My family and I take a tour of the Argo Gold Mill. Very interesting tour that includes a short mine tour of the Double Eagle Mine and the Mill itself that was fed by a tunnel between Idaho Springs and Central City. This tunnel intersected many mines along the way allowing drainage, ventilation and ore transportation. The mill processed the gold ore into gold. http://historicargotours.com/ Thanks for Watching!

The Phoenix Gold Mine (6.29.2018) Nestled near Idaho Springs, the Phoenix Mine is a must-visit.! The Phoenix Vein was discovered in 1871. It has made many people rich since then! Although still mined today, tours and gold panning are the primary draws to this area now. On this day, I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting the owner of the mine, Alvin Mosch. I am grateful for the time he spent talking to me…telling me stories and expanding on the history in his book. Thank you, Mr. Mosch! THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!

n 1893 construction of the Argo Tunnel Began. It would be 17 years before it would reach Central City, over 4.5 miles away. The tunnel would provide water drainage, ventilation and economical transportation of the gold bearing ore from the many mines it would intersect along the way. The Argo Mill was constructed to process the gold bearing ore from these mines. When completed, the Argo would be the largest mill of its type in the world. The mill processed over 100 million dollars of gold ore at the old time prices of $18.00 to $35.00 per ounce and stands today as a memorial to the hard rock miners of the day when GOLD WAS KING!

Press LIKE if you agree to KEEP OUR MINES OPEN. Argo Mine in Idaho Springs, CO -History- The digging of the Argo tunnel would begin in 1893 with hand drill and hammer, black powder was used for blasting. At twelve feet wide, it was 4.16mi long, and by it's completion in 1910 the digging rate was up to .5mi per year. Over two hundred million dollars of rich ore was sent directly to the smelters in Denver; the Argo Mill recovered over one hundred million dollars of gold values.

We spent the weekend in Glenwood Springs and Aspen and on the way home we stopped in Historic Idaho Springs to take a tour of one of the old gold mines there. Argo Gold Mill dug more than just gold, minerals and ores as well. It was really cool to learn about the history of the mine, why it is shut down now and do a little bit of panning for Placer gold. I recommend the tour if you enjoy learning about what brought the people West. It was awesome. I suggest Rita as your tour guide. She was dope. seriously.

If there’s one climb that stands above all in Colorado it’s Mount Evans. Not only is it the highest summit of the Chicago Peaks, in the Front Range of the Rockies, but to top it off it’s the highest paved road in north America at a whopping 14,130ft (4,307m) elevation! To put that in perspective by the summit you’re just 1,640ft (500m) shy of being at the top of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, but to make it that high in Europe you’ll definitely need to trade your wheels for a pair of ice axes.....not so in the U.S! In cycling terms, it’s like taking the Galibier and sticking Alpe d’Huez on top, starting at an already oxygen deprived 7,526ft (2,294m) elevation and riding all the way until the air is so thin you swear you’re about to enter a vacuum. Starting in the historic mining town of Idaho Springs you face a daunting 27.9 mile ascent, journeying through three life zones passing forests, lakes and ancient trees toward the unknown. Although the gradient is never too steep, averaging 4.6% and topping out at 10% it’s the combination of the altitude and elements working together that make this one of the hardest climbs there is. Period. As you emerge from the Arapaho National Forest conditions can change quickly. In a moment the temperature dropped from 71°F (21°C) to just 39°F (4°C) and with the wind chill it felt bitter to the point my face was verging on freezing. With 60% less oxygen than at sea level, and a ripping headwind, the final miles often result in nothing more than sheer bloody mindedness and a will to survive. Well, at least that’s what it felt like to me. We’d actually planned to ride Mount Evans later in our trip to give some time to acclimatise to the altitude but our original date happened to fall the wrong side of Labor Day (which is normally when the road is then closed after Summit Lake approximately 5 miles from the top). Not wanting to risk it we had to tackle this on day one, straight off the back of a long haul flight coming from sea level. I’d like to think that’s why I found it so hard but the reality is, even on the finest of days and with the best prep Mount Evans is, and always will be, an utter brute. And you know what? We wouldn’t want it any other way. Start: Idaho Springs Length: 27.9mi / 43.9km Summit: 14,130ft / 4,307m Elevation gain: 6,944ft / 2116m Average gradient: 4.7% Max gradient: 10% Ridden in September Thank you to our partners Mavic, Cannondale, Exposure Lights, Fi’zi:k, Haute Route, Lezyne, Map My Tracks, Muc Off, Scicon, The Sufferfest, TORQ and USE for enabling us to bring these truly special mountains to life for you all.

