An abandoned Uranium Mine dating back to 1949.  Be aware of radon gas, radiation, bats and Rabies. The entrance was almost totally caved in.  There was a small opening between the crashed timbers to allow for a body to squeeze through and get inside the mine.  The air at the entrance was extremely stale and misty.  Once inside, the adit opens up and is actually quite clean and because it was a former tourist attraction in the 1960's and early 1970's, the ground is nicely cemented to walk on.  A very straight and flat adit going in more than 1000 feet.  We went to the end.
