  1. Spent 4 days camping there this past August. Enjoyed the area immensely. Drove our Jeep on the trails, toured the Last Chance Mine with Jack, stayed in a log cabin, waded in the headwaters of the Rio Grande. Great trip. Ouray has competition now as far as I'm concerned.

  2. I'm from New England, and was waiting eagerly for a map of Colorado, and a locator of Creed to orient myself (for a few minutes I thought the town was somewhere near Nederland!) Anyway, maps might help other geographiclly challenged folks like me. PS I thought this episode was wonderful!

  3. Wonderful history you have on this video! Very well done. We have copper and iron mine tours here in Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Same history of hard work and determination.

  4. I never been there though I was an underground gold miner for 43 years in Timmins, Canada, I miss it except for the company politics, lol

  5. That is one beautiful town. From Cali and we have no history we pimped it out to paper dolla. The way the town marry's with the mountain is a Rockwell painting that I wanna live at

  6. I wish we had done this in southwestern PA where my grandfathers worked in the coal mines for 50 cents a ton. Not a single mine was preserved to honor the history of those miners.

  7. Awesome!! Too bad the BLM and Forest Service are closing mines and bulldozin cabins and history. Hopefully we'll be goin to creede this comin up summer.

  8. Creede is a beautiful place. It has become a true tourist area now with so much development. I lived and worked there from 1972 thru 1980. I loved it and missed it for many years. So many memories there!

  9. I DJ'd a prom in Creede a few decades back, the gym was one of the best decorated that I saw in a 5 state tour. Everybody had a blast, Thanx Creede!

  10. mining not done there yet. Silver will go back up someday………. and the silver is still in the ground. 10,100,200 years from now….. the silver is still there and its fact, at some point somebody is going to go after it when the price is right.

  11. With all the transplants they will ruin it like all other mining towns here. They will bulldoze everything, make some damn east coast bistros and typical gift shopsthats sell the same crap all over the country, and they will use the wood from the mines to make "art" while the roads jam up with traffic and bicyclist. So sad

  12. Super! You should have way more views. Go and check out SMZeus!! I used it to promote my social media, you could use it to promote your videos!

  13. Camped North of Creede near old Bachelor town site. Was amazing place!!! So pretty and natural. All the old preserved mine sites and the environmental work done is in amazing harmony!

  14. Cool …but…
    The roles of women are sadly ignored here. As men ripped out Earth's innards, their purportedly Christian women were subjected to prostitution, for example. Those women were worse off than Miners. Hollywood says they got rich, went straight and opened a motel. A more likely outcome might be poverty, disease, ineligibility for marriage and early death in some scrap-built hovel. The elimination of women's History and women's WORK from this is a sad omission. Mining today is the SINGLE industry with the lowest women, and they are having to blaze trails now that should long ago have been paved.
    How many times are MEN mentioned?
    How many times Women?
    If we could STOP writing half the population out of HIS-tory….. that'd be GREAT.

  15. She states "Bob Ford was a gentleman, who killed Jesse James"….really? Bob Ford was a coward POS. Only a coward would purposely shoot someone, anyone, in the back. That is no gentleman. Glad he was killed.

  16. Loved this documentary,,Thankyou 👍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿❤️❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  17. Those people are deceiving everybody in their tribute festivals. They did not have pneumatic drills nor motorized mining cars in the 19th century.
