Telluride - Alta Mining Camp

Alta Camp - Telluride, Colorado, iPhone4s
This image is one of the many old mining camps located in the Telluride area. Slowly they are restoring these camps to their original condition. This building is where the miners slept after putting in 16 hour days. They worked in shifts as there were only space for 8 miners to sleep at one time. I was told that the gold mined each day was worth one million dollars.

From a photograph point of view these are wonderful places to make images - but only if you can make it at 10,000 feet - and it is tough....
