We went out exploring near Charouleau Gap yesterday and wanted to share a neat discovery. We found a cool old (relative) mining site that wasn't on any map. Here's some pictures of the place:

Lot's of stonework


It looked like the place was run until the 60's or 70's?? The road (term used loosely) to get out there was overgrown and it didn't appear had been traveled for years. High-clearance 4WD required, not for the timid or inexperienced. I hope to post more information on this place (I am trying to find out more history on it) to my website soon.

Nice find there. I hadn't heard of this before, did you find the mine itself? You really find some obscure places.

Looks like the Oracle area is becoming an active mining area again with the opening of the Oracle Ridge mining property & others, hiring some 200 underground miners now.

Vulture,

Yes, we found a few mines in the area. There's some really cool stuff out there waiting to be found!

This is so neat! I grew up in oracle and have seen some of the hidden gems around the area.

I haven't been able to find any more info on the site. We went back there in November and found a few more places including an old pump house, well, stone bridge abutments (bridge is gone) and dump.

ゴルフはゴルフ場でするスポーツ。だが、ゴルフをするにはまず「打てる」ようになる必要がある。だから最初 はゴルフ場ではなく、ゴルフ練習場に行こう。大抵クラブはレンタルできるので、 激安ゴルフクラブ (http://www.golfjp365.com/)グローブ(手袋)を用意すればOK。友人や家族などゴルフをやっている人に連れていってもらい、試しに打 ってみて「楽しそう!」と思ったらスクールに入ろう。

 
「最初に基礎をプロのコーチについて習うと上達が格段に早い」とアドバイスしてくれたのはブリヂストンで女 性用クラブの開発に携わる土居朋枝さん。ツーサムゴルフスタジオの松井丈コーチも「やはり最初が肝心。最初 の一振りでクセがつくという研究結果もある」と言う。スクールに入れば初心者仲間もできる。


スクールに通い始めたら早い段階でクラブを揃えたい。ものによって打った感じが違うので、マイクラブで練習 して慣れておこう。
