Ophir, My Love

You leave me breathless.

Last Friday, Chris and I spent a gorgeous day riding around on our motorcycle. I asked if we could take a ride to Ophir and Chris happily obliged. It was a mining town established back in the late 1800's by the U.S. Army. Today, it is living ghost town with rusty, old remnants of its past lying around. The town is nestled in a beautiful, but jagged canyon out of the way and miles from anywhere.

Railroad tracks and mining carts can still be found on the hillsides.

Dirt roads under a lush canopy......makes me weak in the knees.
