金矿!1858年在当地发现金矿之后,就像加州10年前的情况一样,许多淘金客纷纷涌入。这些矿工还在当地发现其他丰富的矿藏,并且在那里持续开采多年。一直要到1940年代,奥瑞郡 (Ouray County) 山上的溪流都因为开采金矿的渣屑而变成黄色。从这张照片里就可以看到黄色的溪水。此外,开垦者也发现科罗拉多州拥有许多美丽的风景。

Gold! The 1858 discovery of gold caused a population boom, just like it did in California 10 years earlier. The miners found other profitable minerals as well and continued to mine for many years. As late as the 1940s, mountain streams in Ouray County ran yellow because of the residue (tailings) from the gold mills. You can see the golden river in this photo. Settlers also discovered Colorado's exquisite natural beauty.
