Boulder to Black Hawk Colorado (Casino town) Road Tour
Driving Boulder's scenic Colorado 93 highway to Black Hawk Colorado. This is an easy and very scenic drive one hour drive. Even if you don't gamble, it's worth a quick trip. Black Hawk Colorado's least populated City. It started out as a Gold mining town during the Pike's peak gold rush days. Buffalo Bill once lived in Black Hawk during the gold rush days. Black Hawk started to dwindle in the 20th century until they opened their first casino in 1991. They current have 18 casinos operating in Black Hawk today. Black Hawk is also a quick trip from Denver and there seems to be plenty of charter/tour buses taking people to and from near by towns. If you're not into casino's, this route through the gulch is dotted with places used for rafting.

Wild Road, Wild Gold, Spring break gold panning adventure!
Great gold! Fantastic day gold panning on the Fraser River. Spring break 2019 Mike, Pete and I went on a 4 day adventure to the Fraser river. This day we tried to get into an amazing claim my dad and I hit last year at this time. Unfortunately the road which was bad then was completely unpassable this time. Big washouts had destroyed the road completely. So as a back-up plan we went to a friends claim in the same area. We were panning for gold for an entire day and each of us got a great take of placer gold. Gold prospecting on the Fraser river is always fun. Even better when doing it with good friends. What a wild adventure.

St Elmo Historic District (Ghost Town)
St. Elmo is a ghost town in Chaffee County, Colorado, United States. Founded in 1880, St. Elmo lies in the heart of the Sawatch Range, 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Buena Vista and sits at an elevation of 9,961 feet (3,036 m). Nearly 2,000 people settled in this town when mining for gold and silver started. The mining industry started to decline in the early 1920s, and in 1922 the railroad discontinued service. The community is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the St. Elmo Historic District. It is one of Colorado's best preserved ghost towns. St. Elmo was originally named Forest City but was later changed because of the multitude of towns with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was reading a novel with the same title. The town was at its peak in the 1890s, when it included a telegraph office, general store, town hall, 5 hotels, saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a school house. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo. There were 150 patented mine claims within the area. The majority of the people who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the largest and most successful mine in the area. The Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold while it was in operation. While the other mines eventually shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the railroad was abandoned in 1922. Once the mining industry shut down, St. Elmo drastically declined in population. Miners searched elsewhere for gold and silver and the business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. Even though St. Elmo is considered a ghost town it is still inhabited. Tourism brings many people to the St. Elmo area every year. The old mining roads are now used as Jeep and four-wheeler trails. There are also many good places to fish along Chalk Creek, which runs through St. Elmo. The general store is open during the summer, when tourists can rent four-wheelers or buy items. Many of the buildings are still intact. However, the town hall and a few other buildings burnt down in 2002. Buena Vista Heritage is rebuilding the town hall to its original state.

Montezuma Mine, Colorado. Gold Rush Expeditions, 2014
The Montezuma mine was originally located in 1878, near the apex of the lode that would be come to be known as the Smuggler Lode. By 1884 the mine had been producing thousands of tons of silver and lead ore along with a lot of gold. Old historical documents show that the gold was processed at the lower or 6th level as they shipped all of the silver and lead down to be smelted in Leadville. Somewhere around 1896-7, a larger mining company began digging in near the river following placer gold and silver bits. They called this mine the Carribeau, named for a lake or sea in Europe. They worked in and hit the Smuggler vein at a lower instance. Unlike the upper mine, these claimants immediately patented the property once they were producing ores. Around 1900, the Carribeau, working up, intersected with the Montezuma as they worked down. The details are unknown, but the Carribeau sold out their interest to the Montezuma. Law had already established ownership of lodes at the apex of the vein. With that in place they would not have legally held the mine for long. On or around 1901, the unpatented Montezuma was sold along with the Carribeau (now known as the 13th level) to some investors from Boston for $350,000.00, in 2014 figures that is equal to $9,649,437.26. This was not wasted money, the mine was noted for expansive reserves of gold, silver and lead. The new company installed a double battery of stamp mills and began pushing all of the ores out to the 13th level and processing at that point. The mine kept working under a few various entities until 1936, still shipping ore, when the economic crisis brought on by the rise of Nazi Germany and the anti-mining rhetoric from FDR caused what was thought to be a temporary closure. The Montezuma Mine has a documented 12.8 miles of drifts, raises, winzes and cross-cuts. This was a gold mine, the silver was ancillary. Between 1881 and 1913 the mine recovered an estimated 50,000 ounces of gold, it's one of the reasons it never slowed down even with the silver crash in 1893.

