Eldorado Canyon - Nelson, NV
31 images Created 1 May 2011
The images contained in this gallery were photographed on February 20th 2011. Special thanks to Tony and Bobbie Werly who maintain the property at the Eldorado Canyon Mine or also known as the Techatticup Mine in Nelson, NV. The Werly's have quite an extensive collection of Americana spread all over their property. The Werly's offer gold mine tours as well as kayak and canoe rental for nearby Colorado River excursions. The artifacts collected over the years at this site are impressive and will take you back in time. The collection of old Chevrolet vehicles, gasoline pumps, route 66 service station signs, mining equipment and assorted vintage household items is almost overwhelming. I hope to return again soon to photograph this location in more detail as I feel I've only scratched the surface with this outing. I highly recommend viewing the black and white versions of these images as they lend to the texture and mood of these items. These can be viewed in the Eldorado Canyon - Nelson, NV (B & W) gallery.
