Documentary Overview

– Breaking the Mold –

PROJECT OVERVIEW

As part of a WSCU Extended Studies Summer Education Series, Bruce and Duane will guide professionals, history and geology buffs as well as lifelong learners through a sold-out San Juan Mountain mining tour returning for its 12th year. Along the way, they will share their wisdom on Colorado history, geology, business, human nature, and the environment. From scenic peaks in Telluride and Ouray, to winding trains from Durango to Silverton, and mines along the way, this film inspires visually and emotionally. Bruce, at 82 years old, and Duane, at nearly 80 years old, have continued to inspire generations, from businessmen to olympic athletes, breaking the mold set for their own lives and for those that are lucky enough to have them as professors, mentors, fellow Coloradans and friends.
