"Not trick photography" West Mineral Things to Do Tip by basstbn
West Mineral Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos
The caterpillar tractor and the shovel in the foreground are not toys, but full sized pieces of mining equipment. Perhaps that will give you a better perspective as to the size of Big Brutus, the second largest electric shovel in the world. This monster weighs 11 million pounds, and when "revved up" can reach a cruising speed of .22 mph.
Directions: 6 miles west of K7 & K102 junction. Then 1/4 mile south. The turn-off is marked by a rather rustic sign.
