The Dome of the Continent:
Colorado in 1872
by V. Colvin.
With geological, mineralogical, and biological notes, here is a little tour of the
Colorado of 1872--one of mining camps, stage roads, and a mountain climb to the summit of
Grays Peak, a "14er" (peak over 14,000 feet altitude). It was a tour similar to
ones today's visitor often take, 'though they use their cars more. Area covered includes
Denver and the mountains just west--Central City, Idaho Springs, Georgetown, Grays Peak.
Topics cover how to find gold, mine it, and refine it. Modern visitors can appreciate
their sojourns more with this historical insight. There are fanciful sketches of alpine
animals like conies and ptarmigans plus engraved illustrations of scenery and mining.
