The Montezuma Mine was originally located in 1878, near the apex of the lode that would be come to be known as the Smuggler Lode. By 1884 the mine had been producing thousands of tons of silver and lead ore along with a lot of gold. Old historical documents show that the gold was processed at the lower or 6th level as they shipped all of the silver and lead down to be smelted in Leadville. Somewhere around 1896-7, a larger mining company began digging in near the river following placer gold and silver bits. They called this mine the Carribeau, named for a lake or sea in Europe. They worked in and hit the Smuggler vein at a lower instance. Unlike the upper mine, these claimants immediately patented the property once they were producing ores. Around 1900, the Carribeau, working up, intersected with the Montezuma as they worked down. The Montezuma Mine has a documented 12.8 miles of drifts, raises, winzes and cross-cuts.

This video starts at Saturday's Discount 12655 US-24, Leadville, CO 80461 with stops at Leadville Sanitation District 911 US-24, Leadville, CO 80461 to pick up water. After this stop is a good example of not having a well defined plan and blinding accepting directions from GPS without going slow enough to realize where it's taking me before I make a turn. Because I got into town so late after burning and repairing a wheel bearing and trailer brakes in Alamosa, CO I almost camped in the Leadville Safeway grocery store parking lot but ended up spending the night at Sugar Loafin' Campground which wasn't too bad. At least I didn't have to worry about trying to haul my large and heavy 6500Lb 8.5'x20' box into unknown NFS camping areas which were very full during the first week of August. Having a standard restroom was also very nice although I took a shower in my rig because I had full tanks and a tankless LP hot water heater. The music is my own creation titled something like "The Human Condition" or something like that and was intended to be an experiment in post rock. It was recorded using Toontracks for drum sequences, Scarlett Focusrite USB audio interface, Schecter bass and ESP guitars recording in late 2008 on cakewalk sonar 7 and unfortunately using Windows...

Leadville is making a comeback. Founded in 1859 during the Gold Rush, the town was built on mining and lived off mining until 1980, when Climax Mine closed -- putting more than half the population out of work.

In a typical burro race, a runner and a burro (donkey) travel a prescribed course together, with the runner leading the burro on a rope. Riding of the burro is not allowed. In fact, the human may carry the burro, but the burro may not carry the human. Trail Runners, Max King and Ryan Sandes, decided to travel to Colorado and enter the 69th Annual Burro Days 30 Mile World Championship Pack Burro Race. After all… How hard can it be?

Nestled in northern Mexico and the canyons of the Sierra Madre Occidental is a small tribe of indigenous people known as the Tarahumara. They call themselves Rarámuri, loosely translated as "running people," "foot-runner," "swift of foot," or "he who walks well." They are known for evading the Spanish conquerors in the sixteenth century and keeping their cave-dwelling culture alive and secluded. They are also known for their long distance running and their superior health, not displaying the common health issues of "modern" societies. A recent National Geographic study (Nov. 2008) states: "When it comes to the top 10 health risks facing American men, the Tarahumara are practically immortal: Their incidence rate is at or near zero in just about every category, including diabetes, vascular disease, and colorectal cancer...Plus, their supernatural invulnerability isn't just limited to their bodies; the Tarahumara have mastered the secret of happiness as well, living as benignly as bodhisattvas in a world free of theft, murder, suicide, and cruelty." So what is the Tarahumara story and what can we learn from them? How can we use their history as an example for our own primal living? For some they may not be an example of what is considered primal, but they are one of the closest we can find in today's world. http://liveprimal.com/2009/07/tarahumara-the-running-people/

In America, fox hunting is also called 'fox chasing,' as the purpose is not to actually kill the animal but to enjoy the thrill of the chase. A hunt may go without a kill for several years, despite chasing two or more foxes in a single day's hunting. As a rule, foxes are not pursued once they have 'gone to ground.' American fox hunters undertake stewardship of the land, and endeavor to maintain fox populations and habitats as much as possible.

I visited historic Colorado ghost town St. Elmo early in May 2012, before the usual tourist rush. Aside from some snow on the ground, the most interesting thing about it was that the Denver band "Fiction is Fun" happened to be making a music video in the deserted town that weekend. Now, this was the middle of the day on a Saturday, so the absence of tourists clogging the streets would be highly unlikely in, say, July. Anyway, it is just a walk through town on a nice, if somewhat cool, day in case you ever wondered what an authentic ghost town really looked like.

This is a video clip from my GoPro footage of Ore 2 Shore 2013, about thirty minutes into the race we ran into a freight train just sitting on the train tracks. There were about 150 racers backed up, with more and more coming from behind. A few people carried their bikes over the train. Eventually we bypass the train by riding around it, but there was a huge delay. After talking with a few guys who got past the train before it blocked the trail, it seems that the first 50-60 riders made it past.
