When: 1/19 - 1/21

Where: Hutchinson, KS

Summary: We drove 6 hours up to the Salt Mine but before we got there we went to a space museum where we learned about aircraft carriers, antique rockets. We were also able to eat MRE's and after that, we watched a documentary about submarines and Naval ships. Finally, we got to the salt mine and learned about mining and geology along with the Permian period and all of the mine's equipment. Near the end of our trip, we rode trams and learned what mining was about during the 1940's and 1950's. During that trip in the mines, we stopped at a little section of the mine and picked out our own salt to take home.
