We revisited the Belmont Mill September 11, 2012.  This time we were able to speak with the construction crew that is doing the work.  What a great bunch of guys.   We learned a lot about the mill's history and were able to see first hand what is being done to stabalize and preserve this landmark mill.   The crew hopes to finish work before this winter's snows.   While there, we observed that our favorite camping building at the rear of the mill has collapsed.   How sad.   However, with the efforts from this great crew, no more buildings will fall.  We were informed that there is no restoration work going on at the upper mine tram head.   In fact, the crew isn't even allowed to go up there.
