    Ahh Death Valley. Yeah big difference. Death Valley has a lot of cool stories about it.

    I have often wondered if the river story and under ground city story in Death Valley was actually a twisted take off of the Titus canyon incident.

    Titus Canyon is located on the opposite side of the Valley kind of caddy cornered across from the Panamints.

    Now back in the 1920's an investment group was actually selling "river front" plots of land located on the Amargosa river. Their advertising even showed river boats in Titus Canyon at a town called Leadfield.

    Leadfield it's self was a supposedly a rich lead mining area. However the ground had been salted and the so called mines in the area were worthless.

    Unsuspecting people were buying these plots up sight on seen.

    The buyers of said land did not realize that the Amargosa river mainly runs underground and barely has enough surface water to float a fish let alone a stern wheel river boat.

    The ruins of Leadfield can still be seen today if one cares to take the 27 mile trek down the one way road through Titus Canyon.
