Surprise Canyon

Surprise Canyon, Death Valley, California
Old abandoned mining camp in Surprise Canyon

There’s lot to explore in this area with several trailheads leading off to some major backpacking hikes (Panamint City, etc.).  At the opening of the canyon is the former Chris Wicht mining camp (aka Novak’s), which still has some impressive structures standing 100+ years after the land was being mined.
