#72: The Final Images from Pine Creek
Here is the last of three posts from our Pine Creek adventure with Lynn Goodfellow. It was 7pm before we returned back to the mill, so the light as the end was great. The colors in the trees and mineral-rich rocks was awesome going up, but much more vivid on the trip back. Read the captions above each picture for details.
Also-Lee, Mark and Jim, I responded to your comments down below. Thanks a lot for continuing to check out what we’re doing. It’s because of you guys that we keep this up! If you guys keep stopping by to look at the pictures, we’ll keep putting them online.
This is the highest mine, right on the backside of Wheeler Crest. It is one of the highest mines in North America.
This is looking back towards Goodfellow’s mines and Pine Creek. If you look closely at the hillside on the left, you can see many of the main tungsten mines.
This sure looks like a Bristlecone, but I don’t think it is. Anybody know?
The white patch in the upper left is The Shirley Temple Mine. It was bought by the Shirley Temple’s family after she made a lot money as a child actor in the 1930s. It looks like there’s a rabbit waiting on the road to the mine.
This is one of the towers for the ore tram that carried ore from the mines down to the mill.
Finally, here is the mill right before we pulled back in. What a great trip. That was one I will never forget.
