Crystal Gold Mine in Idaho

Today we went to the Crystal Gold Mine. We put on hard hats and got to borrow flash lights.

Original beam that is petrifying (640x480)

Then we walked in and they had a large (mining tunnel) hole full of water and they had put rainbow trout in it.

We walked farther and saw stalactites and stalagmites. When we got to the end there was another water pool but had no fish in it.

Then we went gold panning. I found “fools gold” (pyrite) and gems.

Another day, another adventure!
