Fantastic pictures!

Thanks for sharing.

What impresses me is the remoteness of these old mines.
 
Prospectors went out into the wilderness and located a body of ore;
mines were constructed; and ore had to be shipped out. 

Not an easy task even for today.

Wow, you really find the cool places!

The emptiness and solitude of Nevada really makes you appreciate how challenging life was
for folks that eeked out a living there back in the day.

Thanks for posting.
