The old wagon road (nonmotorized) to the 7:30 Mine climbs steadily above Silver Plume, past relics of the silver boom of the 1880s.Bristlecone pine, lodgepole pine, and aspen line the trail. After 1.5 miles the trail becomes narrower, and occasionally you’ll have to duck under bristlecone pine branches while negotiating a side-sloping slippery route. The Griffin Memorial obelisk stands on a rock outcropping below the 7:30 Mine Road near the upper mouth of Brown Gulch. A tad farther up the narrow trail are two rusting boilers from the 7:30 Mine, the remains of which lie across the creek. Some people say you can still hear the sounds of his violin from the lofty rock outcrop 1, 250 feet above Silver Plume. While hiking up the 7:30 Mine Road to the Griffin Memorial, listen closely. Do you hear the sweet violin playing of Clifford Griffin’s ghost, or is it just the wind?
