Underground 1200ft

This is underground at the west mine. It's pretty cool to watch. I used my phone and it's not the greatest footage but at least people can get an idea of what it's like under there. There are 10 levels of sediments deposit and this is level 5 or in other words the middle level. At the west we are mining levels 5th and 7th. At the east mine we are mining 5th and 10th levels.

This is the stacker that stockpiles the muck and feeds the outgoing muck belt to the hoist so that there is a continuous amount going to the surface to be processed. The west mine, where I work uses a saltwater brine mix and a flotation process to extract the potash.

This is the little piece of heaven where I did the data mining for major component failure.

Voila la Pluie!

Our anniversary is August 4th, so we decided to get out of town this weekend. We went to Cloudcroft, NM and had a blast together. It is such a beautiful area and so green and mossy. We have seen elk both times we have come to camp here.

On Saturday, we were about 45 minutes away from the tent on our 4wheeler and dirt bike when the "the heavens opened up and God looked down and said, I hate you Alfalfa." :) It started dumping on us, so we sat under a tree for a few minutes, but the rain just kept coming down faster so we decided to ride in the storm back to the tent. we were DRENCHED and covered in mud but it was quite the adventure and I was laughing pretty hard the whole time...and shivering.
