CC&V Mine Tours

Tour a Real Gold Mine from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum


Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The Museum, which is has operated in its current location for over 50 years, has been open weekends starting April and will open on a daily basis Saturday, May 27 at 9:30 a.m. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor.

 

Modern mine tours will start May 28 leaving from the Museum.  Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history - all tour proceeds go to the Museum to help offset operations and building renovation costs.

 

This summer the mine tours will be available May 28 through Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., daily except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 9 and 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during July weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person - an affordable way for the entire family to see a real working gold mine. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours. Please be sure to reserve your tour dates (June is the slowest and the best time to make a reservation) as they are very popular and fill up quickly.

Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies

Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies
Michael Johnson is the driving force behind Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies. Michael came to Colorado in 1977 from northern Kansas. He instantly fell in love with the mountains and Colorado and has spent countless days and nights exploring its majesty.

Michael got started in this endeavor in the 1990’s after finding 17″ footprints in the snow at Rampart Range during Thanksgiving break. In the same location, Mike had a Class 1 Bigfoot sighting when he saw a male Sasquatch in person.  This sighting was investigated by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO).
 
Being very comfortable in the woods, Michael is well adapted to search for the legendary creature in the most remote areas of Colorado, in all four seasons. Mike is a family man and is very spiritual, whether it be his religion or his search for his Indian heritage. He is painfully honest, which has been his biggest challenge in this field, much to his surprise. Mike is interested in both the scientific side and spiritual side of the Sasquatch Equation, which makes him a unique individual in the field today.

The Pikes Peak Historical Society invites you to learn more about Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies at their monthly Chautauqua (free program) on Sunday, June, 11th at 2:00 pm at the Florissant Library. The Library is located adjacent to the Florissant Community Park on 334 Circle Drive in Florissant.  This program is presented as a public service of the Pikes Peak Historical Society. Admission is free and refreshments are served.  No reservation is required but arrive early, seating is limited. For more information call 719-748-8259 or 719-748-3861.
