Along the Alpine Loop that connects Silverton, Colorado and little Lake City is a ghost town/mine. The Ute Ulay at one time was a bustling silver mining camp.
The old boarding house still stands on the site of the Ute Ulay that was established when prospectors trespassed on Ute Indian land...prior to the Brunot Treaty of 1874 that would have given them the right of way to mine.
Thinking the Ute Chief (Ouray) would not bother them, if they honored him by naming the mine after him. Problem is they didn't know how to spell his name!Which proved not to be a problem since the camp was never attacked.
