The Mining Museum has informative and interesting exhibits about mining around the world. History, machinery, dioramas, and a walk through model mine. But my favorites are the exquisite mineral specimens.
|Rhodochrosite (red) is Colorado's State mineral.|
|Selenite from Manitoba Cananda|
|Quartz from Ontario Canada|
|Scolocite (white) & Apophyllite (green) from India|
|Quartz on Specularite from China|
|A huge magnificent Quartzite specimen|
And everyone loves gold
|1852 $5 US gold coin|
|"Littlle Jonny" A 24 oz crystalline gold specimen was|
recovered from a Little Jonny Mine muck car in 1892
|Placer gold discovered in Fairplay, CO|
Lunch was next. I had some really tasty pizza at High Mountain Pies.
|It's called the Square Pizza, but comes round and very good|
