Images From Freeport Mine

An amazing week in Papua took me, two other teachers, and eighteen students to the Freeport Copper and Gold mine in the highlands of Irian Jaya, now called Papua, Indonesia. It was an unbelievable trip, and the mine and the road leading up to the mine was spell-bounding. The mine is located near the equatorial glaciers of Irian Jaya at nearly 14,000 feet. Hard to believe you are only a few degrees south of the equator when up at the top.

Here are a few images I took while at the mine. Not many people on earth have been to this is very remote. Please enjoy the photos, and feel free to vote if you think they deserve it....
