Sallie Barber Mine

Judah and I went on a jaunt up to the Breckenridge area yesterday to go on a short hike and then have dinner in Dillon with my uncle and his two friends who are out for some mountain biking.

Judah found our hike online in the morning. An old mine in old gold rush country.

Judah uses his precious-metal-based-machine (iPhone) on top of an old tailings pile.

A spent bedspring.

Judah caught playing with Sonora.

Wow - looks like you found an awesome set for the next indy post-apocalyptic movie!

I *love* taking pictures of old stuff. Or just details of funky structures. Love it!

Two random questions:

Do you miss McMurdo?

Who was Miss McMurdo the year you were there?

Hi Tom,

Yes, I very often miss McMurdo. There are certain sights and *sounds* and smells and feelings that I remember vividly, and I hope to be able to go to experience them again sometime. If I weren't in school right now, I would have been able to go down for a month this season doing what I did before. Bummer.

Miss McMurdo? What's that?
