    I walked into a well-stocked kitchen. Yucca trees dot the landscape. Rumors of mines being blasted shut with Chinese miners still inside them circulated, but there was no solid evidence to support these tales. Many of them returned to work with the company still owing them back pay. Once, on a previous trip, I met an old prospector who told me that famed test pilot, Chuck Yeager, used to sneak out to an airstrip in the vicinity to go hunting. If I wanted to continue, I would have to make the descent.

    Or use your smart phone with Trimble Geocache Navigator to search when you get there. Whether he returned is unknown. The train would pause in front of the Sego schoolhouse before continuing on to the mine, which considerably disrupted scholarly activities when school was in session. These slide shows are primarily divided into the following major topics [from menu bar under welcome banner - top of page]:.

    This is a slide show depicting some of the photos I took. The company began to expand mining operations far beyond Ballard's unambitious scale, installing a modern coal tipple and the first coal washer west of the Mississippi River. I drove around to see what other abandoned places I could find in this amazing town, and happened upon a vast junkyard. See our Christmas page for additional details. GPS isn't a player.
