I don’t have as much time to adventure on weekdays anymore, so I’ve been creating my own little mini adventures 5 minutes away. I headed up to check out the mine I spotted on my prior hike this week. Surprisingly, there was a pretty decent path heading up there. The mine was huge and very interesting. There was a date (July 30, 1917) on a foundation area next to the mine. Past the mine, the faint path continued and headed right up to a mini peak that I’ve enjoyed chips n salsa on before! I decided to head up to the other mini peak above that one and it had a great view. I did see spray paint {explicit} up there and that wasn’t cool...don’t bring your kids! It was way too windy on that peak to watch sunset, so I started heading down and passed the other mine on the way back. The skies were amazing, and I was away from the masses and very content. I found my next target, which is a numbered peak above the other two. Gotta love finding new things to see in your backyard.
