Left behind from the Gold Rush??? Well this one may not be that old...
Turn back the clock to the late 1800’s. The young United States was full of opportunity, heart ache and tears. Railroads, cattle and gold all played key roles in the story.
In Colorado, gold was discovered in the mountains just to the west of Colorado Springs. During the peak of the gold rush, there were over 500 mines in the area which is referred to as the Cripple Creek Victor Mining District. Gold made millionaires of a few men. It has provided jobs for thousands of others.
Today, if you want to step back in time or just see some gorgeous Colorado country side - be sure to visit the Cripple Creek/ Victor Mining District. I'm hoping to that way this weekend with a camera in hand.
Colorado: See It. Experience It. Live It.
