The Wheel of Fortune Mine photos

If you think this has anything to do with the game show in which contestants spin a large wheel hoping to get rich, you're wrong and spend too much time watching TV! However, in 1897 the prospector who located this claim probably had the same basic goal. Today we'll visit the site of the Wheel of Fortune, which is located southeast of Danby inside the Old Woman Mountains wilderness area. You'll want to gear up because after this initial stop we'll be pushing deeper into the wilderness area in search of a rock house. Along the way we'll check on a small mill site and follow a trail of historic trash up to a spring. From there the rock house and its nearby mine will mark the end of our hike. Since it's spring we'll expect to see a few lizards as well! If you've got your virtual boots laced up, then let's get clicking on the link below!
