Nice list. I am slowly googling them to get an idea of what remains. Would you be interested in going to the better ones?

I checked every location on Google Earth. Most of them are in a farmer's field. With others, the legal description does not jive with Google Earth, and the town (or shacks) can be up to a mile away. But then, maybe somebody moved them.
There are a few interesting prospects to check out. But I think we'll wait until the snow stops! lol

Cam, we need some more input here. Where's the rest of the abandoned shack lovers. We need for this snow to disappear so we can get some cool photos and make everyone drool!

Cam :

You mentioned the coordinates of the house in our chat on saturday. Would you mind sending these coordinates.

I would love to photograph some ghost towns, but as someone else pointed out, it's a matter of finding the ones that actually have some real remnants, instead of just a few chunks of concrete in a field. I think most are in southern Alberta.

We just got back from Arizona with lots of old building photos. There are still a lot of picturesque old buildings around. If our weather were more reliable, we could go searching. I spent years working for pipelines, which entails driving mainly down back roads. So I know a few good spots. Hope theyare still there after 10 years.

Popular Photography May 2013 Page 42 has an article called Ghost Story, including Ghost Town Tips. Unfortunately, the ghost towns in the article are in California
