Childhood and fool’s gold
As children growing up in the 1950s in a rural area west of Denver, Colorado, my brother and I were fascinated by the Old West. A favorite adventure was to ride our bikes to the foot of South Table Mountain -- a mesa that lay between our house and the old mining town of Golden. We’d stash our bikes and hike around, examining rocks and playing at being old-time prospectors. There were washes running down the slopes from the top of the mesa. After summer storms, runoff was sometimes heavy enough to clear the washes and expose the rocks and gravel in their beds. We’d sort through newly exposed rocks and gravel, looking for gold!
