In the photos above and below, Chloride Falls pours over an 18 foot high cliff within a scenic and historic mining canyon
...a beautiful 10 falls drops into a deep pool... we were able to climb around it at the far left hand side of the photo below
This 8 falls below is the first one we came to when hiking upstream from parking below... an old concrete dam remains on top of it.
...nice to walk along the stream flowing over clean and smooth bedrock...
many intact mining relics abound, as shown in these last three photos
Homes and buildings... even a small smelter furnace
this enclosed wooden headframe could tell many a tale...
