Alice - Gold was found here in the 1880's in the valley below St. Mary's glacier. Alice was one of many camps on the Fall River that boomed and died just as quickly. About $50,000 was taken out of the mines in the first few months and by 1889, the town and mines closed. There are still ruins of the cabins scattered among the pines and the area is one of the few where there is enough snow to permit year round skiing.

Alma - Alma was home to much silver in the late 1800's. There is some discrepancy as to the origin of the name Alma, but needless to say, there were many people of the same name in this city. One of the most notable events that happened in Alma was the day some Mexican drove a flock of sheep into nearby Bucksin Joe. One of them came down with small pox and dyed shortly thereafter.
