Going for Gold

Photobucket
Henry claims his favorite thing we did in Colorado was the Country Boy Mine.
It's an old gold mine that has been shut down, but they are open for tours.

We had to put on hard hats and be led by a miner down into the wet and dark mine.
He told us about how miners only got paid $1 a day and only lived up to 4 years.

Grandma had been sick most of the week, so we were glad she was feeling better & able to join us!

Stella, on the other hand, was not so grateful to be there. She wanted the hard hat OFF!
Safety first!

The whole touring crew...

After the tour we got to pan for gold...

But, we came up empty. I guess Preston will have to keep working!
