The mine is in a beautiful section of Colorado. It definitely has a family feel to it. The tour of the mine is very personal, yet informative. Lots of neat stories and old mining artifacts. Panning for gold was fun too. Joey, who gave us our panning instructions was a funny little guy. He is probably only 13 or so, but passionate about the experience. The workers work for tips, so bring a few extra bucks for them. Hand feeding the chipmunks at the end of the tour is fun too. The only warning is to use the restroom before you arrive. The restrooms are not pretty, and I'm sure with the heat of the summer, only can get worse. Other than that, a fun experience, worth the stop!!!!
