Mining

Took a trip to Victor, CO this weekend. This is where the CO goldrush hit big, they pulled over 400 Million dollars of gold ore out of the ground here before the year 1900. I think that works out to around 13 billion today. There are still some active mines around, but most never recovered from the mandated mining shutdown during WWII.

Thats alot of money for a town that now has only 455 residents, down from over 10,000 back in the day.

pretty cool. There was a similar pile of logs taunting me at the side of the trail on the E100. My friend James almost fell in a mine at Park City too, and said the snowboarding is bad anyway.
