    Trail? What trail? This is a good part. A lot of the trail was in completely invisible covered in high weeds.

    I'm not forgetting about you paranormal fans out there. I know its a trick of the light, but in my heart I wish a blue orb was really something.

    Thumbs up

    Hooray! Good going, nice pictures!
    Did you find the mine itself amidst all those radiator clogging weeds? Did you metal detect? (don't forget 60/40) It looks like it was quite a settlement.

    Laura,
    It was so badly overgrown that I was covered from chest to toe with stickers from the weeds.

    Frankly, I was concerned with falling through a weed covered hole.

    I'm not sure if that was the stamp mill,or it was elswhere. I'm sure there were treasures under the weeds, but between the heat, the bugs, and the stickers inside my shirt, I was getting aggravated.

    I took a trail up the hill from the mine, were the graveyard is supposed to be, found the remains of one other building, but the trail, by then had deteriorated far, far beyond my comfort level. Between getting more narrow, rockier (think Bluebird rockier), with almost zero visability through the weeds, and I had enough. I was lucky up to that point, and something told me not to push on any further.

    Thaks for the link. If I return and find any metamorphosed grits of probable Cretaceous age,
    I'll split 60/40with you.

    Personally, I prefer french fries.

    here's a picture of the second building:

    hmmm 60/40 your generosity overwhelms me "metamorphosed grits of probable Cretaceous age" maybe with a little butter they'd be edible?
    There's no telling what goodies were hidden by the weeds.
    Here's a small reference to the stamp mill.

    Thanks, but that was taken word for word from "Ghost town of the month" site.

    Jeez, you know, I appreciate all the feedback, but I was hoping to get a few more comments from the general public, this being a "ghost town" forum and all.

    Maybe Bob was right, and this forum is dying.
