My dad and I traveled around Colorado during two summers. We tried our luck as gold miners in the river. We explored abandoned mines and ghost towns. This is the video of that time. Part documentary, part family chronicle. Part 1. In Spanish and English with Spanish subtitles. There’s drinking. There’s playing with dirt by the river. There’s driving a white van (yes, kidnapper-style) up and down the Rockies. And there’s the people we met. Some part historian, others part miner, many part character from a different era.
