La Trinidad Stamp Mill

Alysia and I met up with Lewis, Cat, and Dan to try to find some old mills in the Sierras. Lewis led this trip to some great stamp mill ruins.

This mill was a great find. Besides the five-stamp mill, it has a jaw crusher and ore panner. The mill is tucked away deep in the forest and down a very steep trail. That is probably why so much is left at the site.

The mine itself is caved. And though the mill is impressive, this was never a big operation.
