Today we made a trek to the Gold Bug Mine in Placerville, CA.
We are trying to do a few different things while our son Mark and
Granddaughter Samantha are here visiting.
The ceiling was so low in spots that we definitely needed the hard hats.
A nice volunteer took our photo before we entered the mine.
We were able to take the self guided tour and listen to the info on Mark's cell phone.
Since the temperature was 104F. outside being in the mine felt super good and cool.
I liked this painting on the wall of the patio.
Mr. Studebaker ,of car fame, got his start by selling wheelbarrows to the miners.
He then funneled the money into the car business.
Hard Rock mining is such hard, dirty work.
