Led by Zebulon Miracle, Curator, Gateway Canyons Resort

No one captures the rags-to-riches story of the Uranium Boom like Charlie Steen. Down to his last dollar, he struck it rich at the Mi Vida mine and became an icon in the industry and power player in Moab and Grand Junction. On this trip we will explore the story of uranium mining on the Colorado Plateau and retrace Steen’s steps from Cisco to Mi Vida to Moab. Before heading back to Grand Junction, we’ll have a tour and dinner at Steen’s Moab mansion, now the Sunset Grill.

$140/Museum member; $150/Non-member
