In the 1800s, Spooner Summit was the point where logs from the mills at Glenbrook were unloaded from train cars and loaded into a flume to be sent down to Carson City. Both the flumes and the railroad tracks can be seen.

We have a number of historians who like to contribute to the page who have done a fair share of research and we very much appreciate that. This photo is of Spooner Summit Camp around 1875. Highway 50 runs right through here today. You may notice there are very few trees. The forest has been denuded of trees. In fact most of the trees at Tahoe are second growth. The relationship between the lake the Virginia City mines is remarkable. I will have more to say about the lumber companies going forward. I think this is a UNR photo but not sure.
