Wild horses behind the Opera House
Driving through Death Valley looking for a place to shoot a "Five Minutes with Mike" video and came across The Amargosa Hotel & Opera House. 30 miles from the nearest gas station, no restaurants, no stores, just a run down hotel & this theater. Artist & Ballet dancer Marta Becket broke down here in 1967 and decided to leave New York and spend the rest of her life painting and performing in her own theater. She is in her eighties and still performs. Amazing life story, super-creepy place at night, I love it here.
