Hanging Flume Mining Wonder

By  Melissa P. Wilson

History of the Hanging Flume and Mining in Uravan.

Uravan Hanging FlumeThe Hanging Flume was a $100,000 mining project funded by wealthy out-of-state investors and built during Telluride’s gold rush, between 1889 and 1891. The flume was operated only three years following its construction and was abandoned due to an inability to turn a profit. By the time it was deserted in 1894, $1 million had been invested into the entire mining operation, which yielded a dismal $80,000 return. Continue reading

Little WildHorse Slot Canyon – San Rafael Reef, Utah

Montrose Adventure Blog


This beautiful 8-mile hike winds through some of Utah’s best (and most popular) slot canyons: Little Wild Horse and Bell Canyons. We left our BLM campsite (located up a 4×4 access wash!) and started at the trailhead at about 8am. We began the hike with other groups of people hiking along near by. When we reached the “Y” we headed up Bell Canyon to ditch the crowds as most people hike this loop up Little Wild Horse, then down Bell.

With eerie quietness, we groped along the narrow walls and scrabbled up and over boulders lodged between the walls. The faint call of Canyon Wren could be heard admits the steps of our feet atop the sand and river stone.

The trail opened up as we exited Bell Canyon and traversed an old jeep trail for a mile or so; the jeep trail connected us to a wide wash, which…

Moon House Ruin—a bit off the beaten path.

Moon House Ruin

Moon House Ruin

Worth The Journey

This ruin is really off the beaten path, but is well worth the journey. Moon House Ruin is nested under the slick rock near the bottom of McLoyd Canyon. West of Blanding, Utah, and just south of the Kane Gulch Ranger Station, it is an adventure just navigating to the trailhead. Once you travel nearly ten miles of light off-roading and boulder 1.5 miles into the glorious canyon, the pure size and beauty of these ruins and the surrounding geography will sweep you away.
