open pits shown in yesterday's photo, judging from the apparent direction of my gaze. This is an interesting spot, unique in the US, which is probably little-known, and certainly not well remembered. While visitors can't get a very good sense of the now-defunct nickle mine, they can find the occasional souvenir from that operation in the form of a pretty green nickle mineraloid. And the peridotite is as nice and fresh as any I've seen anywhere, including labs. It's a quick and easy stop off I-5 in southern Oregon, and I recommend it.
