We went to the Bingham Copper pit\mine yesterday and watched the short movie and walked through the museum. It was really neat.

I don't know how (and am not going to worry about figuring out 'cause it really doesn't matter) to change the order of the picures. This is a picture of Cove Fort in central Utah. We took that tour in late July. It was very interesting and way better than I thought it was going to be!

Back view of the copper mine-nearly to Tooele.

Did you know those dump trucks are as big as a house? And each tire costs $25,000 and each truck has six of them? Wow! It was windy too; Jayden is hiding on my shoulder. We heard a big boom, looked over the side and saw dust billowing up, they had just blown up another area! Then we drove through the canyon and looked at the pit from the back. Cool.
