Calico Ghost Town

Quick video of an old ghost mining town in the Mojave desert. It is Calico in the Calico Mountains, San Bernardino County, California.

Great place to visit, but avoid during the summer heat.

Special events are held throughout the year including a Spring Festival in May, Calico Days in early October, and a Ghost Town haunt in late October.

Calico was the location for the final scenes of the film The Prowler (1951) starring Van Heflin and Evelyn Keyes.
