Spectacular scenary. Last few miles made my wife a little nervous, in our Jeep Grand Cherokee, but no issues. Not too much to see other than the scenary and a few rock walls, but we had a superb picnic at the top of the hill....More

It took us two trips to find Delamar and when they say it is only accessible by 4 wheel drive, THEY MEAN IT. The best way to find Delamar is to have a good GPS. Come from the north and look for the sign, which...More

We visited this ghost town, after reading about it, in September 2004 .. Gold was discovered here in 1889.. As I recall, 3000 people lived here by 1897. Delamar had the distinction, that the gold was found in quartzite, mining and working the ore resulted...More
