So Fourth of July weekend it was up to Osceola Mills, PA for some family fun, ATV riding, antique brick collecting, and treasure hunting.
Then it was off to this gem of a place where there wasn't much in the way of bricks, but it just begged to be explored.
I was a bit worried the roof would fall on top of me, so I didn't venture inside but got this closer picture from the outside.
The old outhouse looks like it will be better explored in the winter when no rattlesnakes will be hiding in the tall grass.
Here's what a side cut looks like of where it's been strip mined (taken in the "Little Rascals" quarry).
Me with our brand new metal detector. This thing worked way better than the previous model circa 1974. We found nails, old pipes, hooks, and pieces of rail used by mining cars (taken outside an old coal mine).
I opted against posting a picture of what we found in the freezer. Any guesses?
Hope you guys have a great week!
