168 men lost their lives in the tragic “Spec fire” disaster on June 8, 1917. This was the greatest loss of life in hard rock mining history. Interpretive plaques tell the story of this disaster and the turbulent times that surrounded this episode. From this point, you can view an unforgettable panorama of the 10,000 ft. Highland Mountains and the scattered remnants of the once-booming mining industry.
