Old mine opening
This was about 1/2 way along on the switchbacks above the main mine. Inside this one was a railroad track and a tunnel we declined to go very far into.
It was nice and cool and would be a refuge on a really hot day.

It not only was dark in there, it was nice and cool. Old tracks could be seen heading in but I am not one who likes to go into the confines of the earth.

Nevada must be full of old mines. There were a bunch @ Boundary Peak and they were certainly scary. The cool breeze coming out of them felt good though.
