We were just passing through, stopping here and there, visiting museums and enjoying every minute in the sometimes dilapidated, run-down Ghost towns; and sometimes in the neatly painted and restored old roaring towns which have settled down to peaceful days. At each museum were displays of relics from the early mining days, and everyone of them had samples of GOLD. Quartz with GOLD. Pyrite with GOLD. GOLD pans, picks and shovels - and we were fascinated."
