Found a little snow to play in today. The day started out sunny, clear blue skys, then the fog rolled in. Still a great day to get out and play in the snow!


Good thing we dressed the same as sleddin today, I had the pleasure (?) of breaking trail through the alders!:D

We hiked down to this old shack I saw a couple weeks ago, was an old mine at one time, but not much left now.

Another old mine that we had hiked down to last weekend. No quad access anymore, and probably a good thing 'cause there is still some nice old stuff there! I counted 8 ore carts, lots of wheels/axles, a few old dynamite boxes, an old blacksmith forge and lots of other cool things!

Met up with the owner of most of the mines up Sheep Ck at the Nugget mine. Cool guy, knows everything about the area. He's been working the mines (that have been in his families name for 70+ years) since he was a teenager!

On the way down we checked out a mine we enjoy exploring. Wandered down an adit we that we have never checked out, but had to turn around at about 2000' in 'cause the flashlight rechargables were getting low! I had a spare battery, but don't want to rely on that to keep going AND come back out! Will come back with a few spares next time.

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
