We have always enjoyed a Sunday drive. Especially when the weather is getting cooler and the windows can be rolled down. I'm not sure about other cities but in Salt Lake, Sunday's are really mellow. Less traffic, more quiet. It is very nice. Perfect for driving around. It was Stake conference today so we opted out. We ended up on the south end of the valley. Looked at a lot of houses. It is amazing how much more house you can get for your money out there. Probably because the commute would be horrendous if you worked downtown. The gas is even cheaper out there. (its really not that far away actually, only about a 10 minute drive....) While we were out there, we decided to drive up the Bingham Copper Mine. If my memory serves me right, it is the largest producing copper mine in the world. It is actually 4000 feet deep and can be seen from space ....and, it is in the family, sortof. Thats right, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather Erastus Bingham settled the area that is known as Bingham Canyon and actually was the first to discover the metal while grazing his cattle in the hills. At the time however, he was instructed to concentrate on cattle instead and so another man ended up starting the mining process....unfortunately that didnt get us out of paying the fee they charge to drive to the top of it for a look. We didnt bring any cash though and couldnt drive to the top. We promised our disappointed children that we will come back again....the view is incredible from up there. We felt we owed them some sort of entertainment at that point and found a nice park to play in for a bit......of course I took pictures. It was a nice day and we are winding down now and gearing up for another busy week.
