My list seems to grow bigger every week or so....

Currently i'm reading "Some Dreams Die" (ISBN10: 0-942688-01-5, ISBN13: 978-942688-01-6) by Greg Thompson ( thinking about putting a trip together to search out some of the lost Spanish mines), next up: "House of Rain" (ISBN: 978-0-316-60817-6) by Craig Childs, A look into the ancient world of the Anasazi's or "Ancestral Puebloan". Need to read by April 2nd:D:cool:. Continuing with the list: "Stones into Schools" (ISBN:978-0-670-02115-4) by Greg Mortenson, "Out of the Dust" ( ISBN13: 978-1-55517-893-2. ISBN 10: 1-55517-893-6) , Utah's Lost Minse and Hidden Treasures by Stephen B. Shaffer, "Historic Photos of Colorado Mining" (ISBN: 978-1-59652-535-1), Text and Captions by Ed Rains (One of many books purchased to help with this years project:) ).

Do they talk about a Anasazi Dwelling at all? I've seen that name before.

Glad to see your getting some good reading in:cool:

Citadel is actually in North-Western Colorado! Phenomenal Elk hunting on top....too bad the perimeter is all private and access will cost you $'s!
