San Juan Independence Weekend | Sunday

Sunday, July 6, 2008

Sunday morning I finally met up with Alex and our goal was to check out the Red Mountain Mining District before heading home.

One of our first stops was the Yankee Girl

We completed the north section of the Red Mountain Mining District and started on the south section, however we were quickly stopped by some snow drifts and decided to turn around and head for home….after some winching, cutting, and shoveling.

It was a good weekend, and we are both looking forward to heading back out there in a few weeks 🙂
