No blog post today, only pics to click.
I love antique gingerbread houses.

Well,the header photo today took my breath away. Oh my. Looking forward to seeing Cripple Creek as it is. Oh wait, Maybe that's not the town I'm think of. I'm thinking of town at the end of Phantom Canyon road, when it was a track going north up from the highway going west out of Pueblo. Another little old mining town.

Couldn't help it. Sleepy as I am. Looked it up. Victor. Not Cripple Creek, which was on a through highway. So anytime you want to go to Victor, you'll have at least one interested viewer. Ha.

Thank you Judith, I had my breath taken away a lot on this mini-vacation, and I think the clouds had a lot to do with that. And since the clouds hung around the whole time I was there the only time I got to see bright blue skies was as I was leaving.

I'm pretty sure Victor is where we toured an historic bordello. :)

You could be right Linda, Cripple Creek and Victor had more than their share of bordellos. Both of them were big train towns, not only because of passenger trains, but trains hauling gold ore down the mountain to the Golden Cycle Mill in Colorado Springs, which at one time was the largest gold mill in the country, so there was lots of trains coming and going through both Cripple Creek and Victor, and you know how those train guys are!!!
