Bingham Copper Mine - 2 pg layout

Getting pages done and enjoying the process!

Here is a 2 page layout about our summer field trip to the Bingham Copper Mine for my son's album. This place is amazing! It is one of 2 man-made structures that can be seen from outer space. (the other one is the great wall of China.)

If you are ever in the Salt Lake area it is worth a trip up Bingham Canyon to see this!

Journaling reads:
Kennecott's Bingham Canyon Mine has produced more copper than any mine in history -- about 17 million tons.

The mine is 2-1/2 miles across at the top and 3/4 of a mile deep. You could stack two Sears Towers on top of each other and still not reach the top of the mine.

The mine is so big, it can be seen by the space shuttle astronauts as they pass over the United States.

Field Trip to the Copper Mine
It seems like you can learn so much by simply visiting a new place. The copper mine was so amazing and although it scared you a little at first, you enjoyed the experience. There was a lot to learn about in the visitor’s center and the short film about mining was very interesting. You were most excited about the gift shop and making a stretched penny for your collection. What a wonderfully educational way to spend a summer day with your mom and sister.

I also posted the layout on 2Peas

Happy Scrapping!
