Back in June, I took a weekend camping trip up to the Sierras with some good friends and headed up to this lookout to shoot sunset. I had been here once before, back in March, but it was nice to come back during warmer weather. We were treated to a colorful sunset before dropping back down into the valley for some night shooting.
This is a mining cabin from a Death Valley Mine, which opened in 1917 and was was known to have the largest body of proved commercial-grade ore in the region. During the years of operation, this mine produced 16,000 tons of crude ore, which yielded 5 million lbs of lead, 100,000 ozs. silver, 1,500 ozs gold, and 146,000 lbs of copper.
