The Mojave Phone Booth Site
A website dedicated to what used to be the most remotely located pay phone
in the continental US - in the middle of the Mojave desert in California.
The neat thing about this pay phone is that if you called it, more than
likely someone would answer it! Unfortunately, the National Park Service
didn't like all the attention it was getting and had it removed. The
number of the pay phone was (760) 733-9969.
