Mica Mine

There is an old mica mine not far from Grand Junction. Aunt Diana invited us to hike it with her and her grandson and a few others. I had never been there before and found it fascinating. The kids loved it as well!

You can see a vein of mica just behind Nicholas. It is soft and flakes. You can easily pull chunks of it off the wall. Nicholas was the most interested in collecting it. He brought home a small baggie full and treasures it.
