well decided to take the wife to the mines....

i use to go there with the fam as a kid run around the mine play on the old equipment...........(which now sits indoors in the museum,but sat in the gravel pit next to the mine for many years)..
was fun to dig in the tailings piles n look for nice core samples to take home...

have gone very far into the mines as a kid
probably not the best idea we had but it made for great memories of adventure

never been since it became a mining museum....

no as much fun as it was exploring many years ago..
but still neat..
we got kicked out(asked to leave)
because i took her to some of the spots i remember as a kid..
(i guess they dont want u in those spots anymore :dontknow: :D )
but we were done anyways[36]


couple shots in no particular order........
.and the red circled objects on the chief are crazy fuckers climbin it...

that basket stretcher in the ambulance car does not look like fun

looks like you were out on the spit - was there any people crazy enough to kite surf while you where out there?

It's a fun place to go and check out. We did it years ago and to make it worth the drive hit the train museum. Wonder how much gold there is to be found in the waters off the mine ?
