We have quite a few here in Utah in the West Desert. My Dad and I like to head out and explore them as often as we can. Most have been hit pretty hard over the years, but every now and then we find something neat. Some still have buildings, others we have only been able to find by comparing skylines to old pictures.....

One of my favorites out here is Jacob City.

But above all I enjoy the history and the tranquility. Makes you think.

Most Ghost towns out here are considered Historical sites, a definite No to metal detecting, but there are hundreds of old mining camps scattered in very remote areas. I found a site last fall, been back 2x (a 2 hour drive 1 way). So far only trash. It took awhile to realize what I was looking at was a foundation. This wall is at least 100 feet long, several smaller foundations in the area. It shows up well in Google Earth, but when you are next to it, it is only a stone wall.
