The legacy of mining in the Santa Ana Mountains is full of deep holes where todays adolescents explore, hide, and perhaps find themselves: its an easy metaphor for coming of age in a grown-up world that tries to bury wildness and imagination. Sealed off by the U.S. Forest Service, the caverns and tunnels of Silverado Canyons famous Blue Light mine complex once lured young adventurers who found mystery, but lost their lives.
