My entire family — all six of us — took a field trip today. To the center of the earth. OK, about 425 ft below surface.
Before we went, I snapped a few things from the tent.
We couldn’t go last time this tour was offered because the minimum age is 10, and ‘i’ of gain wouldn’t have been able to go. About 40 employees from other mines came to help run the 6 bus tour for the public. An ENORMOUS tent with many employees and volunteers from other groups helped educate us about the mine, mining and careers, geology, and the Manson impact. WHO Radio, Martin Marietta, and all limestone producers definitely got our attention today.
