Total Wreck Mine and Ghost Town, 7 Nov 2009
Welp, I wanted to head back out to Total Wreck Mine area and see if I could locate the town site. It turns out last time I looked for it I was on the wrong side of the hill. Once on the correct side of the hill, up high enough, and knowing where to look it’s actually pretty easy to see.
The old picture you will see of the town was taken in 1885 so after 125 years there’s not much left of it, mostly shards of wood planks and pieces of rusted tin cans. The old main road through town is still used so it’s easy to see, but the road on the hillside is overgrown. Though you can just make it out from a distance, once you’re on the road it all but disappears. If it wasn’t for finding parts of the foundation to Mr. Vail’s house sticking out of the dirt I might not have found the road at all. So enough already, click on the first picture then click next…
