3rd level of the Kelly Mine

Kelly Mine, Magdalena, Magdalena District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA

Herr Doktor Klaus Fuhrberger, from the Schneeberg Institute fur Mining und Technology, is on the 3rd level of the Kelly Mine, investigating the little understood procreation of "Peeps". Herr Doktor states that the shy little creatures beget their young underground, and due to a lack of eggshells, that they produce offspring similarly to mammals. Herr Doktor further states that Peeps hibernate underground for most of the year, venturing onto the surface for a short period in springtime, most prolifically during Easter.
March 25, 1969 (?) by an anonymous photographer.

View outside of the Vindicator Mine.

Vindicator group, Cuchillo Negro District, Sierra Cuchillo, Sierra Co., New Mexico, USA

The Vindicator Mine adit is to the right. The eroded trail to get to the mine is sometimes on a sidehill cut, and it can be treacherous, sometimes having a pretty serious tip. A little more erosion and, without repair, the trail may become impassable. It was scary in 2018.
