DAYTRIPPIN' - "Remnants of Rush"

by Brenda Nelson January. 26, 2012 3746 views

There was a time when this zinc mining town called Rush, Arkansas had over 5000 people who lived in it. Now, it's only the remains of old buildings with an old story to tell.

My kind of place and shots Brenda. I love the distressed and abandoned!!
The shots are great! I really like #5.

Larry loses his edge a bit holding a camera versus a gun or knife!! :)

Normally I'm a huge fan of old abandoned buildings... and these are terrific.... but I must say that your shot of the road is spectacular!

Places like this are very intriguing! Their remnants always make me want to piece together some story from the past! Great adventure I'm sure! (Good thing Larry didn't get caught, haha!)

Quaint old place, and a great ride and picnic lunch at Rush! (We had no trouble finding a table at the campsite!)

Larry"s a rebel...riding his motorcycle, wearing the leather and entering into the unsafe building! :) Great pictures of a cool old place!
