Not quite a vintage photo but interesting.

While in the search for old forgotten mines hiking in a way remote part of Nevada I came across this abandoned prospector camp. Makes you wonder what happened to the guy? In the pics you can see a windlass, small wooden sinking bucket, shovels, handmade wheel barrow and cooking utensils.  P1010663.JPGP1010664 (2).JPGP1010665 (2).JPGP1010662 (2).JPGP1010659 (2).JPGP1010666.JPG

Cool Bro.  Latch on to that cast iron cooking pot as some of them are worth some money according to age and manufacturer.  Also see if there is a lid to go with it somewhere around.

Tom,Ive been meaning to go back and see what else was hiding in the brush. It was getting late and had to get back to the truck. I've come across some pretty cool mining stuff by just getting off the beaten path and also getting underground.

That is the real deal. Looks like something left on the tundra of Alaska
