My question is which do I go by. I photographed both today but what name do I go by to upload the photos?

I know I am in my own little world, but everyone knows me here.

Bell Hill didn't have a lat/long listed (now updated). The Blue Hill you listed was in Wyoming, not in the Spor Mountain area.

I am glad you could figure out what I was trying to say, when I used the Wyoming Bell Hill mine instead of the Utah one. Thanks for fixing that. I was confused as to why it was in a different place that what the topo maps showed.
