Norwich Bluff at Sunset

Norwich Bluff at Sunset by dcclark

Norwich Bluff was once the site of many early copper mines. Now, it's a rugged and wild place to explore.

I camped at the base of this bluff in the fall, enjoying a terrific windstorm and a bit of rain too. I spent the entire next day climbing up the face of this bluff, through its valleys and ridges, and finding old mines. It was wonderful.

The scale in this photo doesn't necessarily show just how huge the bluff is. Compare those trees at the top with the aspens in the foreground: they really are that different.
