The Calmet

The Calmet
The Calmet Mine was worked for Wollastonite, a calcium silicate used in porcelain products. It is estimated that the area contains over 200 million tons of the mineral, but only about 10,000 tons of it was produced during the 1960s.

Great shot, Jim. Next time we go it's going to be with a 4wd.

I think you'll find that a 4WD really opens up the park.
