One day in late 2010, Ed and I decided to hike to some old mine sites above White Mountain City. The mines around here are from the same time period but this area is farther away from the old ghost town, so we didn’t expect to find much up there.
We were right, there isn’t much up here but we did find a few small mines and prospects as expected. We did however also find some old rock cabins and that was a pleasant surprise. I couldn’t track down any information on these minor workings. The mines and ruins probably date to the 1860s or 1870s, which is the same time period White Mountain City was founded.
