At nearly three miles across and 3/4 of a mile deep, Utah’s Bingham Canyon Mine is deep enough to fit two of Chicago’s Willis Towers stacked on top of one another.
I was surprised when I saw this headline on my Facebook newsfeed recently.
I did not realize that Kennecott Copper Mine is not very popular. There was a brisk traffic of visitors when hubby and I were there three years ago. This was during one of my pre-blogging trips, so I don’t have lots of pictures to share. I learned from the exhibits at the visitor center that the Statue of Liberty is the tallest copper statue in the world.
