The other day Will and I decided to drive 3.5 hours south of Phoenix to Bisbee, AZ after a family friend told us about the really neat mine tour down there. We thought it sounded pretty fun, would make a great little day trip, and would be a great way to test out the new camera. *Edit: people have been asking about the camera: it's a Canon 6D). Bisbee is an old mining town turned to a little artisin community, with lots of cute little cafes and antique shops.
There were stairs that just took you up the side of a mountain. I'm not going to lie, by the time we got to the top of them I was feeling it in my poor legs (I think that might be a sign I need to hit the gym a lot more, haha!) The stairs went to the back yards of a lot of houses, it is one of the ways people use to get down onto the main street quickly.
This was in someones back yard. We weren't being creepers I swear, you could look in as you were walking up the stairs and it was too pretty not to take a picture. I love how the house has a little walk way from the third story to the seating area. I would love to have something like this in my backyard. Maybe one day.
I have to admit this is probably the coolest looking high school building I have ever seen. I really wish we could have gone inside to see what it looked like.
We would have loved to explore a little more, but it was so darn cold! I looked up the weather the night before and it said it was going to be high 50s, but it ended up being extremely windy and more like high 30s, brrrr! I guess next time I will make sure to check the weather before we leave in the morning hehe. But we still had a great time, and Will put together this great little video of our adventures!
Have you guys ever done a mine or cave tour? If so how'd you like it?
I hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday!
