraid of what we might find, but my partner was sure we’d find treasure. We did find an old (unopened!) Heineken, and flushed a bird which gave my partner a good scare. A hike to remember.

This little shacks might be the generator shed for an airways route beacon of the 1930’s. Where is this located?
