Courtland and Gleeson

Were both thriving mining towns at the turn of the century. Courtland is long gone but there are still people living in Gleeson although there are no businesses. The land around there is beautiful with 100 mile vistas to Mexico.

 The Courtland Jail. Ironically the only building still standing. Re bar and cement last longer than adobe!
