“Great, but keep an eye on the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2010

This was a wonderful place to visit. A trail took you right into the mine operations and the old buildings. It was refreshingly open, and you could see the vault in the floor of one building, and imagine the framework at the mine head was about to fall in on you. Old pieces of metal roofing on the machine shop creaked in the breeze. It was spooky and educational. Bring biscuits for the two dogs roaming around and a carrot for the burro, or pay a little to feed him cheerios. My photos are on FLICKR, at http://www.flickr.com/photos/kathyu/4294607780/in/set-72157623134219501/

“Outstanding piece of history, see it while you can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

Wonderful place to see first hand the living conditions, machinery and landscape of an authentic ghost mining town.

http://vimeo.com/5469333 is a video of photos from the mine.

A longer less scary video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DLhzCQScT0&fmt=22

The place looks like people should still be there, toiling the day away....
