    Leadville, CO

    Went out slumming so we wound up in Leadville. Not as much snow as I expected. I kicked around in some tailings and picked up some samples that greenhorns like me would believe contained gold. They look cool, anyway.

    I don't think so Seger. I think it's a 'Pyrite inclusion' or whatever. I could sell some shares in that mine based on that sample to the tenderfoots from the flatlands, though.
