WORKING STEAM ENGINES! Western Museum of Mining and Industry, Colorado Springs, Colorado
 
02:04
Western Museum of Mining and Industry Colorado Spring, CO. You can see steam engines in action. This museum has working steam engines from the late 1800's that are on display. During the tour the docent operates the engines but instead of steam, these antique engines are driven by compressed air. Even so, they are still noisy and a pair of ear plugs will keep your hands free if you want to take video at the Western Museum of Mining. video taken with a Gopro 3+ Google+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/104574517412194077128/+captmoonbeam

Wild West Ghost Town Colorado Springs Walkthrough
 
04:03
A complete walkthrough of the interior of the Ghost Town Museum of the 1800s! The Ghost Town Wild West Museum in Colorado Springs, CO is a throwback in time and a fun way to learn about history and this Wild Era! (This Footage is a Small Part of the Bigger Video - To watch, visit http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColoradoTV) Turn Your Watch Back 100 Years! As a true preservation of Colorado's western past, Ghost Town Museum is a fun and historic look back at kind of old west town that used to dot this region during the late1800's and early 1900's "An Authentic Ghost Town" Selected by Mobile Travel Guide and Family Circle Magazine as one of the fifty-five special attraction of America. See the USA Travel Edition Recognition of Merit. Explore the boardwalk connecting the Blacksmith's shop, Saloon, General and Merchants of main street, with the Livery Stable, and Victorian Home. Each is filled with thousands of fascinating artifacts. Ghost Town Museum delights young and old with lots of hands on activities, including old time arcades, panning for real gold (summer months), and much, much, more. - See More at http://www.YouTube.com/AboutColoradoTV Ghost Town History Ghost Town Museum was created in 1954 to preserve a piece of Colorado's Wild West heritage. In 1858 the cry "Pikes Peak or Bust" opened up the heartland of the Colorado territory to the gold prospector. Gold mining became a significant factor that led to the statehood of Colorado. The miners and the people who provided services to them quickly populated the western frontier of the United States. They needed transportation, and before long the twin steel ribbons of the railroads were pushing into the mountains to transport ore for processing. Towns sprang up overnight and by the 1860's and 1870's people had blanketed the west. It was a rough and tumble time. Small encampments became small towns. Small cities along the rocky mountain Front Range provided a central location for supplies and services. The search for gold drove prospectors to every mountain valley, and every mountain peak. If gold or silver were not located, or if the mines played out, the towns were often abandoned to become ghost towns. Little by little the raw spirit of the frontier died down. By the time gold was discovered in Cripple Creek in 1891, the "frontier" was almost gone. Today almost nothing remains of those exciting days of the old west. A scattered pile of old lumber, a tumbled pile of rocks marking an old mine, an occasional wagon wheel or a piece of equipment. The rip roaring camps of 100 years ago have become ghost towns now only a memory of a bygone era.

Mining For Colorado Gemstones! Secret Fluorite Vein!
 
04:28
Fluorite is the second-most popular mineral in the world among mineral collectors next to quartz. Famed for its enormous range of colors, it is often referred to as "the most colorful mineral in the world." But fluorite is not just another pretty stone; it has a number of fascinating properties and some very useful industrial applications. Fluorite (also called fluorspar) is the mineral form of calcium fluoride, CaF2. It belongs to the halide minerals. It crystallizes in isometric cubic habit, although octahedral and more complex isometric forms are not uncommon. ENJOY THIS VIDEO? SUPPORT US WITHOUT PAYING A DIME! SUBSCRIBE!

Treasure hunting, more crystals and fluorite, Colorado 2018 - what do gold dirt rocks look like?
 
19:18
No music in this one, there is a magical blue crystal cave however with a little pond in it and hundreds of blue and clear crystals. Its just for fun, the majority of the video is learning, talking and sharing on rocks and minerals, treasure hunting and rock hounding. I could use some input on if this looks like a good area to be hunting for gold. The quartz doesn't look right to me, for gold, but the red dirt and orange and black on the rocks?

Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum - The View out the Window
 
10:00
This animation, titled "The View from our Window", shows the geologic history of Golden, Colorado as seen through a large picture window in the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum. The video was developed for the visitors to museum to illustrate how the geology of the Golden area changed through geologic time when looking north from the window. Version 1 was displayed in the museum in early 2006; this version was significantly upgraded with version 2 (shown here) in November 2013. The video is designed to introduce and complement the Geology Walking Trail on campus. Video illustrates: (1) the formation of Precambrian metamorphic rocks (1.8 Ga); (2) latest Cretaceous delta plain and forest (68 Ma); (3) eruption of Table Mountain basalt (64 Ma); (4) erosion of the Golden area (14 Ma to present), (5) White Ash Coal Mine, and (6) the walking geology trail through the Upper Cretaceous outcrops in the clay pits. Video by James Adson, Joseph Rogers, Eric Lobato, Jay Austin, Paul Weimer, and Paul Bartos. A special thanks to Ian Miller, James Hagadorn, Kirk Johnson (all DMNS), and Bob Weimer for their technical input. Interactive Geology Project, University of Colorado-Boulder. igp.colorado.edu

Our Family Trip to the Colorado School of Mines Museum - Day 429 | ActOutGames
 
06:40
Our family trip to the colorado school of mines museum was a surprisingly fun side trip on our way to my play rehearsal. I learned a lot about minerals and gemstones, got to touch a meteroite and saw a rook from the moon. It was a very educational trip but also a lot of fun. ======================= Like my videos? - Subscribe here - http://goo.gl/yu3Zxt When Presley of ActOutGames was seven years old, her parents were using many of the amazing educational resources available on YouTube as part of her home school experience. She liked to learn from folks like Hank and John Green, and also enjoyed watching daily vlog creators like CTFxC and the Shaytards or lets play channels like Chuggaaconnory. Her love of YouTube led her parents to encourage her to start her own channel to show that she can do anything she sets her mind to. As with everything else in her life, Presley jumped in with both feet and started shooting a daily vlog that has now gone on for well over a year without missing a single day. She mixes in home school lessons, an occasional how to episode, museum visits, book review and movie review segments, educational toys, cosplay, travel, Minecraft, Doctor Who, Lootcrate, and anything else that happens to be going on in her life that day. Her goal is to grow her channel to the point where she can have her own signing table at a future VidCon.
