    Default Updates to Rocky Mountain Profiles site

    With this update you get several new ghost towns. Cerrillos, Madrid, Golden, San Miguel all in New Mexico and a Fort on the Santa Fe Trail. THANKS to all of you that have signed my guest book and left comments. Many of you have direct connections to some of the Ghost Towns on the site. Always nice to see that people appreciate their history. I have begun posting some of those comments on the pages.

    How does one get to Chinese Camp you mentioned on your website? It doesn't look like you can drive in.

    I seriously doubt that it's possible to get even the most hardcore 4WD rig into Chinese Camp anymore. A bunch of us from Hawthorne made a few 4WD trips in and they were pretty much all day evolutions with lots of winching. That was pre-1980 so I can only imagine what the trail looks like today.

    In case any of you care !!!

    You might want to look up the TV schedule for this:Science Channel (Discovery)
    Geologic Journey
    The Rockies
    TV-G, CC

    See how the Rocky Mountains were formed and how people fought to carve out a living in the mountain townships and the vast prairies beyond.

    This is one of the documentaries I worked on last year. I was the advisor for locations and filming sites in Colorado.

    It was fun watching the Canadian Geologist looking for gold.

    I also updated my site as I was back in my office for three weeks recently.

    Added comments to many pages from readers that sent in stories about their ancestors, where they lived and worked. Here is an example - http://www.rockymountainprofiles.com...20Colorado.htm

    Like RockCrusher said, very tuff getting in there. I would not even attempt with a rock crawling rig. I have failed with a quad and a Rokon, but will be making another attempt through a creek bed on my next trip. we plan on taking quads in as far as possible, then continueing on foot. Unfortunately this is the wrong time of the season to be walking back in there because of the high concentration of rattlesnakes. I think we will wait till late sept. early oct.

    I guess it depends on what you call the actual site of Chinese Camp. I met Drifter going into the area a few years ago, and had a couple of pretty bad spots to negotiate in the Jeep, but made it quite a ways back in there. Come on Drifter! are a few rattlers going to stop you from maaking the trip?
