We drove to Wickenburg to see Vulture mines today, after stopping at the chamber to get directions we were disappointed to find out it is not opening maybe until October. Very unfortunate we didn't see that on the website.

We had the best time ever on the tour today! So many stories of the past at the mine with old photos to go along with. Finding out about the old equipment and how it was used was very interesting.
