Standing on top at the mine looking down at the valley below.
These rocks have Iron Pirite in them.
Well my week is almost over. I don't really know if I got the rest I needed, but I know the different views were well worth the trip. Today we set out to explore the Iron Pyrite ( Hope I spelled it correct?) This rock looks like gold but its really Iron and the mine we went to has it all over the ground for anyone to pick up, so we loaded up the truck with some nice size boulders, then hubby said that was enough because its weighting down the truck, bummer! I could of kept putting more and more in. I also found a rock that looks like amethyst, I think it was the real treasure because it was the only one up there. Since I love purple I had to have it. After we were done there we headed down the mountain to the Charcoal Ovens, these date back to 1870's there were 6 of them. Very interesting to see. Tonight we were lucky enough to watch the fireworks from Ely at our campsite. A nice way to end this real windy and nice day. I will be going home tomorrow. Hope you all have had a nice 4th. And remember that GOD loves us all!