This Clayton Idaho Mine seems too be pretty ghostly, its like everyone just up and left at the same time and left everything behind. This mine was one of the largest producers of silver and lead in the Bayhorse Mining District of Custer County, Idaho. The mine and milling facility operated between 1935 and 1985 and produced about 6.7 million ounces of silver and 83.5 million pounds of lead. The mine also produced a small amount of gold and copper and a substantial amount of zinc during its 50-year operational period. The mine closed in 1986 due to low silver prices and the high cost of dewatering the mine after the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake.

We visited Boise Idaho for our latest 4K virtual treadmill walking tour. We start out in the hotel district and walk up towards the capitol building, into a nearby residential area with large houses, and then back through the restaurant district. Boise is a bustling hip city with lots of places to stay, hotels, motels and AirBnBs. There are lots of great restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops. There are bird and Lime scooters all over the place. We had a great time in this modern vibrant city. Here are some facts from Wikipedia: Boise is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Idaho, and is the county seat of Ada County. Located on the Boise River in southwestern Idaho, the population of Boise at the 2010 Census was 205,671, the 99th largest in the United States. Its estimated population in 2016 was 223,154. ￼ Downtown Boise in the fall of 2013 The Boise-Nampa metropolitan area, also known as the Treasure Valley, includes five counties with a combined population of 709,845, the most populous metropolitan area in Idaho. It contains the state's three largest cities; Boise, Nampa, and Meridian. Boise is the 80th most populous metropolitan statistical area in the United States Accounts differ regarding the origin of the name. One account credits Capt. B.L.E. Bonneville of the U.S. Army as its source. After trekking for weeks through dry and rough terrain, his exploration party reached an overlook with a view of the Boise River Valley. The place where they stood is called Bonneville Point, located on the Oregon Trail east of the city. According to the story, a French-speaking guide, overwhelmed by the sight of the verdant river, yelled "Les bois! Les bois!" ("The woods! The woods!")—and the name stuck. The name may instead derive from earlier mountain men, who named the river that flows through it. In the 1820s, French Canadian fur trappersset trap lines in the vicinity. Set in a high-desert area, the tree-lined valley of the Boise River became a distinct landmark, an oasis dominated by cottonwood trees. They called this "La rivière boisée", which means "the wooded river." ￼ Main Street in 1911 The area was called Boise long before the establishment of Fort Boise by the federal government. The original Fort Boise was 40 miles (64 km) west, near Parma, down the Boise River near its confluence with the Snake River at the Oregon border. This private sector defense was erected by the Hudson's Bay Company in the 1830s. It was abandoned in the 1850s, but massacres along the Oregon Trail prompted the U.S. Army to re-establish a fort in the area in 1863 during the U.S. Civil War. The new location was selected because it was near the intersection of the Oregon Trail with a major road connecting the Boise Basin (Idaho City) and the Owyhee (Silver City) mining areas, both of which were booming. During the mid-1860s, Idaho City was the largest city in the Northwest, and as a staging area, Fort Boise grew rapidly; Boise was incorporated as a city 156 years ago in 1863. The first capital of the Idaho Territory was Lewiston in north central Idaho, which in 1863 was the largest community, exceeding the populations of Olympia and Seattle, Washington Territory and Portland, Oregon combined. The original territory was larger than Texas. But following the creation of Montana Territory, Boise was made the territorial capital of a much reduced Idaho in a controversial decision which overturned a district court ruling by a one-vote majority in the territorial supreme court along geographic lines in 1866. Boise has a semi-arid continental weather climate, with four distinct seasons. Boise experiences hot and dry summers with highs reaching 100 °F (38 °C) eight days in a typical year and 90 °F (32 °C) on 51 days. Yet because of the aridity, average diurnal temperature variation exceeds 30 °F (17 °C) in summer. Winters are moderately cold, with a December average of 30.7 °F (−0.7 °C), and lows falling to 0 °F (−18 °C) or below on around three nights per year. Snowfall averages 19 inches (48 cm), but typically falls in bouts of 3 inches (8 cm) or less. Spring and fall are mild. Autumn is brief; spring is gradual. Extremes have ranged from −28 °F (−33 °C) on January 16, 1888 to 111 °F (44 °C), as recently as July 19, 1960; temperatures have reached −25 °F (−32 °C) and 110 °F (43 °C) as recently as December 22, 1990 and June 28, 2015, respectively. Precipitation is usually infrequent and light, especially so during the summer months. It averages approximately 11 inches annually.
