Ghost Towns:

In 2007 I undertook a trip to Oregon in the US with the aim of visiting some of the Ghost Towns in that state. To me these towns areinteresting, because many of them aren't directly associated to the boom of the 19th Century Gold Rush. Therefore they aren't your stereotypical Ghost Town. To this end the towns in Oregon lived and died for many different reasons, and so show a different side to the what it means to be a Ghost Town.
