Bingham Canyon Mine

You'd think that if my children went to the world's largest copper mine which is one of the only man-mad items visible from space, they'd come back impressed by the scale of the hole and wanting to tell me all about it.  You know what they were excited about?  Pressed pennies.  Grandpa has a collection of them, so they were all too eager to get to try what are usually the off-limits machines.  So instead of hearing about the giant hole, the huge machinery, the amazing scale of it all, I saw it on a smashed penny.

Thank goodness my mom was there to point out some of the more important stuff!

Claire and I stayed home for nap time, so no pictures from us today.
