East of Sierras Ghost Towns & Mines

Family friendly adventure on the eastern side of the Sierra's along the California / Nevada state line. Awesome scenery, several historic mining sites, oddities in the desert and a couple of epic ghost towns. base camp is just outside of Hawthorne NV at Whiskey Flat Campground with access to bathrooms and showers for those who like less primitive conditions. Terrain is basic 4-wheel drive. Friday we'll explore along the state line including Fletcher Springs, Aurora Ghost Town, then we'll make our way through a narrow canyon and in to Bodie Ghost Town from the back side. We'll also visit the infamous Chemung Mine site where hauntings have been reported by other explorers. Saturday will take us a little further south near the Excelsior Mountains outside of Mina Nevada to several mines, one of which is safe for exploring; a couple of ghost towns and a bumpy trail to a secret intact homestead dating back to the 1800's.

For anyone wanting to arrive early we can set up camp and head out to Bridgeport for 4th of July celebrations and fireworks!
