A few years back a wildfire broke out on the slopes of Chink Peak (now known, due to a chink of PC, as Chinese Peak) above the Sheriff's Office. No problems, no property destroyed or lives lost. But when it was over the county and state dynamited six abandoned mine shafts about which they had no idea before the fire.

An old Chinese fella used to live up on that mountain, so I'm told, after he'd chink his cabin with moss and mud to keep out the drafts of winter, he grow wonderful vegetables to sell to those below him. He died with a very nice bank account and asked to be buried "on [his] mountain, Chink Peak." Over near Soda Springs are two hills named "Chinese Hat" and "Little Chinese Hat." West of here, near the town of Rockland, is "Mollie's Nipple."
