Random picture of ~50's BlueBird or IH bus in high desert?

The other day in "Random Pictures" a ~50's era school bus popped up. It had been left in the high desert many years ago to rust. Sand drifted all around in a field of sage and mountains in the back ground.

I've admired and taken pictures of old busses for almost 35 + years.
In my excitement I managed to close the window and of course it was gone.

Anychance of anybody knowing how I might locate the picture again?

Thanks

Funny, I too like pictures of old bus's. Was it this one? I came across it near Striped Butte Valley in Death Valley. I have it printed on canvas in my office.

That's it I'm sure!! Most Excellent!
The pic I saw was a more of a side view. I'm going to see if you posted others of the same bus. How far off the beaten path is that bus? I'd put it on my list of fantasy "Geo Cashing(?)" locations

I thought there was no possible chance of a response and felt bad for folks spending time reading the thread, was trying to see if there was a way to delete it.
Glad I wasn't able to, thanks!
