Two Volcanoes - Different Outcomes

Two volcanoes – one in Guffey, one in Cripple Creek, only 10 miles apart, but with vastly different results. 34 million years ago, fine ash and volcanic mudflows erupting from the Guffey volcano created Lake Florissant and entombed insects, plants and trees to be discovered and examined in the 1870s by geologic and scientific expeditions. While 10 miles away, superheated water deposited gold from deep within the earth’s volcanic matrix into the Cripple Creek area that would result in the creation of millionaires, and mining for over a hundred years.

Today, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in Florissant, CO, showcases and preserves a collection of over 50,000 specimens that represent over 1,700 different species of animals and plants. The landscape of the park tells the story of ancient redwood forests, volcanic eruptions, and a climate that benefitted temperate and subtropical plants. Scientists are still researching the fascinating finds being revealed by the ancient shale.

Gold mining in the Cripple Creek District has been continuous since 1891, and has the possibility of many more years of production. Confined within the diatreme, or volcanic crater, the gold of the District once supported over 534 mines and made men rich. This 7 square mile area is now one large gold mine, Newmont, that supports employees and communities, and preserves the area’s mining history. Tourists come to marvel at the process of extracting gold from the volcanic rock, and geologists come to study the unique formation.

During the Ice Festival weekends, February 11 & 12, 18 & 19, the Friends of the Florissant Fossil Beds will join with Newmont to show you how these 2 nearby volcanoes brought about such divergent events. See fossils and rocks and other exhibits, and hear stories of how our past turmoil brought about great scientific discoveries and golden futures.

Hours for the event are 10:00 – 4:00 at the Cripple Creek & Victor Visitor Center, 371 E Bennett Avenue, (ELKS Building), Cripple Creek. Call 719-689-2341 or 719-689-4052 for more information. Activities for kids, and Door Prizes will be offered!

Fountain Community Theater, 737 Dale Street, Fountain, CO 80817
“Accidents will happen,” Jack Gunderson is fond of saying at work. “That’s not a good motto, Dad,” his son Trevor keeps telling him. He has a point, since the two run the Gunderson Driving Academy and especially because the business is just about to be closed down. When Officer Monica Palmer warns the father and son about their imminent loss unless they shape up, they protest she is exaggerating. “Your last student sideswiped a parade!” she points out. As if this weren’t enough on their plate, the Gundersons also have to contend with a lovesick student, a bank vice-president to plays the horses and Mac, a sinister character who only Jack can see. Trevor is at his wit’s end when one of their teachers quits, but quickly recovers when Joyce, a real cutie-pie, shows up. “Now what can lil ol’ me do for lil ol’ you?” he pants. Just when things seem to be picking up, the bank next door gets robbed. And guess who the major suspects are? You guessed it. Or have you? Lines fly faster than fleeing pedestrians when the police arrive along with a news crew. And just who IS Mac, anyway?
