Open the door, Hornitos.

Hornitos, CA. This was such a cool find. There is just not a lot in this area, but what is left makes you see and hear the ghosts of the past. I shot this with my Fuji X-E1, and once again Fuji proves they are more than capable of capturing and producing wonderful colors. Happy Thanksgiving!

There is an incredibly small and forgotten cemetery (except for the locals who know about it) in the Hornitos/Mariposa area. The area is rich in gold mining history and many of the graves, or what’s left of them, resemble the picture above. I was told at one time a church stood on these grounds but sadly burned down during a restoration effort. Taken with my Fuji X-E1.
