Mines look kind of pretty from above…

For more than a century, Leadville was to Western mining towns what the Rolling Stones were to rock ‘n’ rollers: the biggest, richest, wickedest and longest-lasting act around. It’s also among the highest, nearly two miles above sea level at the headwaters of the Arkansas River in central Colorado. Now, after an absence of a dozen years, mining may return to the Cloud City in 2012, if production is resumed at Climax Molybdenum.
