jpeg03-12-01-1626.jpg (99495 bytes) Jeremy and the group stop for an explanation of some of the mine's features.
jpeg03-12-01-1627.jpg (107601 bytes) Hans, you're looking pretty studly here!
jpeg03-12-01-1645.jpg (114349 bytes) Reubs listens in while Katie talks with one of our guides about engineering.
jpeg03-12-01-1656.jpg (110272 bytes) Shawn (left), Steve (L center), Kirk (R center), & Al (right).  This is a great shot of you guys!
jpeg03-12-01-1703.jpg (95733 bytes) Reubs and Phil joke about the "sturdy" shoring at this local.
jpeg03-12-01-1705.jpg (114086 bytes) The group makes its way deeper into the workings.
jpeg03-12-01-1719.jpg (75991 bytes) Dave climbs the last few rungs of what's normally an escape ladder.  The ascent was rather steep, and very long.  That little speck of light next to Dave's elbow is another person way below, yet also well up the ladder.

jpeg03-12-01-1722.jpg (68480 bytes)

Here, Reubs poses in the ladderway Dave just emerged from.
jpeg03-12-01-1724.jpg (98256 bytes) The dust in the mine was quite heavy at times as evidenced by the very dirty lens with which this photo was taken.

jpeg03-12-01-1750.jpg (100478 bytes) Reubs after coming out of the mine.  This is one of my favorite pictures from the trip.  Thanks Tina.  You do good work!
jpeg03-12-01-1800.jpg (108841 bytes) Forget "Where's Waldo," where's the bathroom???

Lyman Lake, Arizona
jpeg03-12-01-2339.jpg (59667 bytes) Trying to be cool. Reubs & Dave enjoy an 8-pack of Guinness, and choke down a couple of terrible 50-cent cigars.  As always, the beer was great, but from now on, it's strictly $11.00 cigars!
