Summer 2017, Day 17: Exploring Lake City, CO (8/11/17)

We don’t have cell phone connectivity up at our dispersed camping location, so we came down into town to make our travel plans for the next few days.  It’s a cute little town:

Most of the roads up here are not paved, so people use ATVs and UTVs to get around:

We drove back up to our campsite, taking a few photographs of the Ute and Ulay mine complex.  Built in the late 1800s, the complex was one of the most productive silver and lead mines in Colorado, recovering minerals valued at over $280 million in today’s dollars.  The mines closed in the early 1900s:
