The Frisco mine appears to be massive.  The vertical entrance located at the headframe (see picture on previous page) reeks of an odor that we believe to be sulphur.  Due to this, and other unknown odors, we considered this mine too dangerous to explore.  Frisco is located just north of a paved highway.  The cemetery is accessible, but the roads to the town and mine are gated.  Access requires making your own road across the desert.  Once there, camping can be considered secluded.  Plenty of scrap wood is available for a campfire.  The highway is visible from most parts of the town.  After visiting Frisco several years ago and while on a non-ghost town related flight, we made a fuel stop at Milford airport.   We were told that a Jade Buddha was discovered in Frisco and sold for a million dollars.
