The abandoned Scratch Awl Silver Mine near Philipsburg, Montana was first developed in the 1870’s. It was misspelled Scratch-All after the original survey but both names refer to this site on Granite Mountain just east of Philipsburg. From the Montana Department of Environmental Quality web site: "The Scratch Awl was one of the first silver lodes discovered in the district, and recorded production in 1875 when it was worked in a small way in association with the Salmon lode. By 1907 the workings were inaccessible. The mine was reopened in 1917, when it supplied a moderate amount of manganese for the war effort. The mine recorded production nearly every year between 1919 and 1927. Between 1928 and 1939 the mine was reported to have produced 50,000 tons of manganese ore and 60,000 tons of silver-zinc ore. By 1939 the mine was the most active in the district. The mine is developed through a 500 foot shaft with three levels with 8,000 feet of workings. On the 500 foot level the mine is connected to the True Fissure lode to the north and to the Cliff lode on the west." The work was brutal but the pay was steady. The mine was operated by the Silver Prince Co. in the 1920’s and by Contact Mining Co. through the 1960’s when it closed. Most of the shop buildings have collapsed due to winter snowfall, but the main cable building and the change house (dry house) building still stands with their roofs intact. After shift showers were a welcomed relief since the underground work was hot, dusty and dirty. This site is on private property so please respect the owners’ rights and take only pictures, leave only footprints. Speaking of footprints, please watch your step! A lot of rusty nails are just waiting for your footprint! Please do not climb the structures since they are well beyond safe condition and could collapse. Also respect the fencing around the main shaft since it was placed there for your safety. Many thanks to my friend Rick from the Granite County Museum and Cultural Center. Rick provided transportation, access and insight to this historical site. Please visit the museum in Philipsburg on your next journey through the valley.

Cate Montana was a liberated woman. Beginning a career in broadcasting after college in 1973, within four years she broke into the elite male bastion of sports television as a freelance editor for NBC, ABC and CBS. By 1981 she was living the ultimate vision of the second-wave feminist: fabulous career, gorgeous condo, an attentive lover and all the freedom in the world. But what she didn't know, and was soon to find out, was that being a successful woman didn't necessarily mean being a success as a woman. A long dark night of the soul followed the break-up of her second marriage. Then a chance encounter with a shaman changed everything. Challenged to plumb the depths of her own feminine nature, she began a quest that would take her from her comfortable home in rural Washington into the heart of the Amazon jungle, up staggering peaks in the Andes, and halfway across the globe to the consecration of a temple to the Great Goddess in southern India. Opening heart and mind, she surrendered to mysteries long unexplored and forgotten... Join Cate Montana exploring the uncharted territories of the feminine soul, and travel from a conventional life to one of authenticity, deeper meaning, and ultimately the bliss of being alive.

The Miners Union Hall in the ghost town of Granite, Montana (above Philipsburg) has not aged well! Unfortunately her days were numbered at an early age! She was built in 1890 for $22,000 by the proud community of Granite. She was dedicated on December 31, 1890 with a Grand Dedication Ball. Granite had never seen a night like this before or after! She became the town’s showplace and was the hub of social life of this active mining town. In the exquisite three story building, she housed the union leaders offices and had a lounge and recreation rooms that contained billiard and card tables. The Miners Union Hall also contained a Lodge Hall and meeting rooms for various clubs and secret orders. A small library and council room were upstairs along with a reception room, ante-room and ticket booth. The Miners Union hall had the Northwest’s finest maple dance floor that supported concerts, celebrations, plays and operas. A specialty designed stage was installed for traveling theatricals, touring minstrel shows, local performances of melodramas and vaudeville acts. She was quite a lady! Three years later on August 1st, 1893 an order came to shut down the mines. Within 24 hours the town was almost deserted. The once proud Miners Union Hall was abandoned and fell into ruin. It was said that card and pool tables were still in the building in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Vandals, scavengers and Mother Nature worked in unison to strip the building of all valuables including the springboard maple dance floor. What a shame! Heavy winter snow also took its toll of the building, dropping roof timbers and floor joists to ground level. In 1966 vandals set fire to what remained. The once proud Miners Union Hall is in ruins and her walls will not be standing much longer.

