Fox Mountain pics

Published:

 

A burned out cabin ruin with an aspen tree growing out of the inside, bear claw marks 12 feet up, 3 hand forged nails, a longtom sluicebox axed out of a 3 foot diameter log, a spring 75 feet above the sluice, an arrastra below. 

 

A mysterious map chiseled on the face of a 300 pound rock surface depicting the exact layout of the canyon, the cabin, the waterfall, all so accurately depicted the person had to have scrutinized the layout from the mountaintop, then scratched it on this stone 600 vertical feet below and half a mile away.  The rock was carefully placed on the canyon wall above eye-level so it was easily seen, but only by someone looking up:

Symbols carved into rock faces long ago on the upper-west face of the mountain below the most heavily worked quartz outcroppings near the crest.

We found everything aspiring searchers could want except the Lost Adams Diggings during that 1998 search.

Glad they finally loaded for you shalini. They're slow on my comp, too. They're up as thumbnails on my website so's the visitors to the site do their waiting after the page is loaded and they want to see them, rather than while they're making a decision about whether it's worth waiting for.
