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.

Idaho springs Colorado. If you love river rafting than I highly recommend Idaho Springs! Spring and Summer brings on the snow melts from the mountains and the rivers are roaring. There is several places in town that can guide you through your rafting experience. Idaho Springs is also the turn off to drive up to Mt Evens. Check out my Coors Mountain Water video...the same water that flows through Idaho Springs flows through to the Coors Brewery just down below in Golden Colorado.

Today I decided to take an amazing adventure spur of the moment up to my home town in Idaho Springs, CO. The girls and I drove into the mountains and got some scenic shots of the historic waterfall and the Argo Mine and Mill. I flew my drone farther than I have ever flown it away from me. The Phantom 3 professional with the 4k camera took some amazing shots. the sun was really bright and I did not have my lense covers hence the bright sun. In this video you can see where the gold rush began, the Indian hot springs, the old clear creek high school, Steve canyon, the baseball fields, really good shots of the Argo Mine and Mill, Oh My god rode. this truly does capture the beauty of my home town.

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!

Silver City sprang up out of the Owyhee Mountains when silver and gold was discovered there in the 1860s. For nearly three decades it thrived as one of the biggest mountain mining towns in southern Idaho. When the precious metals dried up, the people moved out and by World War 2 it was all but abandoned. But Silver City has survived and looks almost the same as it did 150 years ago. Take a 360 tour of Idaho’s Silver City ghost town and see the mining town as it was in its heyday.

The key to freedom is to lower your expenses. In my former life, I managed a company that struggled to stay out of the red. This is where I learned to hone my frugality skills and use them to my own advantage by becoming a minimalist at home. The biggest expense we all have living in a sticks and bricks is our rent or mortgage. We work most of our adult lives to make a bank or landlord / landlady rich! With ever increasing real estate prices and stagnant wages the cost of living has skyrocketed. Many can barely make ends meet and live paycheck to paycheck. You can stop the madness by thinking outside the box and joining this growing movement of full-timers that enjoy van-dwelling or RV living. If you dream about a life of travel you can do it incredibly cheap just by downsizing your lifestyle into a RV or van "tiny house" and becoming mobile. In this series, I go from a home in the Los Angeles hills packed full of stuff and owning two cars to full-timing in a Roadtrek campervan in less than 6 months. I buy an old camper van on Craigslist and deck it out just like home with all kinds of technology to make life comfortable on the road. I hope to encourage those that think they "can't do it" by showing how it CAN be done by planning carefully and taking baby steps. #vanlife #silvercity #ghosttowns #travelvlog #camping #rv #hobotech #rvlife #campervans #roadtrek #productreviews ============================ THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Despite over 10,000 mines in the State of Colorado, very few offer tours. This was one of the better tours I have been on with many branching tunnels, and a drill demonstration.

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!

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.

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!