In the 1870's, Pioneer Mining District had about one thousand people living in the area. Pioneer City was the main town and service center. It had a post office, four breweries, six saloons, four general stores and two hotels. By the late 1870's, gold worth over 333 billion (in today's dollars) was extracted from the area. When placer operations were no longer profitable, three dredges were used to dig down to bedrock. The town was moved and rebuilt to accommodate the destruction of the Mosier dredge. Most of the buildings in the new Pioneer City were ultimately destroyed by the dredge anyway. The buildings that survived the dredge couldn't survive dynamite and a bulldozer that was used to expand a cattle pasture. What remains today are the ruins of a few miners cabins. A poem from a bartender published in the "Missoula and Cedar Creek Pioneer" on April 27, 1871: Take pity, Miss Fanny The Belle of Pioneer And grant some indulgence To a vendor of beer Whose heart rending anguish Will bring on decline Oh, God of creation, I wish you was mine. We'd live in a parlor Behind the saloon With sour-krout in plenty For our honeymoons; We'd have schnapps by the bottle To make it go down And live in more splendor Than any in town. There is Fowler and Fischer And Wallace of yore There's cows and there's chickens And many things more But none like your Perry That sells lager beer His tender heart is breaking Each day in Pioneer. So now my dear Fanny If you will incline To join me in wedlock Just drop me a line And great expectations With me you will share Not to mention the sour-krout And oceans of beer.

By definition, Virginia City, Montana is a ghost town, yet it is very much alive. Frozen in time, this historic city provides one of the best-preserved examples of the many mining camps of the American West. Perched high in the Rocky Mountains in a bowl along Alder Gulch, Virginia City got its start when gold was discovered in Alder Gulch in 1863. Planning on keeping their discovery a secret, the men traveled to Bannack, some 60 miles to the southwest, for supplies. However, several sharp-eyed prospectors noticed their gold-filled sacks and when the men returned to Alder Gulch, some 200 miners were following them. News spread quickly and before long the area was flooded with prospectors living in makeshift shacks, tents, caves, or simply sleeping beneath the trees. In the meantime, the nation was in the midst of the Civil War and though the gold brought emigrants from all over the world, overwhelmingly the influx of miners were "rebels” from the South. Just weeks later, on June 16th, a town company began to plat the settlement. The intended on naming the town "Verona," a misspelling of "Varina,” the wife of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America. However, the newly elected miners' court judge, Dr. G. G. Bissell, was an equally stubborn Unionist who submitted the name Virginia instead. The majority of avowed secessionists living in the camp, which was then part of Idaho Territory and therefore "belonging" to the Union, made it primarily a "southern” town, with its residents’ sympathies lying with the Confederates. Furthermore, the camp was producing enough gold to win the Civil War for whoever could capture it. Due to this strategic position, President Lincoln soon sent northern emigrants into the mining camp to help hold the gold for the North. This of course caused all kinds of tension in the new city, which quickly became one of the most lawless places in the American West. Virginia City, Montana With in a year, some 10,000 people were living in a number of mining camps lining the gulch and in 1864 Congress created the new territory of Montana, separating it from Idaho Territory. Bannack, the site of the first gold strike in the area, became the territory’s first capitol. However, just a year later, Virginia City had gained so much influence that the capitol was moved. Rapidly becoming the territory’s social center and transportation hub, the shanties and tents were replaced by permanent buildings and Virginia City became home to Montana's first public school, newspaper, and telegraph. Virginia City and nearby Nevada City became known as the site of the richest placer gold strike in the Rocky Mountains. In the first three years alone, an estimated $30 million worth of gold was removed from the gulch. Sheriff Henry Plummer Though a few of the miners made their fortunes in the gold fields, and even more businessmen became wealthy, there was yet another group who planned on gaining riches another way. These were the many road agents operating in the area Though historians dispute this today, the robbers and thieves were said to have been led by none other than the Sheriff, himself – Henry Plummer. Time after time, miners, freight haulers, and stagecoaches lost anything of value to the bandits lurking about the trails to and from Virginia City. As a result, a secret society of vigilantes was formed to stop the outlaws. Lynchings became the common event of the day as the vigilantes hunted down the road agents, one by one, and stringing them up in the streets of Virginia City and Bannack. Though history now questions whether the many crimes were committed by highwaymen or perhaps the vigilantes, themselves, their is no question that the settlement was extreme in its lawlessness and violence. No sooner than Virginia City had began to boom, when the city began its gradual decline. When gold was discovered in Last Chance Gulch in what is today Helena, the fickle miners began to move. Though gold continued to be found in the area, by the early 1870’s Virginia City's population had been reduced to only a few hundred. In 1875, the territorial capitol was moved to Helena and Virginia City was on her way to becoming a ghost town.

