Default Google Earth

Living out west in this dry arid climate has advantages, old roads donít wash away! Iím researching different locations to go. I find an old map that is very accurate on its details. The map shows an old homestead from 1860ís. I figure out the general area of the map and check on google earth. Sure enough I can make out the old road that is shaped exactly as the map. The map shows a house slightly left of the divided road and I can make out a rectangular foundation. Iím hoping this is a virgin find. Scheduled for next Saturday!

Good luck. I love those old desert homesteads. Usually lots of trash but lots of treasure as well.
