For something diff... If you can hang in there until the last 40sec. of this 3:19 ride vid, there are "then" pics with the "now" video, pausing at the semi-ghost town of Eldora.... a boom and bust community from the flare and fade of productive mines...



Back when inmates were sentenced to "hard labor", the nearby residents at the Canon City State Prison constructed this amusement park like road called Skyline Drive.


I found the photo above after taking the photo below. If ever in the Canon City area, ride this thing. The one way road with its blind rises will leave you with your stomach in your throat if you gas it a bit.


Downtown Steamboat Springs 1945...


Now if I could have climbed to the second floor of the store behind me I could have come a bit closer...
