This weekend, we hiked back to the Adelmann Mine tucked away in the foothills. I have attempted to do some research on the mine, but there isn’t much online about it (kind of strange for someone in my generation- I’m so used to being able to google anything). The mine looked like something out of an Indiana Jones movie! It was neat to see the history around Boise.
In the gallery below, there is a picture of the rock slide where it is evident the mine was blown shut. There were boards between the rocks, which were probably part of the door. It was really cool to see the evidence of a working mine back in the day!
