4th of July in Silverton part 2

The next morning we got up ate breakfast then loaded up to go jeeping. We got a little ways up and it stated raing.Travis didn't have his top on. so he and the girls got a little damp.


There are so many old mines and shafts.

This one they are fixing up.

They have the mine closed up in the back . See how yellow the rocks are in the water, from all the minrals.

We had to get inside to get out of the hail strom.

Drove for a while more then we
 stopped for lunch.

The water in all the lakes is so clear, you can almost see the bottom. See the jeeps in teh bottom right hand that kind of shows how far up we were from the lake

This kind of shows how steep some of teh roads were. Although the two passes we went on last year were way worst in fact I got out and walked a coulple times last year.

It is so pretty up here.

we were almost 13,000 feet it was a little chilly there was snow in a few places.

Part of an old ghost town.

You can't see it very well in this picture but therse seveal old mins down there.

IT's almost like being on top of the world.

this is in pretty good shape.

And this would be the bathroom That I got locked in. Every one thought it was very funny (I didn't) I went in and locked the door well got ready to leave it would not unlock. It is a very unsettling feeling to be locked in the outhouse many miles away from anything.They finally got it unlocked and the first thing my dad asked me was why did you lock it. It is just habit to lock the out house lol  

Heaed back into town.

Almost every where you look there are old mines.

We got back to camp and we loaded up and went back home Andy wanted to go down to the river to play music. I will have more about that in part 3.
