Entlang / Along Highway 395

You can click the locations under index or better just to go page by page

Ich möchte einige Orte entlang Highway 395 vorstellen, angefangen mit Süden auf Höhe Adelanto bis zur Geisterstadt Bodie (Höhe Willow Springs).
Hwy 395 geht nördlich ab von Freeway 14/178. Von ca. Ridgecrest bis Höe Mammoth Lakes benötigt man ca. 3 Auto-Stunden. Speed Limit ist meist 65 mph. Von Los Angeles bis Mammoth Lakes braucht man zwischen 5 und 6 Stunden bei geringem Verkehrsaufkommen.
Klicke unten auf Index oder Links in der Menü-Leiste.

I would like to show you the places I have visited along 395. I hope to find time to drive along 395 again in the near future.
It starts with the South at Adelanto up to the North to Bodie Ghosttown (on the level of Willow Springs). Highway 395 goes from Freeway 14/178  in the North. You need like 3 hours from Ridgecrest to Mammoth Lakes. Speed limit is mostly 65 mph. And from Los Angeles to Mammoth Lakes it is about 5 to 6 hours drive without heavy traffic.

This interesting fun spot was found by us with just driving on CA 395. There was no person present so we just wandered around and took pics.
This location comes just after Astro Burger heading North.

Gold wurde 1895 auf dem Hang des Rand Mountain entdeckt. Von dieser Entdeckung sprang die Stadt Randsburg fast über Nacht auf. Bis 1899 hatte die Stadt über 3500 Einwohner. Randsburg rühmte sich einer 100-Satelliten-Mühle und konservative Schätzungen gehen davon aus, dass 60.000.000 US-Dollar in Gold während der Boom-Jahre der Stadt aus den Minen in der Gegend geholt wurden. Von 1895 bis etwa 1933 produzierte die gelbe Aster-Mine Gold im Wert von fast 25.000.000 US-Dollar zu den alten Goldpreisen von etwa 20 US-Dollar pro Unze. Das Gefängnis und der Salon des Weißen Hauses beherbergten viele Bergarbeiter, Cowboys, Farmer, Indianer und Clamper während des Höhepunkts der Bergbauzeit.
Gold was discovered on the slope of Rand Mountain in 1895. From this discovery, the town of Randsburg sprang up almost overnight. By 1899, the town had over 3500 residents. Randsburg boasted a 100-satamp Mill and conservative estimates are that US$ 60.000.000 in Gold was taken out of the mines in the area during the town’s boom years. From 1895 till about 1933, the yellow aster mine produced almost US$ 25.000.000 worth of gold at the old gold prices of about US$ 20.00 per ounce. The jail and white house saloon were host to many a miner, cowboay, farmer, indian and clamper during the peak of the mining period.
