Anniversary Narrows

Today Wayne and I hiked to Anniversary Narrows out near Lake Mead.  On the way to the Narrows  we passed Anniversary Mine.  The mine was established in 1921 and produced colmanite until 1928.  The mine is currently being leased until the summer of 2012 but doesn't seem to be running at this point.

It appears that the stream bed just ends at the upstream end of this wash but in reality the stream bed narrows down to about a 6 ft wide narrows between the two mountain sides-- see the following pictures.

The mine is located in a wash and Anniversary Narrows is upstream from the mine and was nearly a mile long.

This shot is taken upstream of the narrows which are located in the "V" you see in the distance.
