Endowment Mine

This fairly remote and old silver, lead, and zinc (with some traces of gold and copper) mine is a pretty neat site. The old camp dates from the 1870s and was reworked in the 1920s.

The mine has four levels (not including the adit level) and a few thousand feet of workings. For how old the mine is, it still looks to be in good shape. The cabin needs repairs, though. If you do stay here, follow Backcountry Cabin Etiquette.

My photos are from 2002, 2009, 2011, and 2014.
