Meet Colorado Bob Ross
‘Colorado Bob’ Ross, genuine prospector and part owner of the Bessie G Mine (located in La Plata County, Colorado) is offering up some mighty fine field trips for those of you hankering to do some rock hunting or prospecting. You may have seen Colorado Bob on the hit show ‘Prospectors’ on The Weather Channel.
Well, Bob’s been doing this rock gig for a mighty long time—just ask locals in the greater Four Corners area, including the Geological staff at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Co. Bob Ross is their go-to-guy for answers about rocks, gems or minerals they find and want to know more about. But that’s exactly what Bob loves doing—educating people about how rocks tell the story of our evolution through space and time, and specifically, the importance of preserving these irreplaceable time capsules from the past.
So, with true Southwestern hospitality, we invite you to check out our tours offering a rare opportunity to spend quality time with Durango’s favorite tour guide, Colorado Bob Ross. Whether it’s prospecting in the heart of the Rockies or searching in the high desert for a rare nugget from the past, Colorado Bob will help you learn about the Earth, one rock at a time.
As Colorado Bob gently reminds folks on his tours, “Every rock is a snowflake. There’s only one like it in the entire world. So, if you pick a rock up to take home, you are responsible for its care as the one-of-a-kind treasure it is for as long as you possess it. Once they’re gone—they’re gone forever. It’s up to us to be the caretakers of what is left while we still can.”
