Is he a miner? I really like the stonework in that building behind him.
I guess I could have read the title before I commented! I must have not been awake yet.
I did the same thing you did, Lois...figured it was a miner, then read the title.It's a fine sculpture...and I think it's nice to give attention to the miners who had a very difficult life!
Telluride used to be a mining town before it became a skiing and rock climbing town?
Oh yes!! Mining was what originally brought people to this part of Colorado. The population was as big as it is today. There should be some photos somewhere here of the Pandora Mine. This summer I will go up to Savage Basin to the ghost town of Tomboy where AMAZINGLY people mined year-round in the early 1900's at an elevation of over 11,000 feet. They dealt with a ton of snow!
