Empire Mine

For quite some time i have wanted to visit Empire Mine. I have been there before, but it has been awhile. My ancestors worked there when they settled in Grass Valley, CA…plus it’s BEAUTIFUL…so I wanted to visit. My hair girl…(hair dresser?) wanted to take pictures of her little girl and she was willing to drive so we went up there. Amazing! I wish I took more pictures of the grounds…oh well! Here are a few I snapped of Shaun and Preston…and a few other random ones.

Here we are waiting for the park to open…

And Shaun waiting…with his amazing mustache. It’s gone now…but doesn’t he look handsome? ‘Stache and all :)


We took pictures of this little girl in the window sill and Preston wanted to get up there SO bad…he was pretty excited when he got his turn.


Here’s a family photo at the home of the mine owner (No one lives in it now…)


And Preston and I down in the mine.


It was a fun and very relaxing place to visit. If you are in Grass Valley, go!
