Each year Colorado Preservation Inc identifies a number of interesting and threatened buildings across the state. This year, prominent on the list, was a collective entry - the older advertising signs along Denver's Colfax Avenue.

RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION COST
Housing construction costs have risen sharply in the last few years. This means that not only the large, market developer home builder prices are up, but so are those of the small general contractors and all the associated trades - plumbers, carpenters, electricians, etc.
That is very apparent especially in Boulder.
I went down to the San Luis Valley to photograph some of the small village chapels that dot that flat, dusty landscape. So as I was driving around, I was keeping a keen eye out for any structures, like a steeple, that might pop up out of the surrounding buildings or clusters of wind-ravaged trees. As I approached Antonito, one of the larger towns on the west side of the Valley, a shining, luminous vision sparkled in the morning sunlight above the two-story town. Upon closer inspection I found what I later learned was Cano's Castle.
