 The Dome of the Continent: Colorado in 1872

back to Colorado page

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.

24 pages.
