Secret Panamint Tunnel

Over twenty-five years ago, I found this little mining tunnel high in the Panamint Mountains, west of Death Valley. This adit is unique because it is filled with water and flowstone. It was beautiful inside.

Tunnels like this in mines are rare, especially in the desert. Hopefully, the flowstone will continue to grow and create new formations. Not too many folks know about this hidden and certainly seldom visited spot.

I’m not giving directions to this one. Maybe one day I will return to check on it and re-evaluate.

These old photos are scanned-in and dusty, so the quality isn’t that great.
