Granite Quarries


We took oma to the granite quarries in Barre, Vermont. It was quite impressive!


The picture doesn't do justice to the sheer hugeness of it all. We had a very nice viewing platform here and a knowledgeable guide.


It was pretty cold up there though, so I was glad when we could get into our cars again.


Afterwards we visited the Hope Cemetery, in which all the monuments are made out of granite. Quite impressive!


I had been there before while geocaching, but it was a totally new experience for oma.

I went to a place where they sold granite in Edmonton. It was cool because they talked a little bit about what happens at the quarries.
