Dave had asked if I could get some pictures from up high, so last Sunday Nancy joined us for a hike up 'Q' Mountain.
Although it's not a long hike, it is steep with lots of loose rocks. But the view is pretty cool.
The background on the previous picture is the town which is mostly comprised of RV parks and restaurants, but, until recently, no hotels. In fact the story is that somebody burned down the first hotel built several years ago. I don't know if that's true or just a myth.
Looking down from the top, here's the 'Q' on Q Mountain.
This is a small section of public land dotted with a few of the thousands of RVs.
And all the white dots out by the mountains are more RVs. And the big RV show doesn't even open until Saturday.
From the top of the mountain, we could see this mine so we had to check it out.
After doing a full inspection, Ron decided it was probably a stamp mill where they brought the rocks from the surrounding mines.
But there was no doubt where the trash dump was.
