This is an amazing old photo! However, due to the presence of the 2 smelter smoke stacks, I believe that this is a photo of a ghost town down the hill from Granite, Kirkville. Granite never had a smelter, which explains the massive tram works, that you can still the ruins of, that run down the mountain side. The Granite mines would send their ore to Kirkville to have it assayed and smelted.

This building was burned down in 1967, due to safety concerns. I COULD BE COMPLETELY WRONG, but this what I feel based on a recent trip and study of the area.

What brgy are this located..?

This photo is of a Aircraft Fire Fighting Training Device.

Andrew... No problem !! My little brother and I revisited the neighborhood this time last year and were amazed at the changes / similarities !

You're buying the single story two doors to the North ?? I forget who owned that... but I remembered for a decade the front yard was a JUNGLE !! GOOD Luck !!

Ha yeah that's good ol Aircrew school for you.

Great to know that you don't care, considering a few people were killed in the parking lot.

Hey there: My name is Christopher Murphy and I've been working as the Archery Rangemaster at Camp Hi-Sierra for the past 2 years.

His name is Mike Murphy, and his e-mail is Also, his home phone is (408)-629-3448. Plus, this year we celebrate the 60th anniversary of camp, so once the muckity-mucks get planning, we may have some events to tell you about, which you as an alumni might be interested in.

Alright, that's about it, except I'm too curious not to ask a question of my own. What were the approximate dimensions of the cabin you built and how close to the river was it? I'm interested because it might be our current Nature cabin you speak of, whose origins are lost in the depths of time. Give me a ring at

Oh, and Vaa'dat'n'chu!

Fox Fire is on the West side of the creek ?? Yes, when my brother and I were examining the satellite photo we noticed the old boat-house was gone.

Nice shot of the Cogen !!

Very NICE !! I haven't been up to Alpine Meadows since 1986... New lift buildings, but the MOUNTAIN is sure the same.
