We'd seen plenty of apple pies and souvenirs. It was now time to check out a mine. Most inactive mines are dangerous and should be avoided. The Eagle Mine, on the other hand, is open for tours. Our tour started with a bit of gold panning. It's painstaking work. The gold flakes are miniscule: small as a grain of sand, or even smaller. The Eagle Mine is within walking distance from Main street. You can walk if you choose, but there's a parking lot at the mine, too.
