With a forecast for the first summer heat wave coming up this weekend we decided to squeeze in a one night trip out to Murphy's Point where we could keep ourselves immersed in water. It turned out to be a great call as the temperature soared into the 40's with the humidex.
We opted to keep the trip simple and brought only a tent, some floating chairs (my awesome Father's Day gift), some BBQ ribs, and lots of fluids.
Friday evening we signed up along with 83 others for the Silver Queen Mine tour. We learned a little about the geological history of the region, about the Lally homestead once located here, and of course about mining mica, feldspar, and apatite (not a fun job by the way). A great piece of local history if you ever get the chance to take the tour yourself.
Nice helmet eh. I think my head is too big to be a miner.
