One of the days we will wheel to the War Eagle Mine near Tecopa.
We take the Sperry Wash trail that follows the Amargosa River. Several shallow crossings.
Make sure you have fresh flashlight batteries. I goes on like this for an hour walk. Then it goes down a ramp.
This is the ramp that goes down to the lower levels. It's about a 30 degree slope.
Another view of the shaft going down. It looks flat, but it is fairly steep.
There is plenty of time to plan this. Dust off the tent, or break out the camper. It's a great way to spend Presidents day weekend. Some sand cruising, watching sand drags and hillclimbs, (Unless your Jeep is badarse, then get in on it) An old gold mine daytrip, sitting around a campfire with other Jeepers and sandrail people.
Or, you could clean the garage that weekend!
