    "lost german miner miner" or someones mine

    Years ago I had been hiking into the san gabriel mountain range with a late start in the day I found myself still hiking at 2 am in the mornining ,really tired I decided to go over the ridge and take a short cut back towards Mt. baldy . When I got to the ledge in the shadows I thought I saw a bear standing tall so to startle him away from my area I threw a rock "PATINGGGG" something rang out I went closer only to find a double wood burning stove with enamle dishes and saucer and cup stiil
    on top I quickly grabbed the cup and saucer threw it in my backpack found a mine next to that area left to never find it again.

    Hi,

    There is a story by Big Bear about a lost mine.
    Check CA treasure books.

    well it was not lost I was , I found the location by climbing up a steep cliff at 2 am in the morning and not thinking clearly found a different way off the mountain , it was not until later I found the web sight and with pics of the stove and location of the stuff.

    It was the "stanly miller mine" see attached link or cut and paste. this is a very good web site.

    Until I found this site I was sure nobody knew of the mine I found, shows to go ya .... I was a little backwards.... it is well known..... just not visited much

    Glad the story took the turn it did! Glad it wasn't a bear (probably not as much as you!). Glad also to hear you made it out safe.

    One more reason I like to carry my GPS I can pop a waypoint for later. Now all I gotta do is get the time to get back to all those 1,186 places I found interesting stuff at
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
    "Hold my beer and watch this!"
