Ah. . .Friday. . .one of our less successful days of playing tourist while Curtis and Brenda were visiting. . .
Cripple Creek Colorado. . .
We brought our boys here in 1988. . .and loved it so much,
I just had to go back and see it again. . .or so I thought.
After driving about an hour or so from Colorado Springs to the original
this was the view of town with the Rockies in the background. . .beautiful, isn’t it?
and a pretty historical area. . .what you can’t see in this picture
is that every other storefront is now a casino. . .
so, if you are into gambling. . .you would probably enjoy a day in Cripple Creek. . .
We enjoyed the architecture and the setting of the town. . .
but it was so different than what we remembered. . .
we didn’t stay very long.
This is the Baptist Church, located about a block off Main St. . .
established in 1898. . .beautiful building.
The Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine still does tours. . .
This is one of the things we had done with the boys
all those years ago. . .so didn’t really feel the need to do it again. . .
but if you are interested in how things work. . .you would really like it. . .
and if you are 10 years old. . .like our boys were at the time. . .
you would, of course, love it. . .
If you are close to Cripple Creek, you should go and see it. . .
If you’ve been to Cripple Creek, we would love to hear your
thoughts about it. . .so leave us a comment. . .
Have a great day. . .and happy travels. . .
