Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum but I am enjoying all the history. I'm not sure this is the right part of the forum for this post so forgive me if I am doing this wrong.

These pictures were from last summer in the back woods of Idaho near Cascade. We visited the mine/ghost town of Cinnabar. Which is an abandoned mercury mine that the forest service has wanted to have demolished. This site is very remote and very interesting, I honestly don't think you can get their now even with a 4X4. You need a dirt bike or ATV because the road has been undercut and washed out by the stream. Any ways here are a few pics.... I think I still glow green from all the "mercury".
