    wow! i wish we had places like that in france!

    where is that about?

    only place i went to in the usa was california... and i have to say, it looks a bit like the landscapes you see when you go hiking in the californian deserts near the death valley... but i am shure this has nothing to do with it! :p

    any ideas about what that thing actualy is?

    I'm going to guess the headstock from a long abandoned gold stake. Bisbee?

    This is the Evening Star tin mine in the Mojave National Preserve, about 60-70 miles due south of Death Valley.

    Sort of correct. This is really wierd because since they hauled the ore up out of the ground, instead of just loading it to be milled elsewhere they had a rock crusher at the top to smash the rock down before transporting. Much more efficient, but harder to setup.
