  • When I was a young child, my friends and I played in a rock crevasse that as we dug deeper it opened into a horizontal shaft. This shaft was timbered for support.  I was not allowed to go any further than the opening into the shaft.  My older brother and his friend went into the shaft with flashlights.  I remember watching the lights going deeper and deeper into the shaft until they became very dim.   We as a group swore to keep this shaft secret, as we had convinced ourselves that we had found some valuable lost gold mine.  Before we had any chance of further exploration the owner of the property discovered that we were digging on his property and from fear of liability that we would be hurt, he dynamited the opening shut, and maybe a great portion of the shaft collapsed as well.  We are not sure that he had any knowledge of the shaft beyond the opening.  We were never allowed to go near to area again.  This owner has been long since passed on and the property has changed hands.  The only thing for sure is that  the rock out cropping and shaft behind and within are still remaining.  Well except for the possibility of cave in from the original blast and subsequent cave-ins since.
