Photographer's Note

The Lost Burro mine in Death Valley is pretty much as it was left when the last miner left. This shot attracted me because of the sign painted on the old rusty cast iron stove. It reads "Thieves Will Be Prosecuted." Though the mining equipment is gone, the site is littered with the remains of long occupation. The miners shack still has a bed frame and canned goods that appear to be from the 50's or 60's. You might call this a museum in situ
