Thanks Steve! Actually it was in the mid-80s. This is just shy of 5000 feet high (vs 1000 in Phoenix where it was MUCH hotter!)Cool shot! I can feel the heat!:smile:
Mine all mine Bill! :Wink:Yours? Oh, mine. lol Quite an impressive structure on the hill. Love to see some close-in
pics of that. Wonder what all those fences mean...
Thanks Clayton!I like this one alot. It draws you in, especially that structure on the hill. Great shot.
Right on both accounts John. The fence is around the State Park, which is closed by the economy, but it contains several shaft mines (as opposed to pit mines.) I wasn't sure what it was called, so I googled "Little Daisy Jerome" and here is the street view it gave me:Very nice. Isn't that the Little Daisy Hotel? There are a lot of old mine shafts in the area, so I'm thinking the fences are there to discourage "exploring."
That is exactly why the fences are there. The woman I was with kept saying "Lets go into a mine!" so I told her the story of a classmate in high school (many, many years ago) who died in an old mine that collapsed. While I really enjoy caving - I won't step foot into a mine shaft! The thought of rotted timbers holding up a mountain brings out my claustrophobia!I'm think the fences are put there to climb:biggrin: Nice panorama.
I like those last 2. We were there in 1974 and noticed that most of the residents were hippies, too.Once again I'm shooting through a window there Tim! Jerome is pretty much a tourist town now. Thirty years ago, it was almost a commune - nobody but hippies and camp counselors (same/same) went there.
