Videos From Abandoned Desert Sites

These videos are from Julie and I's recent road trek. I will put up the Trailer park before from 2 years ago and how it is now too - you will be surprised!

This abandoned motel below was featured in our book Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition)"

Here is the trailer park 2 years ago (below) -

Here is the park now -below- (also featured in our Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition)  -

The next location was the burned out house. Julie and I used the stables in this video for a location in our Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition) book also.

(MUSIC in all these videos is Kings of Leon's "Only By the Night" album)

Just for shits and giggles--here is video of typical roadside dust devils in Arizona


  1. The videos turned out great. I like the music you picked for each one. It is amazing how much the trailer park has changed. It looks more like a disaster area and that a tornado went through and destroyed all the trailers, swing set and threw all the stuff all over the desert floor.

  2. I want to start doing little mini docs by recording haunted locations, etc on my Nikon and then dubbing in a music and voice overs. I need to get a decent little movie maker program.

  3. I have to admit that when I'm filming in the bright desert, I cannot tell if the damn thing is filming or not, so sometimes I end up filming when I mean to have the camera off. I use Flipcam and I adore it because the software is on it. It has a jack. You just plug it in and it brings up the program. You drag scenes, add music, and it's on Youtube in a few minutes' time.
