Trip to Castle Dome City

Monday, March 5th, several people from the park visited Castle Dome City and the Museum.
A working mining town, Gold, Silver and Lead.  The ore went by mule teams down to the Colorado River near Stone Cabin, then went down to the Gulf of Mexico and through the Sea of Cortez, then up the coast to smelters in San Francisco.  Castle Dome City used to have a larger population than Yuma!

The town square.  Cabins and period items have been moved here from the 7 other mining communities near by.  Some are original from this little city 

A good picture o the Dome that the mine and the town was named after.

Like most activities in Lynda Vista, food is a focal point.
