The Mount Ophir experience

Through the years I’ve trekked through many exciting areas within Central California. Sometimes the least expected region can have lasting memories. I received an email from our local Senior Hiking group with the information on a mining area around Mariposa. The summer season fires, including the nearly 82,000 acre Detwiler Fire, had burnt through and opened up an old forgotten mining area from the 1850’s called Mount Ophir at 4,186 feet.
