Looking west down the Dolores River, 11 July 2008. Barely visible in this picture is the mining flume built along the side of the cliff in the lower right and center of the picture.
The longest hanging flume in the US, 13 miles long, built around 1889. Starts at the town of Uravan. Cost was over $220K and was used for only a short time after it's construction to separate gold from alluvial deposits. Is on the list of 100 most endangered historical sites in the world.
