Skookum Mine (new Death Valley report) released

Today we are releasing our newest Death Valley hiking report featuring Day 1 of a backpacking trip to Skookum Mine and mining camp.  Skookum experienced a flurry of activity when gold was struck in 1927 and we found it to be an enjoyable place to visit with great scenery on the way up.  The new report on Skookum Mine can currently be found as report #54 on the site’s Main Page or you can also click on the link below.  The follow-up report for Day 2, which features a visit to Peak 6980 in the Last Chance Range, will be coming soon.
