The Vernon Mine is a gold mine north of Yreka, California. I have not been able to find much information on this long abandoned mine. This was taken in a side passage away from the main crosscut facing a small stope w/ a broken ladder set. A recent dead rat was visible walking through this passage. Rusting nearby is an unusual metal case w/ wooden interior, flooded w/ a rotten tarp. Above is a danger spraypaint pointing to a slab, which was probably out of view.
