Lake and Vesper Glacier from Vesper Peak, Cascade Mountains
was taken from the summit of Vesper Peak in the North-Central
Cascade Mountains. The area was a hotbed of gold and silver mining
activity in the late 1800's through the early part of the 20th
century. Most mining stopped when it became too costly to get
the ore from the mines to the smelters in the lowlands around
Seattle. They also found that most of the valuable ore was located
too deep in the rock to make for easy and economic removal.
Many of the
old mines still dot the mountainsides of the Monte Cristo area
in Washington state.
