Wall Street Mill

There is a cool place called the Wall Street Stamp Mill at Joshua Tree National Park. Not that many visitors hike the ~1 mile trail to get to a fascinating place where they used to process gold ore from the mines around the area. The story goes that in 1928, Oran Booth and Earle McInnes filed a claim at the well site, built a cabin, and named the site “Wall Street.” They left Wall Street due to other opportunities and on July 1, 1930, William Keys filed a milling claim on the site. There are many abandoned cars that are rusting away on the Joshua tree/rock landscape. It is a very cool place for taking photographs. Here are a few captures that day. For the complete set of photos taken that day, view my g+ album.
