Kennecott Copper Mine

October 4, 2019

Today we started off meeting our son Neil and his wife Laura for breakfast at Ruth’s Diner on Emancipation Canyon Road. This has been one of our favorite diner’s that we have visited on many of our trips to visit Neil in Salt Lake City. In the summer months they have outdoor dining in a court yard. It was a little chilly for that today.

Neil took for a brief driving tour of the area around Ruth’s. Here is a picture of the Utah State House.

After we finished breakfast we headed back to Neil and Laura’s house to pick up her two sons and then headed out to visit the Kennecott Copper mine. We had reserved tickets in advance for the tour bus that would take us up to the mine’s viewing area. Kennecott is one of the largest if not the largest open pit mining operation in the world. It is located about 25-30 miles southwest of Salt Lake City.

Here are some of my pictures:

Finally, we met Laura’s Dad for dinner at the Bohemian Brewery and Grill in Midway, UT. Great food and company.

All done for today. Tomorrow we have more stuff planned. Then we will be heading home on Sunday.
