The First Publicized Public Open House Weekend

The weekend of June 18th-19th was our second public weekend but the first to be publicized in the local newspaper, local television, and online. We were expecting big numbers and we got them… at least for the Saturday. Unfortunately the rain made Sunday a no-work day in the field. With just the one day we still got over 100 visitors and we were pretty happy with that. The next weekend would more than triple that, though.

Anyway, I thought I’d just post some pics of that Saturday and earlier that week so you could pretend you were there too.

Volunteer, Jessica, working diligently in 101.T4. Is that a snake or an unfortunate shadow of a digi camera I see?

Even the wiener dogs go wild for Cliff archaeology!

Gary, Nick, and Eric drawing 108.T9. They kept telling me they had a good working dynamic.

Meghan chatting up a couple visitors from Ontonagon County. The one on the left once worked at the White Pine mine and mill back in the day.

Lots'a folks milling about the mill (no pun intended).
