Fascinating landscape, so well registered - Hello from Athens
The property is largely abandoned; but, oddly, the interior of the house looks to have been recently restored. A local rancher, Mic Casey, recently bought the place, and the grounds have been used for storing equipment and hay and temporarily holding livestock. In June there was a sad-looking horse grazing in the partially irrigated meadow on the west side of the property. The guy who lived on the property last year is apparently "not around" anymore. Most of this is what I hear from the locals...
Hey there Justin; Thanks...! I was Stationed at NAS Fallon in the 60's and we flew Sail Planes from the Salt Flats here. But I forgot where this Pic was taken from.... Thanks a bunch...! Mitch
David; you have some Great Shots. I've been by there on 395 many times but never had the opportunity to hike in and take photos. I'm an Aerial Photographer and have seen many Awesome sites though. I was stationed in the Navy at Fallon (East of Reno) in the 60's and grew up in S-Cal.

Hi Ken: I'm Mitch. I was Stationed in the Navy at Fallon back in the 60's for 3-1/2 yrs and loved it very much. Love your work and photos too. The area is awesome with geological sites. (Everywhere I Look, it's just facinating) The Bat Caves East of the base at Fallon, I posted photos of the Formations that look like Sea Correl and Lave plugs.(at Grimes Point) Also I have a bunch of photos posted at Eastgate (taken thru the yrs)
and in the Eastgate Range with that Old Gold Mine Complex, East of Fallon 56 miles on Hwy 50, before it was all torn down. Also I posted some photos of the old Rawhide Gold Mine Site (1966 photos)before it was all hauled away.
Thanks for posting Great photos. I live outside of San Antonio Tx now. (Aeroviews@aol.com) is my E-mail address.
