Eagle Mine in Julian

Hey all.  I was up in Julian this weekend looking in some of shops and noticed a flier advertising tours of the Eagle Mine in Julian.  I was curious if anyone knows much about this area? 

The flier I picked up reads, "The Eagle Mine and High Peak Mine were both registered in 1870 in an area known as Gold Hill.  The two mines were joined in time and became the site of the most notable disaster in the history of the Cuyamaca mining in 1906."

Here is a link.

I took a tour of that mine a while back. It's really cool. Pitch dark in most parts. There were also a number of deaths associated with accidents. The miners suffered miserable working conditions. All this, if you subscribe to the idea of psychological imprints, would lead you to the idea that this could be a veritable gold mine of psychic activity, no pun intended.

It's a pretty low key operation, if I recall. Usually they have a guide or two that charges a small amount to take you on a tour with the option of a small tip at the end. There is also a pretty interesting little rock shop. If you subscribe to the theory that paranormal activity is associated with quartz and other minerals, then this would definitely be the place to "dig in," no pun intended.

I would definitely enjoy doing an investigation here if the owners were interested. Maybe if we can put together this investigation at the San Diego race track, and do our usual smash up job, then we can have a reference to get us into some of these other interesting places. I know so many times we've tried to investigate locations just like this only to get "the shaft" in the end. No pun or double entendre intended.

The only downside I see is that if you are afraid of the dark, or enclosed spaces, then you will have a problem with this place. But it is very isolated and, as long as you can filter out any critters or nature sounds, I think if you get an EVP there it would stand up to scrutiny, even by the "pickiest" people. No pun intended.

I'm on a roll. SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!

Wow, you make it sound like a "Disneyland of the Ghosthunter".....
I think it sounds cool. I don't mind mines, been in a few.
Now, as for my body being well enough to go where my mind wants to go...

I totally think it would be a fun place to check out.  I like what Jason said to use the SD Fair as a reference for the future.  Jason... are you hilarious!  Please don't stop.