A Ghost Town with a Freemason Temple - Victor, CO
Victor is a ghost city in Teller County, Colorado, United States. Gold was discovered in Victor in the late 19th century, an omen of the future of the town. With Cripple Creek, the mining district became the second largest gold mining district in the country and realized approximately $10 billion of mined gold in 2018 dollars. It reached its peak around the turn of the century when there were about 18,000 residents in the town (The population was 397 at the 2010 census.). Depleted ore in mines, labor strife and the exodus of miners during World War I caused a steep decline in the city's economy, from which it has never recovered. Although the population of Victor may be low, the towns-people spirits are very high. The people I spoke to were very welcoming and knowledgeable about their hometown. So much so that I am returning this spring to have a tour by some of the people I met. I strongly suggest that you pay Victor a visit. In fact, they have several attractions, outside of the breathtaking views and well-preserved architecture. Some of my favorites include the Lowell Thomas Mining Museum, the cities walking tour, and the "Vindicator Valley Trail".

Glenwood Springs | Idaho Springs | Georgetown Loop Railroad
Glenwood Springs | Idaho Springs | Georgetown Loop Railroad Glenwood Springs, a city with a total area of less than 5 square miles, is a further 2 hours east towards Denver along the I-70 and about 150 miles west of Denver. Three and a half million gallons a day at a constant temperature of 120 degrees pour from the natural hot springs which are the largest natural hot springs in the world. The hot spring pools are the big attraction here, one measuring 400 feet by 100 feet with water of 90 degrees, and a smaller therapy pool with water of 104 degrees. The Iron Mountain Tramway carries visitors up the mountain for a tour of the caverns, hike along the half mile long Panoramic Trail for fantastic views over the Rockies and the Colorado River, pan for gemstones at Discovery Rock or try horse riding on a one hour trail through roaring Fork Valley. The Colorado Wranglers offer a family friendly show, which include a chuck wagon supper and a western musical comedy show at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs. White water rafting and fly fishing are just two of the many activities on offer in Glenwood Springs. Georgetown Loop Railroad is still further east past the ski resorts of Vail and Aspen, and offers tourists a scenic and historic train ride around the mountains. Steam driven engines and old fashioned carriages add to the thrill. The beauty of the rugged Rocky Mountains surrounds you as an old-time steam locomotive or a powerful diesel locomotives winds up the Clear Creek canyon, hauling your train past the remains of several gold and silver mines. Both fully enclosed and open cars give a breath taking view of everything along the line. Board from the Silver Plume Depot or Devils Gate Station in Georgetown. There is a full program of activities to choose from throughout the year, such as 4th July Fireworks train, Moonlight in the mountains Dinner Train, Wine Tasting Train, Pumpkin Festival Train and Santas Polar Adventure Trains. There is a lovely tourist information store in Georgetown. Idaho Springs is the birthplace of the Rocky Mountain gold rush 33 miles west of Denver, visit the gold mine to pan for gold and visit the gold-mining museum. In nearby Miner Street, walk along the wooden sidewalks and visit the quaint shops for souvenirs, see the preserved steam train with carriages, or cross under the I-70 to visit the large waterwheel with tumbling cataracts. South of town, drive the highest paved road in North America and head to the top of Mount Evans, one of Colorado's tallest mountains. The road starts off at 8,700 feet, rising to 14,240 feet at the summit. The temperature cools accordingly, if its 90 in Denver it will be more like 40 degrees at the top of Mount Evans. Idaho Springs is also near Golden Gate State Park with stunning views of the continental divide, and within an hour's drive of six of the state's most famous ski resorts. Dozens of other recreation spots are also near these 12,000 acres of dense forest, rocky peaks, and aspen-rimmed meadows laced with miles of trails awaiting the hiker, horseback rider, mountain biker and winter sports enthusiast. Camp with electrical hook-ups and tent-sites in two different campgrounds, stocked fishing ponds, picnic sites and the Panorama Point Scenic Overlook where visitors can see 100 miles of the Continental Divide.

