Finally on our last day we walked the two blocks to the viewing center and boy was it cool. If you look closely on the snowy side, there is a fence four 'rows' up - no way would I be caught walking there!
I am still stumped as to the purpose of the mysterious pink item observed deep in the mine. (See photo below.) Ideas? It sure looks like a ticket booth to me, but that's just ridiculous.
Wishing you a view of something unusual.
