    Any idea what that black stuff is? Found it in a river and decided to bring it home

    Amen to that

    It’s still out there in places people have looked. Remote hard to get areas no one ever went to. Sure it’s not as easy as the old timers had it, but I’m sure there’s big chunks up in a tributary that’s been overlooked for centuries

    Enough research and anyone from out of state can come and have a decent idea of where to start looking. Personally I live in Estes but typically go to the western side of the divide to detect or prospect. That doesn’t mean there’s no gold on the eastern slopes. Just means (personally my opinion)...

    So I’ve been researching this story thoroughly, they’re on the run with vigilantes on their tail, run around mount Logan through Geneva gulch and a horse dies, then they go to the headwaters of deer creek, see an old mine shaft and hastily bury the loot, and stabbed a knife into a dead tree to...
  12. Deadman's cave

    Haven’t made it down yet but I’ve read about it, ever make it down there?
  13. Devils Head Colorado

    Woulda been nice if the journalist had mentioned which part of the mountain this happened on, did they record the forest fires back then in the area?
  14. Devils Head Colorado

    Interesting, ever get up there to check it out?
  15. Half Moon Gulch

    I haven’t been able to find anything at all on it, I live a few hours away from Leadville, really wanting to check this area out. Has there been any more info?
