Wat je gaat doen

It's the goats or "girls" as I call them that welcome you to the 59er's trail hike. They walk with you, around you and among you. Mimi is pregnant. BABY GOATS will join us on the trail in FEBRUARY 2020! We begin our tour at the STAGE STOP homestead 20 minutes from Boulder for our hike through history. Starting with a talk about the history of the area we will then walk through the pioneer homestead in Cloud City mining district. Then we set off on the miners’ trail up Arkansas Mountain, named for the Acansa Indians. Retracing the trail of the '59ers, we'll see old mine portals, the Cloud City school house, Cornish stone walls built to shore up hillsides, mine portals and donkey-cart chutes, blacksmith forge, and more. I'll point out blow holes where miners tested for gold and the triple pine tree trunks growing over old mining tunnels. The land reveals many secrets of our past when you know how and where to look. Along the way there will be time for photos and a trail stops for breathing and storytelling. Our hike ends at the STAGE STOP, where we began. The STAGE STOP was named for the blacksmith services offered to the mining community. A review, "The hike with Valerie and her goats was the highlight of our trip. We went to Boulder, when their location and her stories offered everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

The Stage Stops HERE! I've roamed Boulder County and beyond for over 50 years and now with GOATS! If generations count, both Jesse and my great grandparents traveled by wagon train to Colorado! I've written about old mining sites and brothels and located several while combing the miners' trails on Arkansas Mountain. I'm an avid reader of old west pioneer journals because I feel this desire to know who this people were that populate my imagination . I tell their stories as we retrace their steps along with the clopping and chomping of my goats as they accompany us on the trail of the '59ers

Waar je naartoe gaat

We hike the old Arkansas Mountain mining trail 20 minutes west of Boulder. Starting at an 1860's ranch, a little history, then we hit the trail with goats. Stops along the way reveal the lives of the '59ers; mines, school, tunnels and more. This is a singular opportunity to walk western history into sites unknown to the general public. Retracing & telling their story is the wellspring to the awareness that we share their human experience
