The sunbeams are winding their way through the snowclouds. I am rising out of Death Valley to engage in some reverie, a journey into times past. Prospect pits, phantoms from boom times’ extinct, appear on the side of the road. Soon, I enter the Bullfrog Mining District.

Fatal injuries at mining operations in the United States last year decreased nearly six percent from the previous year, according to preliminary data from the US Department of Labor’s Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
