I like the guy in the suit. Looked too fancy to be a road construction supervisor, so... I scanned in up close, and it turns out that he appears to be a photographer, holding a tripod and a camera - see for yourself. So, not a zombiedelete.jpg !

I don't think so.  By now they are dead or zombies.  You can't reason with a zombie who wants to take a bite out of you.

We just updated our Salt Tram web portal (scroll down to find the updated topics): 
http://salttram.blogspot.com/ 

The link below reflects updated information on the San Lucas Canyon narrows, built by the Sierra Salt Co. between 1925 and 1926:

The link below reflects new information on pioneer trucker C. W. Hayes of Bakersfield, who trucked salt in and out of Saline Valley starting in 1926:

Our investigation of the Salt Tram has slowed down over the last few years, but we are hoping to pick up momentum in 2014 and get it done! If anyone is interested in joining us, the more the merrier - email us at the address below:
