A picture from 2001... hmm.

Reminding myself of an adventure (an odyssey? but not in space). Unless space is your mind and your mind is a physical place, and you happen to be walking around Berkeley...then. When then was now, in 2001.

Hearst Memorial Mining Building was being seismically retrofitted.

Wikimapia of campus all laid out:

I remember this! I worked across the street at the time. It made walking around that section of campus a pain because of all the construction buildings.

Did you ever take a tour (guided or otherwise)? :)

Didn't take a guided tour. We did try to get there underground, but never managed to find a clear route.

I walked in one night and am wracking my brain trying to remember the particulars =/
