    Allegedly this was a Southern Pacific Rail Road observation, signal hut. From the turret one can see up and down RR tracks for many miles and can detect avalanches, track and trestle bridge problems and post a warning signal light to train engineers before days of radio. All abandoned now, just fresh graffiti from a prior visitor the morning we visited. It looks like a very romantic place for a sunset, full moon or meteor shower. Any excuse to kiss a pretty girl, right guys?

    Very pretty picture.


    Neat history about the rail road connection to that rock hut.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    The pretty picture is of Upper Lola Montez Lake,a truly pretty lake poised on edge of major precipice, view awesome in opposite direction also. Lola Montez was a famous operatic singer who traveled the gold camps of the sierras during Gold Rush entertaining with her angelic voice. Unlike the Dance Hall girls and camp followers Lola Montez was symbolic of virtuous feminine qualities for the lonely miners who toiled hard far from home and family. She brought european old world charm and culture to otherwise wild west.
