Nice Report.

Nice bike too.

Thanks from a geologist

I remember studying these areas in college years ago. It would be great if mines could be saved for history like so many other sites. They just dont get the respect they deserve. Those old mines grew our country. Good job. BTW my great grandfather died in a coal mine explosion in Trinidad, Colorado. I am trying to find out more about him now that I have more time in my life.
