Part of the new walking/bike trail
Some of the improvements that were done to the road...boy oh boy did it ever need improving.
ok, I'm not sure exactly when but the Orphan mine will be taken down soon.
I don't think I have ever seen the old mine as good as I did today. But it's very visible from the new "Powell Memorial" bus stop. I was more impressed with the mine then I was with someone silly idea of a memorial to Powell.
Here is the Powell Memorial. Now does this hunk of cement/stone/whatever give you a sense of what Powell did or was? Sorry but someone wasted alot of time & money on this. I overheard 1 guest wonder if it was for Colin Powell...like WTF! I wanted to smack him across the head for being so dumb. But then again...how is anyone supposed to know what/who this memorial is for. I mean, not every guest goes to see the movie at IMAX.
I don't really remember what was written on the memorial, but still nothing all that great...nothing about Powell's fearless adventour or his wonder for life.
Even though I was on the Hermits Road for 2 & 1/2 hours yesterday, I didn't get to see everything I wanted. And seeing as the buses won't be going down this road again until March I guess I will have to walk down on a day off.
