Mom and Candy on Rice Road, Midland, CA, 1955 spacer

We were on our way somewhere north of town and had stopped along the road for pictures. This is a photo of my Mom and I. The camera is facing toward Brown's Gold Mine and Vidal Junction. Rice Road is just below.

A couple people wandered into the desert in search of gold and were never heard of again. The desert has the power to swallow you with it's secrets. A few mistakes and you were lost forever.
