Sam’s Ses Challenge #5: Mountain

Welcome to Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I will pick a word or phrase as the theme for that week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with that week’s challenge. Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Click here to learn more.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Mountain.

Here’s my contribution:

Bonanza Mine in Alaska is just 4½ miles hike up Bonanza Peak from the ghost town of Kennecott, but a climb of well over 4000 feet. Mine and ghost town, both abandoned in 1938, feature in the fourth Jaspa's Journey adventure, The Hermit of Kennecott

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be sure Sam and I get to see it.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge was itself partially inspired by Jo’s Monday Walk.

  3. That is the remains of the Bonanza upper tram terminal. The incredibly high-grade copper ore entered the ore bunker from a tunnel just behind this (now sealed). This was the original Kennecott discovery, at approximately 6,000 ft elevation. The other connected mines in this group were the Jumbo, Mother Lode (as featured in the Discovery TV series “Edge of Alaska”), the Erie and the Glacier Mines. This mine group operated from 1911 until final closure in 1938.
