Black Diamond Mines

March 21st and April 3rd-4th, 2010

Black Diamond Mines have not been active for many years, and the land that used to support many mines and a few small towns is now set aside as a park. My field trip class went there to study streams, soils, and cemeteries. The first few pictures are from my reconnaissance visit. Wouldn't it be nice if I had time to add some captions?
