They are all very nice but I like the light from the first one and the view from the last.

Nice shots! Where is the mine on White Mountain Peak? I couldn't find Spark Plug Mine, not even on Lewis' website ( http://www.ghosttownexplorers.org ), and I thought he had been to all the mines! All I came up was talk about spark plugs, "spark ... and mine are still going strong after 30000kms (the plugs look like new)." LOL!

Nice shot of Basin Mtn and Mt Tom too! Cool peaks!

Thanks!

This picture shows the spot on the cliff with the opening shown above. The intact part of the mining camp is in the trees below. Just underneath that puft of cloud is the summit of White Mountain Peak. This place is incredible.

Here is a shot of one of the bunkhouses, the makeshift museum, and behind is the "cafeteria" building.

From the vertical shot above, I cropped out the middle of the picture. You can see the cabins(they're gray) of the mining camp scattered in the trees. they are 1500' below.

Here is a wide angle shot looking up towards the mountain behind the mining camp.
