    I love all those pictures of the caves, and it looks like the mine is still active?

    I also enjoyed seeing some of the photos in black and white, it makes old stuff look even older.

    In one of the pictures, it looks like maybe someone lost a warhead off a missle? How much do you want for it ? I'll pay more if its nuclear.

    I think it's a "space capsule" I saw one like it once on another site.



    Awesome pics, thanks Drifter.

    Thanks Guys! glad you enjoyed the pictures. I can't wait to get the trip report and the individual site descriptions up on my web site. Actually those space capsule looking things are the tops to some silo's that were located around the ore processing plant located just opposite the mine. The mine in this case was talc, so it may have something to do with processing that type of material?

    If it were a nuke I would have already mailed it to Hillary and Bill!

    Maybe I should visit the mine after all. Sometimes I get a little chafing here and there.
