Cripple Creek and Victor

I've written a number of times about mining buildings in Colorado and their remarkable presence in the landscape.  Most of those buildings were located around the Central City/Blackhawk area of Gilpin County.  On a recent trip to Cripple Creek and Victor I was able to see an incredible number of remarkable structures, abandoned relics of a heady time.