Abandoned Gold Mine.
2010RoadTripUSA. Part 20. Abandoned Gold Mine. August 2010. Music by Ruben Reeves. Gold mining in Colorado has been an industry since 1858, and played a key role in the establishment of the state of Colorado. Explorer Zebulon Pike heard a report of gold in South Park, present-day Park County, Colorado in 1807. Gold discoveries in Colorado began around Denver, traced the placer gold to its source in the mountains west of Denver, then followed the Colorado Mineral Belt in a southwest direction across the state to its terminus in the San Juan Mountains. The Cripple Creek district, far from the mineral belt, was one of the last gold districts to be discovered. Prospectors discovered rich placer deposits on the west side of South Park in 1859. The deposits were in valleys on the east side of the Mosquito Range. The principal districts were the Alma-Fairplay district on the headwaters of the South Platte River, and the Tarryall district along Tarryall Creek northwest of Como, Colorado. Important lode gold deposits were later discovered above Alma. A floating dredge worked the floor of the South Park valley east of Fairplay from 1941 to 1952, leaving the distinctive gravel ridges that can still be seen. Production from the Tarryall district was 67,000 troy ounces (2.1 t), almost all from placers. The Alma-Fairplay district produced 1,550,000 troy ounces (48 t), more than two-thirds of which came from lode deposits. (wikipedia)

St Mary's Mining Claim - Alice, Colorado - 2016
The St. Mary Mines are high mountain, Colorado mining sites, situated in the St Mary Glacial Bowl. . Native Gold and some silver can be easily picked out of the substantial waste dumps found on the site. With the amount of gold that has been discarded, it is likely there are still some amazing high grade gold deposits underground.

Gold Trails and Ghost Towns - The Lost Spanish Mound
Spanish Mound Legend – For years, a puzzling legend has persisted in the Similkameen: The legend of the Spanish Mound. The Spanish Mound is, reputedly, a low grassy mound in which are buried both numerous pieces of armour and weapons and the remains of long-dead Spanish Soldiers, members of an ill-fated expedition which was ambushed an annihilated in the Similkameen over two centuries ago. The legend relates the story of an expedition which came to the Similkameen long before “King George’s Men” arrived in the area. This expedition, supposedly during the mid-1700, marched up the Similkameen, headed north. Somewhere near Keremeos the column halted and camped for some time until an altercation arose between an Indian and a Spanish soldier which precipitated blows, resulting in a small scale battle in which the heavily armed Spanish inflicted heavy losses on the Indians. After this battle, the Spaniards, along with several Indian prisoners retreated to the north-east and disappeared up the valley of Keremeos Creek. It has been stated that they eventually made their way as far north as Kelowna, built permanent quarters near there and wintered. The following spring, for some unknown reason, possibly disease or again Indian hostility, they retraced their steps southward. At any rate, the column, their numbers somewhat depleted from the summer before, re-appeared in the valley near the upper reaches of Keremeos Creek. After treking down to the valley floor, they camped, so the legend goes, on a small flat near where Keremeos Creek flows out of the hills (evidently somewhere near where the Green Mountain road braches off the main highway) to rest and graze their tired horses. Several days later, somewhere near there, the Similkameens in overwhelming numbers attacked the Spaniards and after a prolonged and bloody battle, slaughtered them to the last man. After this epic battle, according to the legend, the Similkameens buried the Spanish, complete with armour and weapons, in a small mound somewhere between the Old Spanish Camp and Keremeos and there they still lie, in an unmarked and long lost burial mound. There are no historical records, Spanish or other, which indicate that a Spanish expedition actually did penetrate inland this far north. However, this legend is supported by some circumstantial evidence which is rather difficult to explain away.
