A view from the bricked lined balcony at Death Valley's Scotty's Castle. A visitor sits in a chair enjoying the view. The outline of the mountains can be seen in the hazy distance. Formerly called Death Valley Ranch, Scotty's Castle was built, but never completed, in the 1920s. Flamboyant cowboy, storyteller, Walter Scott, convinced Chicago millionaire Albert Johnson to invest in his (fraudulent) gold mine in the Death Valley area. Johnson actually spent time vacationing and recuperating from illness at the property, which is now a museum.
