We next drove northeast of Angels Camp to what remains of the town of Vallecito. We were searching for the old Wells Fargo building and the Cuneo building. We found two ruins with iron doors, but we were unable to determine which is which. The buildings in Vallecito were made of rhyolite tuff from the Altaville Rhyolite Tuff Quarry.
