Right now we are on our way to a ghost-town in Voona not too far from our motel to catch it in the sunrise before we go back for breakfast.
And yay, I feel alittle better! I don't think my nose is that stuffy anymore. I pretty much, I think, "just" have a half-nasty cough at times. I'm also using Listerine which is an effective mouthwash that also kills germs but man its strong! I pretty much get wet eyes every time and it feels like acid when u spit.
We just had breakfast at the motel which had a nice breakfast buffe. The lady working there was really nice and made us omelets based on veggies and other accessories of our choice
Now we are on our way towards three ghost-towns and then maybe tomorrow we will reach Antilope canyon which seems to be something really extraordinary! :)
So we just was at this tiny town with a few deserted houses. At first it didn't seem too interesting but there was some sort of wooden tower we checked out. It seemed to have an open antiques store just by it an inside was an old man running a museeum there. We decided to check it out as it was just a dollar.
The museum consisted of 15th something rooms that were litterally PACKED with an endless amount of old and dirty bottles and glasses, signs, tools, horns, paintings, stuffed animals etc. etc. etc... lol! There were also a stuffed model of a two-headed calf, know tv.
The tower were several stories high and the last two stories you had to climb by ladder to get to othe top.
When we got back down the funny and excentric old man wanted to show us item after item and handed us item after item from a glass cabinett to have us guess what it was.
I don't think we got any item right but he told us
on every item and it was everything from tools to cut off bull's balls with and old rusty spoons to scope ice cream with to dinosaour poo and a toothpick made of a raccon's penis
So we drove on for a couple of hours, I was feeling very drained and tired for that part of the drive and slept alot during it. Then we left the main road for a possible ghost town up the hill. After driveing quite a while on a forrest dirtroad, about 14 miles / 2,25 mil, we reached a treatment plant. Possibly for natural gas as we had seen alot of signs for natural gas on the way up. Well, just past the treatment plant we parked the car by the roadside because there was alot of deserted wooden cottages just nearby, the "ghost town" we looked for.
(The weather up there was quite chilly. Only 53 deg. F / 11,6 grad. C and we had about 103 deg. F / 39 grad. C when we left our motel in the morning.)
I got some really beutiful pictures with a wooden house in the foreground and a small creek surrounded by green bushes and the mountain in the background. :)
We are currently haveing dinner in the small town of Southfork were we also found a motel for the night so we are soon going there to rest and sleep after a long day in the car.
