The writing bug just didn’t bite me today so all’s I have are a few pics from Saturdays drive around the RV Gold Mining area of Stanton Arizona.
IT’S A ROUGH & TUMBLE LANDSCAPE IN THESE HERE PARTS
GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE THE NAME OF AN OLD MINING COMPANY
LOTS OF PRIVATE MINING SITES SCATTERED ABOUT
MANY PRIVATE MINING SITES STAKED OUT IN THIS AREA
ON THIS MOUNTAINSIDE I SPOTTED THE TAILINGS FROM 5 MINE SHAFTS & BELOW ARE THOSE FIVE MINES AS SEEN THROUGH MY TELEPHOTO LENS
ALWAYS AMAZES ME HOW THOSE OLD MINERS WORKED DAY AFTER DAY IN THIS HARD & HARSH UNFORGIVING ENVIRONMENT

TONIGHT’S MOON FROM OUR FRONT PORCH
GROANER’S CORNER:(( When doing my para training with British Airborne we did our first two descents from 800 ft from a static Barrage-balloon with a cage suspended below,(the other six jumps from aircraft). Standing in the door of the cage with no sound except the gentle breeze blowing past and a very long way down, a recruit was heard to ask the R.A.F. Dispatcher, "If the parachute doesn't open, how long will it take me to hit the ground from 800 ft? The dispatcher calmly remarked, "You'll be about halfway through The Lord's Prayer".
