Click-here for larger photo Photo taken looking towards where the miners settlement was situated during the mid-1800's. A location above the valley floor  would of been necessary because of flooding during heavy rain. The beginning of the road can be clearly seen in this photo, though vegetation is obscuring the rest of it on the right-hand side.
