Colorado Chronicles : The Gold Belt Tour

150 years or so ago, many Colorado mountain towns were besieged by miners. Yup, those four magic letters brought in prospectors by the thousands. Those letters? G-O-L-D. To this day, re-claimed mines dot the Colorado landscape. There are several of them up the hill behind my Mom's house in Central City. People still stop by one of many roadside "pan for gold" places in the mountains while vacationing in Colorado. I have a much better idea if you are eager to find gold in them thar hills. The Colorado Gold Belt Tour.

This 131 mile tour one of the better vacation ideas I've heard in quite some time. The tour takes you through Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Victor Town, Canon City and Cripple Creek (think casinos !!!). The scenery on your quest for gold will be some of the most beautiful in Colorado. Click here to see some of the sights that await you on the Gold Belt Tour. When you click the link above, be sure to navigate the page you land on and the provided links. You'll be glad you did.
Upon the completion of your day-long journey, you'll be the next one to yell, "Eureka!!!!"
