Mile 76: Hey Joe Canyon and the Hey Joe uranium mine. There's random equipment left over from the mining days of the 1950's. Other than being a little shot-up and out of style, the junk didn't look 50+ years old to me. If I'd put this bulldozer in my compost pile on the Oregon coast, I'd have iron-rich compost the following spring.

Hey Joe Canyon is the end of a 4WD excursion from a campground on the rim. It's about 24 miles to here. I met up with some 4-wheelers and they gave me a ride up the canyon to the mine. Fun!

This is the only opening into the mine that I saw. It's just big enough to crawl into. No thanks.

My new 4-wheel friends. They had cold beer, too.
