Visitor Tips and News About Tour A Gold Mine Still Gold-Lined
Lots of history here and rustic scenery, including an old, exploded plane [which appeared in the movie 3000 Miles To Graceland]! I'm a HUGE roadside America user and this was truly up there with the best.[Jason, 02/01/2011]
The former Techatticup mining camp in Eldorado Canyon contains old buildings, a museum of sorts, and a mine that still harbors over a million in gold -- but the cost to remove it would probably exceed its value.
