The Ghost Town of Joy is located in the Drum Mountains between Mt. Laird and Lady Laird Peak.  Little is known about Joy.  Extensive mines through the area indicate that a lot of activity took place here.  The highest mine located at the top of a nearby mountain wasn't very big.  However, the lower mines at town level were deep and extensive.  There are no standing buildings left at Joy.  Several wood piles of former buildings dot the area.  Joy is well secluded with plenty of wood for campfires.

this is one of several mines in the area
