... who took the tour was from a family that owned one of the other mines
in town so he was very knowledgeable. We were the last tour of the day
and it was just the 5 of us making it a fun, private tour. I am 5 foot 4 inches and that would've been tall for a miner. Most were well under that and when you see some of the small spaces they had to work in, you an understand why small is better for this job.
back to Truckee for the night sleeping well after a busy day.

She was returned to Carson City in 1967, and converted to a much slower electric drive. She struck Nevada Bicentennial medals in gold, silver, copper and bronze in 1976, and in following years has created some of the medalic ...
