Jim and I had the great pleasure of driving to Colorado to dig with the Dorris family (from the tv show “The Prospectors”). We brought along two friends from our hometown.
The Sky Hawk is just down from the Smoky Hawk claim.

Thank you Gail for the photos. I find the TV show quite interesting because it shows how difficult it is to find minerals.

Have a nice and safe day.

Dany.
