Up around 12,000 ft. sits an old mine, the Fourth of July Mine. There are winches and boilers still up there. Had to come up on mules and be assembled at the top since there is no road up, just a very narrow trail.

There's quite a variety of similar old equipment in the woods northwest of Rollinsville, also, or at least there was in the late '80's.
