The Hopalong Cassidy Mine (The Alabama Hills Series)

(GPS: N36 38.915 W118 07.510)
This one is from the Hopalong Cassidy movie called The Dead Don't Dream.
There was actually a real murder committed here across the way in the 1950's. Someone was shot and killed, and the killer was sent to prison. Here is a picture from the Hoppy movie. Interesting enough, it too is about a murder, but was filmed a few years earlier than the real life murder. Life imitating art. ;)
The area is a bit worn down since 1948, but this is it. The mine is still there.
Hoppy is in front of the mine here. You can see some of the entrance.
Here is how the entrance looks today:
I took a picture of the inside. It would have been nice to walk into it, but being trapped alone in a mine is not something I really would enjoy. So, this will have to do.
I hoped you enjoyed this one!
