Stepping into the past...

We toured South Pass City where Zane proclaimed, to pretty much anyone and everyone, that everything was “really old”. He was having a grand time looking at all of the old buildings and things inside, when I finally convinced him to walk up the hill to see some mining equipment. Once there it became his all-time-favorite thing! There were rock crushers (medium and super-large) and a mine shaft and, most importantly, MINING CARTS WITH A TRACK!!!!

Seriously, he was so impressed with them that he gave his mom a personal tour once she joined us and then offered to give a complete stranger a tour when she came up the hill. Since then he’s told all of us that we need to buy a mine and have some mining carts.
