    • Yes, in an isolated and lonely way. I suspect that the Japanese who were interned here during WWII saw some beauty but the dust, cold, heat and very different environment caused a deep anxiety.

  1. Tim, have these barracks been recently rebuilt? I don’t remember seeing them at Manzanar before, or at least from 395.

    • These were rebuilt. I remember being told that the origin buildings on the site with the exception of what is today the visitor’s center were all sold off and can be found on farms and in cities around the area.
