Most of this valley is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management land - no one wants it, nor is anyone ever likely to want it - The results of a hundred and twenty years of mining too visable, and there is almost no water. Many ghost towns look like they haven't aged much - even iron doesn't rust much here.
