“Early Californian” Mine

On a trip in 2005, we were hiking through thick Sierra Nevadan forest in search of an old mine with a long tramway. It turned out to be a bit of a longer hike that we thought it was going to be and we weren’t seeing a tram. Instead, we found this little mining camp. Not much here except an abandoned cabin and a nice ore car. We poked around the camp for a bit but the sun was going down, so we hiked back to our campsite. We never did find that old tramway. I guess I need to wander around the forest some more.
