Lake Tahoe and Northern Sierra

Herman Mine Stamp Mill

In 2004, Alysia and I met up with Lewis, Cat, and Dan to hunt for some old mine ruins nestled deep in the Tahoe National Forest of the western Sierra Nevada. Lewis showed us this great stamp mill hidden deep in the forest. The mine was fairly large at one time but is caved now.

Unfortunately, in August of 2013, the remains of this magnificent old thirty stamp mill was destroyed by the 22,400 acre American wildfire. Enjoy my photos.
