Mesnard Basement

Mesnard Basement by dcclark

The "maintenance corridor" which surrounds the outside of the old Mesnard mine's giant cement hoist foundation. The Mesnard was also the site of one of the last hopes for the Copper Country's copper industry -- the Homestake copper exploration of 1976. They searched but didn't find enough to keep going. Now all that's left are foundations and a giant steel headframe.

Lookout View

Lookout View by dcclark

The view from "The Cliff Lookout" aka "The Anvil" aka many other names -- a lookout along the Cliff Range. I snowshoed up to this lookout by following the ridge line (visible here) all the way from the North American mine.
