the hike is about 1/4 mile
This mining operation is the first thing you see as you hike up the road

these are in decent shape
Several Structures are in the area

the area is well secluded
Another Building at Morris camp

Morris Camp dates back to 1915 when silver was first discovered here.  The discovery of scheelite and tungsten brought greater life to this mine during World War 1.   50 men worked this area in the mid 1930s.  By 1955 all mining in the canyon had ceased.

lots of hiking here
Several Buildings had good Roofs

probably true
Did this Building really shelter 9 miners?

a landslide prevents driving to this area
Gary & Andrew hike up to the Mine
