     We ascend into a shady canyon with a cold flowing creek. This road has been washed out for over thirty years, so prepare for obstacles! After passing abandoned trucks, foundations of miners’ homes, and even climbing a waterfall we see the smoke stack of the Panamint City mine welcome us to town.
