The path to outdoor news and gear reviews for Colorado
Read the article. Nice writing. I wonder how it would have read 150 years ago when the gold rush started. There would have been people who already lived here, were acclimated and accustomed. The necessary labor would have flooded in from the east with accents, clothes and habits that would have given them away. Some of them left. Couldn't stand it. Some of them lived for years at 11,000 ft, went daily into the dark, dank mines and hammered holes in the granite they filled with dynamite. Those folks had guts. The rest who went home--probably like today, it's the best thing they could do.Nice job, Deb.
