The last part of break we finally visited the mountains. We’d been wanting to go for some time. Mom and Dad came into town to join us – we drove to Cripple Creek for the day and enjoyed touring the Mollie Kathleen Mine. So worth our time – it was great.
We also visited the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mine – so fascinating to see those massive trucks hauling so much rock. The lookout is actually the bed of one of the dump trucks they use. If you look very closely you can see the trucks in one of the photos – they look so tiny!
And we played lots of cards…Pa taught Anna how to play Solitaire, and the kids are really getting pretty good at Euchre!
James’s new past time!
