Poppy and Dude Explore Historic Breckenridge, CO: Episode 2

June, a tour guide and museum docent with Breckenridge Heritage Alliance, brings history to life as she and her four-legged friends, Poppy and Dude, explore our historic downtown. In this episode they check out the Blue River that runs through downtown (it's still a bit frozen now, but is flowing under the ice!). The river didn't look like this in the mining era when gold-gobbling dredge boats tore up the riverbed to extract riches hidden in the rocks. June explains the mining process and the stream restoration project to return the river to a more natural habitat. All historic images are from the Mather Archives.
