Part 2 of UP trip

At the top of Pine Mountain.  Walter and Chris kept trying to stick their heads between the slats. Talk about heart attack!

Shaun and Maria

500 steps.  Thats how many Shaun and Maria walked down then back up.

Patrick joined them on their way back up around step 400.

Almost there

Woohoo!  Made it!

Chris and Walter

On our way into the mine.  When we were in it was 38 degrees.  That was because we were 250 ft underground beneath an underground river.  Once we found that out Patrick and Shaun decided it was time to leave.

Outside the mine was more like 95 degrees.