Keystone – A Montana Ghost Town – near Superior, Montana MT. Keystone (formerly known as O’Rourke and Carter) silver lode was discovered in the 1880s in a valley northwest of Superior. Homes, a post office, hotel, boarding houses, butcher shop, miners’ union hall and a school were all built to support the 300-500 people who rushed to the area seeking their fortunes. As with most mining towns Keystone didn’t last very long. Now, only a few ruins scattered here and there remain; its population moved away long ago. Keystone has all but disappeared. This sequence was shot with a DJI Phantom 3 drone, a DJI Inspire drone (thanks Ed) and a Canon HFS-100. Post production was accomplished with Adobe Premier Pro.

Ghost Town, Ghost Dad - Join us on part 1 of our two-part adventure exploring the mountainous area around Basin and Boulder, Montana. Our first stop is the old ghost town of Comet, a once-flourishing mining town from the 1800s. Editor’s Note: In the years I’ve visited this town, I’ve noticed it deteriorating to weather, vandals, looters, and cleanup efforts of the owner. Objects that once adorned the town structures are disappearing and it’s a sad site to see the history perish. Please be respectful of the area.

Experience an exciting adventure into one of the longest abandoned historical train tunnels stretching over a mile through the mountains. Journey back in time with us to get a rare glimpse of Montana history and a remarkable feat built for the Great Northern Railway over 100 years ago. This is part two of our two-part series of Basin and Boulder. Here is part 1: https://youtu.be/w1jiEBzJSdc ---- Transcript ---- Fasten your exploration seatbelts, because today, we're experiencing part two of our adventure around Basin and Boulder, Montana. And we're going one mile that way! Today we start our journey deep in the heart of Montana mining country. Immersed in the mountain is an almost forgotten tunnel stretching over a mile through the heart of the rock. This epic feat of engineering was once a main passageway for large steam engines transferring people and valuable ore to and from the mining communities. It has stood the test of time remarkably well and remains open for a few moments longer - allowing the last modern explorers to travel back in time. All right, let's do this! It's in situations like this where I like to employ my secret weapon: activate squatch lights! The history of this epic engineering masterpiece seems to enshroud the explorer in a wave of nostalgia of the Wild West. Moving mountains was an impossible task, but for the miners of the time burrowing through the core the mountain was a familiar art. The price was high, lives were lost, but in the end this endeavor was successful. As we continue down this path, journey back into the past -Imagine the sacrifices, the brutal working conditions, and that single moment when the two end of the tunnel became one, and the pinholes of daylight finally, *finally* met and the miners from each end greet each other with celebration! Excerpt from Locomotive Engineer's Monthly Journal, 1888 The first passenger train to pass through the wind tunnel on the Montana Central was the Excursion Train to the Boulder barbeque. The engineer in charge was brother John Cochran, formerly of the Grand Trunk. The passage consumed of just 12 minutes and was made without inconvenience to those on the train. The time will probably be reduced to seven or eight minutes when the first passenger trains are put on, which will be by the 10th of November. The opening of the tunnel marks the completion of one of the most gigantic pieces of tunnel work in the northwest. The tunnel is the neighborhood of 6,200 feet long -- nearly a mile and a quarter through the solid rock of the big mountain in the Boulder Range. The entrance on this side is in the gulch about a mile above Wickes. The portals at the other ends are open at the south boundary of the great, Boulder Valley. Work was begun on a tunnel in May, 1887 and daylight was let through in September, 1888. It was constructed by Larsen Keef and company, has said to have cost about 1.5 million dollars. For rapid and excellent work, the contractors are entitled to much credit no less than for carrying successfully to completion such a mammoth undertaking which is a triumph of engineering skill! I stopped to take a picture of the water, and noticed there's this little indenture here. (Handcar Recess) Let's bring the RZR up a little closer so we can take a look inside with the light. Something you won't be able to hear on camera is just how deafening the sound of the engine is. The sound of the exhaust is reverberating off the walls. It is just overwhelming. It's truly an awesome experience! Alright, let's take a look. Ghost Dad: Oh, hey.
