Gold Creeks & Ghost Towns : of Northeastern Washington

Gold Creeks & Ghost Towns : of Northeastern Washington

Description

This work presents a brief look at the six historic mining counties of NE Washington. Included within these counties are some of the most fascinating and historic areas on the old Pacific Slope. Okanogan County - This is the land of Kamiakin and Tonasket' famous Indian chiefs from another century, and those men of the early west like Okanogan Smith and Pinnacle Jim O'Connell. It is the largest and one of the most fascinating counties in the state. Here the footloose and curious may wander past long forgotten towns and abandoned townsites with colorful names like Ruby, Golden, and Bodie or range through the sweeping desert lands of up into the remote high country. There is much to hold the passerby; legends of hidden gold and long lost mines, several of them still searched for by close-mouthed treasure hunters and others intrigued by the age old quest for gold. And some of those historic towns of yesterday, places like Wauconda, Nighthawk and old Molson, still stand, silent monuments to the past and little changed in almost a hundred years. Walk through the brooding recesses of McLauhlin's Canyon and along the banks of rivers with lyrical Indian manes, and you still stalk the West of the 19th Century - and THAT'S Okanogan County.
