Luck Stone in Centreville 09/29/2009

All these years, I’ve always told myself that one of these days I would stop by this rock quarry and take some pictures.
Today I chased a piece of equipment that was parked here at this facility.  A young man,  named Brad Johnson, took me for a tour in his truck so that I could get some photos.
This quarry is now 300 ft deep and will be dug down another 300 ft before they will close it forever.

This tunnel is just big enough for one of the gigantic Caterpillar truck to go through.  Everyone has to use their two-way radios to announce themselves coming at every turn.  Surprisingly they have never had an accident at this quarry.

That tiny little yellow spot in the middle of the photo above is a giant Caterpillar truck.

This is a picnic and fishing area for the employees.
***************
I haven’t had time for much of anything besides work for the past week.  I’m almost finished with that 69 piece assignment.  Today I went to two more sites to document the last pieces of equipment.  Tomorrow I will spend most of the day organizing the bazillion photos that I took so that my written report will make sense and line up with the photos.
I don’t have any car chases due until Wednesday.  That will give me time to finish this.
