Some assorted photos from our time in Breckenridge that didn’t fall into any of the separate albums.
Since Shelby is into geology, we spent plenty of time on short hikes that pass through local historic mines, such as the Sallie Barber Mine and the Minnie Mine. Plenty of opportunities to poke through the ruins and tailings for rocks and minerals of interest.
We were lucky enough to have the Perseid meteor shower while were there, so we headed up to Boreas Pass to get clear of the light pollution from Breckenridge. Once we figured out which direction we needed to look, the meteor shower did not disappoint.

Black Powder Pass
Makes you wonder how it got it’s name…
Shelby poses with the Boreas Pass sign while we wait for the sun to go down for our Perseid meteor shower show. 11,482 feet is quite an altitude difference from Houston!
We spent a while hiking around the Minnie Mine trail, while Shelby looked at the various minerals and rocks.
