My last post was about Eureka. I have some leftover pictures from a trip there in 2002 that are just sitting on my hard drive not doing anybody any good. Might as well post them right? What's the point of pictures if you don't blog them? It's like they don't even exist.
Hey what's this thing? I always see it. I don't know what it is. Something about mines probably. Reminds me of Jabba's Palace. There was a day some friends of mine went up there, but I couldn't make it because I slept in. I regret that day.
Somewhere there's a path where you can drive straight up a mountain and find some old mines and camps and shacks and stuff.
I worry that the hills are crawling with hobos. And mountain hobos are way more dangerous than city hobos, because they don't want your money, they want your hide.
I don't think you can tell unless you click on this picture, but someone has spray painted some graffiti on that wall. They went all the way up there, spray paint in hand, in order to write the phrase... "Denver Bronco."
Maybe John Elway did it.
This secret road will take you into town. It's not secret if you know where it is though, or know how to recognize a road when you see one.
The most ineffective local law enforcement agency in all the country!
You've seen the ruin, the broken down police busses, the graves of the miners, the abandoned homes. Behold! The mansion of the fat cat that profited from all this malaise!
Ooh I hate fat cats! With their palaces up on the hill and their nice views!
So! Do you think these fat cats would spend any time with the proletariat, even in death? Of course not!
Last time I mentioned the secret cemetery in the woods. It was for the mine owners families. Actually many of them died in mining accidents. Which is sad.
It's hidden and I don't know how to find it again. It's probably not even hidden or a secret. I bet I could google it. I don't want to though I like mystery.
Legend has it one of the fellas died in the mine and ... something something... haunts the woods looking for his lost shoes. Oooooooh!
