Eureka! Mini Holiday
We are on our last day of spring holiday and it has been a fun trip.
Fancy holidays are not our families thing.
We enjoy National Parks and Geocaching are way through them.
Our first stop was to Eureka, UT.
It was once a booming mine town ( late 1800's to 1950's ) but is now a virtual ghost town.
Eureka was mined for gold, copper and lead.
The population of Eureka is 766 people and rises to an elevation of 6430'.
There are still mining sites to explore and fun rock hunting but Kennecott (Rio Tinto) is quietly buying up land.
