- available to rent or lease; "a rental car"

- Of, relating to, or available for rent
Mining's dramatic and dangerous nature is reflected in the hundreds of specialized tools and artifacts shown in over 450 color photographs and discussed in this fascinating new book. Thirty categories, from advertising and assay equipment to surveying equipment and tokens, chronicle old mining methods in detail. An elevated appreciation is gained here of the men and women who spent part of their lives in mining with this equipment. Today, historians and collectors pay respect to those people as they preserve and interpret the equipment that remains. This is an important and valuable reference for all concerned.
The Great Northern Mines
When I was staying at the Atherton Blue Gum B&B the owners told me of these mining trails in Herberton. I wasn't sure what all was in the Atherton Tablelands and after spending my first week in the wonderful Daintree Rainforest the last thing I wanted was to be on the edge of a town and too close to so many people. I wanted to see some of the area and basically got a lot of ideas from these two.
It was the husband who told me of these hiking trails and all it took was for him to mention old mining towns and old mines to have me hooked on the idea of driving to this locale and exploring a bit. I have a thing for old abandoned stuff so this was one thing I definitely wanted to see...not to mention he said there would be few people on the trails due to the fact that most weren't the easiest to hike on.
Armed with my water bottle, a snickers bar, maps and my camera I headed off in the rental car to Herberton. It turned out to be one of the best days I had in the Atherton Tablelands.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of the gear I have accumulated over the months. Seen here is the:
18-200 VR f/3.5-5.6
70-200 VR f/2.8
An no I don't actually own the 70-200mm lens. It was a rental for a weekend, but some day this baby will be mine!
