The mine entrance is rather small. We were allowed in about 25 feet where this man-truck was waiting for miners to jump in for the fast ride to the bottom. I thought this one was at a sharp angle ......
Another loaded man-truck going almost straight down the shaft. What an "E" ticket ride that must have been. These guys are practically sitting on each others shoulders!!!
Here is the actual mine shaft. At the bottom of the mines mules were used to pull the ore cars to a central location, where they were dumped into larger cars and pulled out this hole.
After a great picnic of Cornish Pasties (pronounced Past-ees), similar to what the local miners ate every day, we stopped by a second museum with many interesting pieces of equipment, including a refurbished dynamite stuffing machine. Now THAT must have been an exciting job!!
Next up ... the town of Colfax!!
