|"I say we tackle him."|
We interrupt this silliness for some
----- Scenery -----
|"Hey! Who Goes There On My Bridge!?"|
|"It is I, Billy Goat Gruff"|
But, no, actually, in case you couldn't tell, this is a Colorado Boy.
This is his trail.
This justified the day as an actual bona fide homeschool field trip.
History class -- CHECK!
|Looking down the mineshaft... inside the remarkably preserved head frame building.|
|This structure did not fare as well. Wonder what it used to be?|
|On a pinewood trail. The clean, invigorating scent of pine needles. Ahh!|
|Inside one of the ghost houses in the ghost town of Ironton, a favorite "haunt"|
of ours in the fall. (These are not ghosts pictured here. I don't think.)
|Thank you so much for joining us on the trail! |
This is the end of the slide show for today.
Come back later. There will be more for sure!
