Ghost Towns and Mines

 
 

I don’t know the history of these ranch ruins but it appears to be quite old. The main house is a long, rectangular structure with thick stone and mortar walls. Large log beams support the roof. There is also a beautiful stone barn with a roof of logs and thatch. Nearby is the remains of a small log cabin. Across from the main house is the blacksmith’s shop.


I didn’t have much time to explore here because it was getting dark. I found out later that the remains of an older ranch are just up the canyon a bit, and some extensive mining camp structures even farther up the canyon. I will have to check these out next time.
