    A beautifal place to setup your jaw crusher.

    Took this as I was leaving a mine-site in the San Juan's of Colorado a week ago. I was thinking, man I wouldn't mind overseeing that crusher with all that wonderful scenery all around, under this gorgeous high altitude sky. Some mining jobs do have some perks at certain times of the year that is. I worked above timberline at a mine long ago, so come winter, it really ain't all that pleasant during that time of the year. I thought about putting a note in the suggestion box saying it would be better if we moved the mine to Florida, because of all the problems that come along during the freezing cold winter.

    That's a great picture. We went to the San Juans a couple weeks ago. I sure wish some of the bigger mines were going full bore, we would seriously consider moving there.

    Snow is on it's way tomorrow and if it's anything like last winter it won't stop till June. Woo Hoo first time this fall setting the alarm clock 1/2 an hour early to check traffic/ traction laws.

    Well, this place is just about to begin in about two weeks and they'll be looking for help, ya won't be running some high tech Swedish machine, but an American made jackleg instead. I think it was maybe 15+ years ago now I sold some jackleg parts to the mine your at. They were doing some small cut-outs. After that the function of the handheld machine is now banned from use on the property. I worked at the other mine up on Fremont when it was underground. When they sold off the equipment in an auction the jacklegs were won by a scrap dealer who hauled them away in several dump truck loads.
