Homefront Adventures: Eureka

This last weekend Dan did some research and found this crazy cool little town down about an hour south of us he wanted to explore. Well, we're all into exploration around here so we bundled up and headed out! It was so amazing. Eureka is a little mining town that was bustling in the 1920s but is now all but a ghost town. There are some residents but the town center is silent and derelict. We had such a good time exploring around and looking at all the old relics. Be prepared for lots of pictures. 

 Me and a thumb.
Sammy gest his picture taken...
 ...daddy sets up the shot. 

Looking in an old store front. 

 There's an old train car in the middle of town. At first we thought the inside was inaccesible so we climbed around outside. 
 Not so! Someone left the back door open!

It was pretty amazing inside...but I made the boys wash their hands really well when we left. 

 We want to come back again and take a tour of this place. The inside looked creepy beyond belief. 

 Daddy teaches the boys about how old timey washing machines work. 

 The boys had an absolute bast running around and exploring. If the weather had been warmer we would have stayed much longer. 

 My attempt at getting a good pic of Eli and me. 

 Eli reflects on the passage of time. 
Finn and I take a look.
