From Feb. 15 through Feb. 17, Boy Scouts and adult advisors from Troop 319 went on a backpacking trip to the ghost town of Panamint City, near Death Valley, with a copy of their favorite newspaper, the CV Weekly. Panamint City was centered around mining silver although much of the town was destroyed in a flash flood.
Today remnants of its buildings and mining equipment remain; most notable is the town’s brick smokestack (pictured in background of photo) which still stands at an impressive height over the rest of the town.
Pictured from left are Brett Tyler, Andrew Green, Rob Tyler, Aidan Foote, Logan Foote, Zachary Alvarado, Tim Alvarado, Cole O’Bryan, Michael O’Bryan and Ryan Green.
CV Weekly loves to travel! Take us along on your next trip and send us a photo. You may find yourselves on the pages of the community’s favorite newspaper.
