BLOODY CANYON/LAUREL LAKES
We have been up here before (click here to see the pic of Jami and Ed when we were here in November 1995) but we had never gone and checked out the mine before.
So one day Cat was bored and piled us all into the Godzuki and off we went. I ran ahead of the car almost the entire way there and back!
It was wierd, we only saw HUGE trucks up there besides ourselves! Which is strange because Cat looked a little green in a couple of spots where the road was REALLY narrow and had a sheer cliff on the other side!
The mine itself is a little hike on a really bad trail but it was cool once we got up there!
The mine is HUGE! It looks like they used to drive trucks inside it, its that big! Plus, the views from the mine were spectacular! Definitely worth it!
HERE IS A PIC TAKEN FROM INSIDE THE MINE AND ONE OF A SHACK THAT'S DISAPPEARING UNDER AN AVALANCHE OF SHALE
HERE I AM AT THE MINE ENTRANCE
HERE IS AN ANCIENT ENGINE STILL HALF BURIED IN SNOW
