Big truck, little John

Originally uploaded by marymompics

In the picture above is the Twenty Mule Team Museum. The twenty mule teams hauled more than 20 million pounds of borax out of Death Valley between 1883 and 1889. We didn’t go in the museum this time as we had visited it previously. The vintage Thunderbird parked out front was just an additional perk. Then we walked down to the corner park and found this giant dump truck used for hauling out the borax once the mules were no longer used. It was replaced by an even larger dump truck. This was definitely a photo op. Another in a long line of “big something, little John” pictures.
