In search of...ghost towns

The Misc. Vol. 03 is in the mail, and in it a whole section on ghost towns of Texas and New Mexico. I checked out copious quantities of travel guides and photo books to track down the empty old towns along Route 66 and elsewhere in preparation for my trip west and found in my travels that there are ghost towns and ghostly towns, the latter inhabited yet somehow still desolate.

Below are some of my favorite photos, outtakes that wouldn't comfortably fit on the magazine pages. The towns featured are Childress, Glenrio and Chillicothe, Texas and Endee, New Mexico.
