Prospector Victor Trepier found gold in the Inyo mountains in 1894. He worked his claim on a small basis and it never became a large mine. He built his humble little stone cabin on the side of the mountain, near his mine.
In 2000, Micah and I hiked out along some steep trails to check the cabin out. It would not have been an easy life out here in this wilderness but he had one heck of a view.
