My father spends almost 300 days a year exploring the US. I'm quite envious really. These pictures are from day trip my brother, sister and I took with my Dad into the Cerbat Mountains on the Chloride Mines Trail.
The 'Forgotten Lands' is an area in central Ontario Canada that is bordered by Haliburton, Peterborough and Minden. This was once land that was given to early settlers to Canada. Upon arriving from Europe the settlers painfully discovered their promised rich farm land was actually dense trees and granite from the Canadian Shield. Virtually unfarmable the area was abandoned and left for logging. The remains of early homesteads can still be found in lonely rocky areas here.
In 2014 I flew down to visit my father in Chloride Arizona. I quickly rented a Jeep and decided to pack in as much as I could in the few days I had. I managed to see parts of Mojave National Preserve, Joshua Tree Highway, Route 66, Death Valley, Christmas Tree Pass and a bit of the Chloride Mines trail.
