On Sunday, we took my sister and her friend up into the mountains to Victor. We spent a half hour wandering the Vindicator Valley Trail, enjoying the view.

Even at the relatively early hour of 9:00 am, the sun was intense and there was a lot of glare.
A shopkeeper in Victor told me that the mine still owns the land and the old buildings and that within the next five to ten years, they plan on mining the entire area. All the old buildings will be lost unless the town can convince them to move them. I told her I thought the whole trail and the town should be turned into a National Historic Park.
