I was told along time ago by an old prospector to stay out of that country a lot of good people have gone in there and they did not come back.

Well I'm a T-Netter, and the reason I go there is for hunting. Deer hunting. Some of the biggest mule deer in the US of A hang out there.

I have only been able to identify one ghost town in the area: Coconino/Ryan which is southwest of Jacob Lake.

Hi Samanthy, the area in question is extremely isolated. Due to this, and the ruggedness of the area I don't think there too many early settlers. Although isolated and rugged, it's a beautiful area and worth the trip if you ever get the chance. Many accesses the the area are annually closed Nov-May due to weather/heavy snow, so check first. Good luck out there!

Years ago I went to North Rim at the Grand Canyon. I have never been anywhere near the I-15 part in the west.

You should consider the west rim.... around Meadview. There is a meteorite strewn field SW of there. I go up there often. Haven't found my meteorite yet but also GOLD in the Gold Basin there. ╦╦C
