Buttermilk Hill
Shot of Buttermilk Hill seen from the west side. This side has many scars from mining tungsten in the past. The center scar is a huge, deep hole fenced off for safety reasons. Very interesting. Nov.25, 2010.

I understand this shot. In my trekking I come across a lot of old relics. Have a small collection of images of them blending back to nature. Thanks for checking out the Big Horn Ram and your vote.

I love hiking and history. Checking out old mines and relics teases my senses. Your Big Horn shot is great. I've seen Nelson Big Horn sheep here in the San Gabriel mountains and think they are so cool. CJ

What exactly is tungsten? Do we still use it?

I saw one of these "old relics" on the road the other day. It must cost a fortune just to
restore one of these babies.

Tungsten is a chemical metallic element used as filament for electric bulbs to shed light. Also used in home appliances such as television sets and other high speed or power tools. It has of great importance in steel due to its carbide element which has very high density for hardening steel. It is still used today but not as prevalent as it was in the past. CJ
