Michigan Bluff Part 3 "Meet & Greet"

Michigan Bluff Part 3 "Meet & Greet"

At one time this town boasted 3000 residents today very little remains with the exception of the local cemetery and a few historic homes. There are residents that live here but not many. Upon entering the town I was greeted by this beautiful white horse which I spent more time with then actually investigating the paranormal lol. The Western Trail cuts through town which meanders all the way to Last Chance and Deadwood. At one time this town was plagued by tragedy as fire burned it down in the 1850s followed by a massive landslide that brought down the entire original town site into the abyss of the Great Foresthill Divide a canyon formed by the American River. Gold was mined in this town as tunnels ran underground bringing in profits in the 1800s of 100k per month! One of the most amazing structures which is no longer standing was the Phoenix Hotel sadly things have quieted down but this was a true place during the Gold Rush which symbolized the wild west in the high sierras!
