Rock Quarry

This is the first year that we have been on so many field trips.  It has just turned out that way.  I have to admit (please don't tell the kids) that field trips are far better than a day in our normal routine.

The Rock Quarry

 The rock quarry that we went to has been around for 150 years.  
Amazing!  They are projecting to close it down in 25 more years.

They dig up about 3,000,000 tons of rock each year.

 We loved watching the big machines scope & dig. 

The tour van went over the scales.  Looks like we need to go on a diet.
This company was so generous to us.  They gave us goody bags 
with t-shirts, coozies, foam rocks, helmet flashlights & coloring books.
