So D-ass and I decided to get motivated and headed out to Carolin Mine last Sunday afternoon... it rained, then it stopped, then it started snowing higher up... Here's a few pics of our random adventure:

this is Ned, the Carolin Mine Mini Snowman, he chose to catch a ride down the mountain, and later realised he couldnt take it, he ended up jumping and getting run over

awesome pics[36] .........boy have they ever cleaned that place up

11-10-2010, 02:48 PM
so you didn't find the mine then?

11-10-2010, 03:53 PM
Poor Ned. Looks like snow wheeling is just around the corner.[36]

11-10-2010, 04:06 PM
so you didn't find the mine then?

Looked like a fun day out [36]
Those doors apparently lead into the lower levels of the mines Kev not the upper ones that we have been into before. They were always locked before looks like someone forced them open.

11-10-2010, 05:14 PM
nice pics ash , no wheeling down the mine????

11-10-2010, 05:34 PM
we went to the entrance of 2 of the mines but it was really dark and our flashlights werent bright enough, the one looks like it leads upwards... it got pretty dark out pretty fast and we were by ourselves so we didnt do much more exploring after dark... theres still alot of trails that we didnt go down yet... but it was an awesome day for sure... loved hitting the snow its a nice change from all the rain... i didnt want to go into the mine when it was that dark lol, id freak out

11-10-2010, 05:53 PM
