Pretty nice sunrise this morning. I did a little cleaning around the bus this morning then took a drive over east of Bouse to the old mine site at Swansea. The roads were good getting there although mostly gravel. You go through a couple of different types of eco-systems from a dune type desert, called the Crescent Dunes where the vegetation is very sparse, until just before you reach Swansea you are dropping through more mountainous terrain that borders the Bill Williams River. I have come to the conclusion that the best way to save money on mine reclamation down here is call it a historic site and give it to the government.
