6Nov2017: I passed by the historic Argo Mine a couple of weeks ago and it reminded me of Colorado's Mineral Belt, a 30-mile wide, 300-mile long underground cache stretching from Silverton in San Juan County to Gold Hill in Boulder County. Some mining is still going on, but most Colorado mines closed decades ago when the gold and silver boom faded. The only thing Argo mines now is tourism.

Dirt biking to some Colorado relics, old diesel shovel maybe? (Actually it looks like a drag line for working with the looser stuff like the flats out here.) @bobba_lu. #cugeology #gold #silver #mineralbelt

Couple miles on the mineral belt today. Mountains are home! ♥️🚵🏔️ #coloradorockies #blessed #leadville #mineralbelt
The run-down shelter near the summit of Dun Mountain, Nelson. Will provide basic shelter from the elements but not much more.

A little photo diary of our drive through Colorado's "Mineral Belt" on our way back to Arizona. Leadville to Gunnison, Ouray, Silverton, and down to Four Corners🌲☀️

One of my favorite places..... ✨Biking the mineral belt trail 10,000 feet above sea level. Takes my breath away (both physically and aesthetically....). Along this 12 ish mile paved bike path you can see astounding visuals as well as remains of old mining towns.
It's been raining a lot so the mountain wildflowers are abundant and sooooo beautiful.
Can't keep myself from collecting them to admire them up close and personal -sigh-......

Dun Mountain Walkway, halfway between Maitai Dam and Coppermine Saddle. The western edge of the mineral belt on Wooded Peak is easily distinguished by the sudden change in vegetation from low scrub to beech forest.

We had a beautiful sunset last night

Lower section of Dun Mountain Walkway, next to Maitai River South Branch, before the uphill toward Coppermine Saddle begins. The walkway passes through the dry kanuka scrub of the mineral belt.

Looking west across Tasman Bay from the summit of Dun Mountain, Nelson. Fringed Hill is straight ahead and you can just make out Port Nelson to the right of it. Dun Mt is a great day walk through the amazing landscape of the mineral belt (the summit is 5-7 hrs return from Maitai Valley road end).

The track to Whispering Falls branches off of Hacket Track. The use of 'falls' in their name is slightly misleading; they are more of a dribble (except after rain), though the misty water droplets and mossy rockface are pretty nonetheless. There's a good picnic spot in the clearing above the falls.

Hacket Track crosses the Dun Mountain ophiolite belt, where outcrops of ultramafic rock rich in minerals like chromite, olivine and serpentine are revealed. This is a really interesting half-day walk within half an hour drive of Richmond.

A wonderful day, with wonderful ladies, snow, and sun! 🗻🌞 #mineralbelt #leadvilleliving
I just love the views from the Mineral Belt Trail in Leadville,  CO. I'm pretty certain Turquoise Lake is white right now, but this picture has me thinking warm thoughts. ❤

I believe that we have the power to choose our outlook in life. That through all the heartache, the pain, and the struggle, we must rise. We rise up each day to meet the sunshine with our heads high and shoulders back. .

Went crazy when I saw this pop art-style image of Colorado's "Elemental Alluvia" in an article in the most recent MODERN IN DENVER Magazine! #Colorado #Coloradomineralbelt #mineralbelt #ModerninDenver #cityofdenver #viewdenver #ilovecolorado #welovecolorado #travelerincolorado #gemsandminerals #popart #maps #coloradomaps #coloradogeilogy #geologists #elementalalluvia #coloradogeologists
The beginning of the Motueka river way over in the Richmond Ranges near Porters Hut. Mineral belt runs through with a defined line where the forest stops and the rocky barren landscape begins #redhills #richmondranges #motuekariver #mineralbelt #geology #rangerlife
Summer is winding down, so I figured I'd walk the Mineral Belt Trail (summit 10,606 ft) in Leadville, CO. #leadvillecolorado #🍁🍃🍂 #endofsummer #mineralbelttrail

Had to drive 3 hours for 20 mins of court in Leadville today. The upside? My favorite longboarding spot the #mineralbelt! Just a mix of some footage I got. #longboard

A highlight of this weekend was the National Mining Hall of Fame and #Museum. The #specimens and #history were frantastic and the indoor mine was my favorite. #ElGringo #vanlife #vanlifecolorado #vanliving #mines #minerals #geology #geogeek #mineralbelt #leadville #Colorado #highcountry
Can't wait to climb mountains again with my dog. Running on the #mineralbelt will do for now. Cheers to getting back in shape! 🍻

Grinding on the #longboard till powder season hits... Oh yea and Colorado is REALLYY beautiful this time of year. #mineralbelt #fall #timeschanging #coloradorockies #leadville #10200ft #longboardpicture
Iron oxide from the #mineralbelt is the cause for one of the most uniquely colored bodies of water I've ever seen. #coloradotography #guanellapass

Leaving behind the softness of beech litter underfoot for the barren desert-like wilderness of the Red Hills. Hello ultramafics, turpentine wood & tussock for a couple of days.
