Scotty's Castle, Death Valley Nat'l Park, California.

Picture of Scotty's Castle in Death Valley Nat'l Park. On that particular day, I was totally alone visiting this huge building. It became kind of scary as you finally imagine you are hearing or seeing ghosts in dark corners. Scotty spent his life building this mansion for millionaire William Wrigley (chocolate and chewing gum magnate). There is even a huge 1930's car in the living room.

Nice. Was this shot recently or before all the mud damage that happened almost 3 years ago?

The last time I was there, I went on the structural tour. I'd like to see the architectural tour the next time around.

This was in 2013. The Castle has been closed for a number of years as is the road going north towards Ubehebe Crater. This year (2019), it was still inaccessible to the public.
