Summit Spring

Summit Spring is one of the more reliable springs in the Providence Mountains. It is, unfortunately, fouled by burros.

Providence Mine and the Frisco Group

This group of mines comprises at least 6 claims in the Kelso Mining District. There are a number of shafts and tunnels 200-400 ft. deep. The mines have apparently been idle since 1926. The last known owner was P. Thibedeau of Kelso, CA. The photograph at left shows Roland, Scott, Jim, Julie and Gray in front of the powder house at the Providence Mine.
