Black Diamond Mines

We went to Black Diamond Mines in Antioch. So cool. This entrance was to the Visitors center. We walked through this big tunnel and looked around the visitor's center.  It was a coal mine first that they converted into a sand mine to make glass. It is kind of in the middle of  nowhere. It was pretty fascinating. 

These were inside of the shafts. There was different small hikes we hiked to in order to see the entrances to the mines. 

Kate, Cooper and I had to wait out the tour because they were too young. It was a 1.5 hour tour in the mine itself with hard hats and all. We hiked to the cemetery while we were waiting. It was really close to our house. We would go again.
