This was an unplanned side trip and an interesting one to say the least. It's very rich in history, a lot of antique mine equipment, vintage trucks, and animals. I believe the local population is (2). The museum is a must see.

Spent 3+ hours walking the grounds and snapping pictures. The vintage vehicles, tools, etc. are in great condition and displayed so you can sit in and pick up. We had so much fun.

It's a very narrow road to get there with steep grades and hairpin-type turns.

I would be very careful if I took my pet. There are donkeys, chickens and other animals "free ranging" the area.
