Wordless Wednesday

WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.

For all the rule breakers, of which I am one, please feel free to add all the words you want.

Scotty’s Castle

Scotty’s Castle (also known as Death Valley Ranch) is a two-story Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival style villa located in the Grapevine Mountains of northern Death Valley in Death Valley National Park, California, US. Scotty’s Castle is named for gold prospector Walter E. Scott, although Scott never owned it, nor is it an actual castle.

The ranch is located about 45 miles (72 km) north of Stovepipe Wells, California, via California State Route 190 to Scotty’s Castle Road, or about a three-hour drive from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Scotty’s Castle was severely damaged by flooding in October 2015, and a fire in 2021 that destroyed the historic garage/workshop that was used as the visitor center. Scotty’s Castle is temporarily closed to the public. Source: Wikipedia

    They have had a couple of really bad luck moments. Glad it’s still standing. I hope it is able to be opened to the public again (if that’s what they want). Wishing you a happy day!

  2. Wendy & Dani says:

    Who would have ever expected there to be a pseudo castle in Death Valley? Thanks for introducing me to another bit of history. It looks awesome — must be a good tourist trap.

  3. Dawn Hart says:

    What a beautiful looking place, I do love learning the history behind interesting buildings, hopefully it can be restored and opened to the public one day xxx

  4. Curious as a Cathy says:

    At first glance, my eyes only see a southwest-style villa and it’s the tower component of the architectural design that makes you think castle. That’s quite interesting. I wonder what inspired this?

  5. Alana Mautone says:

    What an interesting historic building and a shame that it had to close to the public. Maybe it’s the castle like turret that earned it its name. One can hope it reopens one day. Alana ramblinwitham

    I have been to Death Valley many times (a special place for me), but I have never been to Scotty’s Castle – it’s been closed each time for all the reasons. But I’m glad it’s still there and hopefully one day I will get to see it in person.

    By complete coincidence I also have a castle in the desert this week for WW 😺

  8. Natasha says:

    Did you manage to go there, yet, Sandee Darling. I have missed you my beautiful friend.

    Hugs and kisses. Thank you for hosting and taking time to swing by and shower your love always.

    Love ya.

    What a shame about the damaged. Will it be redone to its former glory?
    Thank you for sharing your links with us at #274 SSPS Linky. See you again next week.
