the heat has been getting to everyone. it was time to get out of town…and, after leaving town….ride a train down a hole for several hundred feet!
we took a day trip and went on a mine tour! it was 47 degrees F below ground. 100 degrees back home and we had to wear sweatshirts. hurray!
you ride a train down. well…sort of a train. more of a picnic bench on iron wheels.
they bundled us in yellow jackets and gave us helmets and battery packs with 8 hour lights. they explained the history, techniques and lore . . .
OF WHICH I REMEMBER NOTHING!
i was just there for the cold air!
last saturday, over breakfast, we thought about this hair brained day trip. glad we did it. i suggest you follow through with one of your hair brained ideas.
what did YOU do this weekend?
