So, it’s vacation time. Lots of time to do some mapping. Well, not really when one has a house that needs attention, and 4 kids that can’t be left alone for too long.
Today I had some time, but it was raining. But the two oldest kids wanted to come along for some evening mapping of old quarries. The areas surrounding our village has plenty of old quarries. Some are marble, while the older ones are most often iron or copper. Over the years it has sort of became a separate hobby to find and map them all.
I had seen the quarries on an old orienteering map, so I knew were to go.
The second hole was a little scary since it was quite far to the bottom in one end.
The last three holes were quite small and also quite shallow
Afterwards, we went to a nearby location to look for two more small quarries. All in all, 7 quarries in about an hour. Still there are probably at least 20 more quarries left to find. I need a long vacation…
