Re: spanish peaks colorado

Bryan, I take it you're talking about the Spanish Peaks of Huerfano and Las Animas counties. You might want to visit the museum in La Veta. They have some information on mining in the area. Also, if you do, and are interested in arrow heads, be sure to see the extensive collection they have. Most were collected in the area. I've never collected minerals there, but legends abound about "lost" Spanish gold and silver mines. One area I have been tempted to collect from - I live in Alamosa just across La Veta Pass - is along Colorado Route 12, which winds through the Spanish Peaks region. Stonewall jasper and satin spar can be found there. Check out the location, and others around there, in Colorado Rockhounding by Stephen M. Voynick.
