The rock with all of the mines in it - the steep switchbacks we nt up that chute to the right.
Heading back down towards Black Eagle camp.

Clearing sky over Pine Creek Canyon
Back at Black Eagle camp - the shower. This place is luxurious!
Inside the Black Eagle camp 'museum' - one of the old cabins holds a lot of artifacts and information about the history of this place.
A photo on the museum wall of the mines in operation - these are the same mines we just visited.

The minerals mined here went into Champion Spark Plugs, sometimes this is called the Spark Plug mine.
Back on the trail - this is about as wide and flat as it got.
The last mile of trail before getting back to the 4x4s for the steep drive down.
Gnarly stretch. Don't fall!
The red protruding rock in the middle is the one with the mines, and the Black Eagle camp sat in the trees in the valley on the right.
The trucks had a nice view to enjoy while we did our hike.
The lower road/trail - less gnarly drive, bigger hike/climb
Back in the valley near 6 - White mtn and the canyon we've just been in.
We stopped across the road at some petroglyphs
