    I think mining also ruined the length of Burke-Canyon creek, at least according to the EPA.

      P.S. This is a great photo to show how steep the canyon wall actually are! Hope you didn’t drink the water.

    Beautiful and yet not in a way because of the ruins of the mining done. But nature itself there is beautiful and can’t imagine how people wanted to live in such a closed in place.

    Here’s a story link posted by Robert a few days ago, that may have been overlooked, but it really adds some depth and colour to the history of Burke’s Canyon, and definitely worth the read. Here is Robert’s original comment:

    Here’s an interesting article written about the town’s then oldest resident back in July of 2002. Wonder if she’s still alive.
