Southern Nevada and Tonopah Basin

"White Elf" Mine

Dan and I came across this active claim in the remote reaches of Nevada back in 2008. It is an interesting place in some lonely country. We didn’t know it was active until we came across the camp. Of course, we left everything alone. I’m only posting a couple of photos of the camp itself as it is an active mining operation even though the owners are OK with letting people stay there.

If you do stay, please follow Backcountry Cabin Etiquette and respect the place.
