Hindsight is 2020

Who could have ever imagined that at the beginning of 2020, we would be rethinking the phrase “hindsight is 2020”? Seriously, this past year has been some of the scariest and strangest times of our lives, that I’m beginning to believe our hindsight may need a new pair of glasses.

Although the world has seen it’s fair share of tragedy, anxiety, and utter strangeness, it has also produced some great memories. As we were laid off from a job we so enjoyed, it made us appreciate what we had. To take the time to go see & visit the things we had planned on down the road. Nothing was holding us back. This is also when we decided to share our journey with others and start our channel.

In retrospect, 2020 was a great year because of its challenges. Challenges give us the opportunity to adapt; to become stronger; to learn and grow as individuals and as a country. 2020 challenged us as a couple but we emerged from challenges stronger than ever before. I’m so excited for what we’ll do together in 2021.

Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine

Great Tour & Experience

The Mollie Kathleen Mine tour was a fantastic experience. It was entertaining and educational. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. She was able to answer all of our questions.

The tour was 1 hour long. We descended 1000 feet underground into the mine shaft. We were crammed into a tiny cart for the descent. Once we exited the cart, the mine itself was very roomy. Along the tour, the guide not only explained how mining progresses but she also was able to demonstrate how different equipment and techniques were used. This part was loud. Cover you ears! In the middle of the tour we rode a short tram. At the end of the tour the guide gave us a history lesson about mining in the area.

Overall, I highly recommend this for anyone. We paid $25 per adult and believe it’s well worth it.

Tips:
The ground can be slippery. Wear good shoes.
The temperature underground is very cool so bring a light jacket.
The equipment demonstrated is very loud so bring ear protection it you have sensitive ears.
They provide hard hats at the beginning of the tour.
