I went back yet again looking for new mines to explore.
This site they were just scraping the surface dirt and rocks for gold.
No mine shafts to explore.
The shacks looked in disrepair and I suspect they were leftovers from long ago when travel to and from the mine wasn't as easy as it is these days.
Elsewhere I did locate a new mine but decided this one was pushing my comfort limit.
This one required crawling whereas the others I could stand up in.
And those big boulders placed in the entrance was enough to deter me from entering.
On the way back to camp I came across this pet cemetery near two small RV "parks" where people live year around it appears. Of course this made me think of my Sinbad.
