An abandoned ranch on the east side of the tracks. This was not the Colmor Cutoff they were waiting for.
A tunnel connecting the two larger caves in the hill; those that Jacob vented in the rear. The vents are still extant!
The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator.
Between the ice chute and the back of the north section of the cellars, a little pillar shows where a room used to be. The ceiling’s disintegration has since filled the space, which seems to be the last point of expansion in the cave–this was last carved in the mid-1840s.
