hanging on at black's ranch

The old cottonwood trees are barely hanging on with the diminishing groundwater near Harper Lake. Most are dead and the adobe ranch building is gone.

 

C.S. Black built an adobe cabin near here, established a cattle ranch, and began operating a stagecoach stop. Black's Ranch, also called Grant's Station, became a prominent landmark in the Mojave Desert.

 

was out here geocaching when i shot this.
