Sunglasses pushed against your brow, you extend your left arm in an affirmative thumbs up as collective engines rumble like a pack of hungry bears. Splashes of light whip through the treetops as your foot presses on the gas and the Pacific air whistles past your ears.

If you haven’t been to the Britannia Mine Museum or haven’t visited in a long time, you and your family are in for a treat.
