Road Trip!

Hey guys!

So the highlight of our Fall Break was a road trip to a really cool mining town several hours south of us. 

Here's what we did:

The drive there was super pretty.

We made it!  The whole town is built into the hills around the former mine. 

We visited the local history and mineral museum. 

What a beautiful old building!  The museum is housed in the former mine offices. 

We had lunch at a Mexican place recommended by one of Hubby's coworkers. I had spinach and mushroom enchiladas with pumpkin seed crema. 

We did a lot of sightseeing. Here's one of the oldest hotels in the state:

Ahoy, matey!

This is... Well, I'm not really sure, but it was set up in a vacant lot. Some sort of art statement??

We also had dinner before heading back at a little cafe recommended by one of my friends. Hubby got the gnocchi with butternut squash and I had artichoke lasagna. Yum!

I still have the second half of this waiting in the fridge for a delicious leftover lunch. 

The whole trip was so much fun!
