Our random, yet highly entertaining, romp through the highly visited and less explored parts of life.

Saturday was a beautiful day, and we'd made arrangements earlier in the week to take advantage of it. We had a few friends over for breakfast at 8, then headed out hiking up Baer Canyon. The hike was quite pleasant. I thought Baer Canyon was more cool then Adams Canyon, and with fewer people tromping its trails.
A ways up the canyon, we departed from the trail to find our destination- an old mine. The mine was pretty cool- the tunnel was long, and it was free of graffiti and the other detrius that is so often found in old mines.
The walls had severa places where the mineralization was obviously present in shades of green with flecks of pyrite.
In addition to the minerals, there was a small gathering of crickets in a shallow indentation on one of the walls.
We took some photos and experimented with camera settings to get the best shot. We were having such a good time that we lost track of time and had to leave rather suddenly to make it back to town for other commitments. Rumor has it that there are other tunnels in the area, but we didn't have time to look for them. I'll be back...
