... Pit Mine. Went there and saw mine from observation deck. Anaconda Company had underground mines in area for years and then started the open pit mine in 1955. It operated until 1982. In 1983 they shut down the underground mine pumps and bottom is filled with 41 billion gallons of water. Pit measures 7,000 by 5,600 feet. Very impressive.

We had had rain through the night, and we guess it must have been cold enough for snow on the mountain tops. It was only 8 degrees when we started out, but got up to the mid twenties by the time we reached our campsite at Basin, Montana (just north of Butte, Montana for anyone looking at the map).
