Travel Tips for Yermo

Great Explorations

by lmkluque

We felt like map makers when we discovered Mule Canyon Road. An unmarked, unpaved path leading through two mountanins. (Okay, they were hills, but to ten and eleven year old boys, the hills looked like mountains.) Our fondest memory has to be the sense of excitment of exploring the uncharted areas, finding an abandoned mine and deciding whether or not the ugly lizard could join us in the car.

Calico Ghost Town

by lmkluque

Calico Ghost Town is located ten miles northeast of Barstow, California. It is historically a silver mining town from the 1880's to the 1890's. In the early 1890's borax was discovered--ever heard of the The U.S. Borax Co. and its 20-mule team? They stopped at Calico regularly. The borax mines were active until 1910 when a larger deposit of borax was found closer to Los Angles.

Walter Knott bought town of Calico in 1951, restored it and later donated it to the County of San Bernardino (1967) and now it is a county regional park maintained to perserve a part of the history of the area.

Ancient Campfire Ring

by lmkluque

In one of the major pits at the Early Man Site a fire ring was found more than fifteen feet below the earth's surface. The docent explained how they came to discover the ring and how they could tell that it was a fire ring.

It's interesting to read about such a find, but quite intriguing to see it for one's self. If you are at all curious about archeology, a tour of this active dig will delight you.

Remember, during or even after the tour the docent will answer any question you ask.

NATIVE AMERICAN TOOL FACTORY

by lmkluque

This is a photo of one of the docents at the Early Man Site showing us how Native Americans made tools and weapons. It was not part of the tour.

My Slovakian cousin had come for a visit and on the way to Las Vegas we stopped at the Early Man Site. My cousin had many unanswered questions by the end of the tour and I suggested we ask the docent these questions.

Docents are people who volunteer to be trained, for at least six months, to give quality tours and are experts on their subject. It is a fact that most docent's love their work, readily share their knowledge and are more than happy to come upon a curious mind. At the Early Man Site, the "docent" will most likely be a trained Archeologist.

By asking our questions, we were lucky enough to have a few personal demonstrations as well as gaining much more info than that covered on the tour.
