Overlooking the Lower Section of the Slavin Gulch Trail.
My small point-and-shoot was no match for the bright sun and this picture only hints at the complex and amazing color that the rocks have in this area, beautiful!

Stopping point for the day at the Slavin Gulch Trailhead.
http://www.gvrhc.org/Library/SlavinGulch.pdf has some great information on Slavin Gulch and the Abril Mine including a picture identifying this as the control building for the mine - beautiful spot.
Note the old ore chute from the Abril mine, here and from a distance on the hike it looks a bit like a water stain (which would have been welcome on this rather warm day!).
http://www.gvrhc.org/Library/SlavinGulch.pdf indicates that the Abril mine was worked from 1914 to 1952.
