Metal Detecting in Idaho Springs

Small Rail Spike with Mining Scene, Great Gift for the Prospecting DAD

Did you see what gold is doing today? $916 as I write.

Can you believe we can finally put away the WINTER clothing here in the Denver area this week? Gorgeous weather and a mild wind Sunday sent us in search of gold up in the Idaho Springs area with the metal detectors. We did not find any yellow metal, but we did find our share of bullet casings, machine parts, and other junk. The day was wonderful even without finding anything substantial. Just finally getting out was a treat in itself!

Memorial Day outings in Colorado will be put on hold for many people as the campgrounds in the high country are still under FEET of snow and are closed. Looks like they will actually get Trail Ridge Road opened (You should see the walls of snow they are showing on the T.V.), but Independence Pass will not. We are looking at temps in the mid 80's here and mid 60's above 10,000 feet, so run off has begun and I will start posting stream flows on the website by Friday.

Father's Day will be here in a few weeks, so make sure you order your Prospector's Mining Scene from the catalog in time to get it. Dad will be surprised!

Good Prospecting to You,

Shirley Weilnau
