Queen Mine Tours, Bisbee, AZ

Today’s adventure took Chris and I to Queen Mine in Bisbee, about 40 miles south of St David on AZ 80. We had a great day and enjoyed more sunshine as we drove. Queen Mine hasn’t been operational since 1975, but one certainly gets a good idea of how important this copper mine was to the town of Bisbee.

Chris Leaving the Mine

The tour was awesome. We were each outfitted with slickers, helmets, lanterns before joining about a dozen other visitors on the tram into the mine. I took quite a few photos inside the mine at 52800 ISO and was surprised how well they turned out after a little noise reduction.
