Gold Mine Trail.....Searching for the Gold!!!😊
Silvertop did you find the Gold mines???😯
My @actifit adventure today was also a return to somewhat normalcy!
Our good friend and neighbor Jan joined us in our search today!
The trails can be very narrow, and we are social distancing, so we all carried our mask for when we would meet people.
Today we passed three different groups of hikers, and it’s a work week Tuesday.
The plan was to do the full loop, my FitBit showed 7.61 miles, and we hit 100 uphill floors!
Well I did..........😅
Halfway up the mountain, at a crossroad called Coco Crossroads, you can take a different trail to the Gold mines!
Just as we approached the crossing, down hill by Haden creek, I spotted one of the three Gold mines!
It was a difficult decent down, so the Mrs and Jan stayed back up on the main trail.
Much of the entrance has filled in, over the last 120 years, but it was exciting to have found the first of three Gold Mines!!!🤗
As we searched for the next mine, I told the Ladies to let me go ahead up an extremely steep an narrow trail.
How does Silvertop get into these situations.... 😇
This trail was loose gravel on a one shoe wide HIGH cliff!!!
Going forward wasn’t too bad, turning around and hanging onto small trees to pull myself along the trail........
Are your hands sweating yet!😳
I was so glad to get back down, and very glad I told them to let me check this trail out!🥵
We continued onward an finished the main hiking loop.
One Gold mine found today, a very exciting day, and also so nice that we can get back to hiking with our friend Jan!
Till tomorrow Silvertop Mike😊
