    Seems like someone had been using the site as a trash dump! Or they just
    never bothered to haul away some of that stuff after the mine closed.

    Be careful stirring up to much dust when there is mouse droppings on the
    ground. Hantavirus is some serious shit that kills 38% of the people who
    get it. I know its pretty common in the southern regions. Just a word of
    advice is all for the future. Most likley these droppings were from
    kangaroo rats hanta is carried from deer mice

    That was very interesting . Those old can piles might have some cans at the
    bottom that are still good .

    I don’t know how far out in the desert you were but someone must have hated
    that washing machine so much they drove all the way out fhere in the desert

    How to cut way down on wind noise is by placing a piece of foam over the
    camera mic, held in place by a couple of rubber bands.

    Considering the isolation, and what carpeting is often used for, I’d check

    Nice video man! Every time I see all of those timbers just sitting there, I
    think of all of the cool things that I could make with that old-growth
    timbering. Anything you made out of it would have a cool back story as
    well.

    looks like some squatters have stayed in that mine a few times, or just
    campers who like to leave trash behind, shame they have to junk the place
    up

    Great video, Frank! That dragon was quite nifty, I thought. What do you
    think of all those cans? That’s a lot of pork and beans, lol….or could
    they actually have something to do with the mining industry? Odd…..
