Amazing Colorado Mine Ruins

Amazing Colorado Mine Ruins

I explore a bit around the Silverton area and find some amazing mine ruins that lead to even more mine ruins and tell you a brief history of the area.

Colorado NFT’s are here

Gear I use for backpacking and filming is mostly purchased from craigslist boulder and thrift stores. I shop in these areas for outdoor gear because the people in this area update their gear every year and have good money, so I try to find last years gear for cheap in areas like this.

    Thanks for an incredible vicarious hiking experience & a fascinating history lesson. Great drone footage well edited with the insertion of historical photos. I never cease to marvel at those intrepid, tireless, ambitious early Colorado settlers & entrepreneurs.

    Yes! Great history lesson…..when men were men! There is a book by John Marshall and Zeke Zanoni about mining the Silverton area and the San Juan mountains. Thanks for sharing the video
