Log Cabin Mine Alunite Ridge




Plate 246. LOG CABIN MINE ALUNITE RIDGE 1923-2000 Viewed northeast to the Log Cabin Mine on Alunite Ridge in the Tusher Mountains. Aspen has increased in height but has not regenerated in many years. Conifers too have increased and now block the original view. Nevertheless, much of the mine area has naturally revegetated.
