The Gold Mine Loop Victor, Colorado

An Abandoned Ranch building.









Old weathered wood smothered in snow throughout the winter shows decades of destruction.








In the distance, the horses graze oblivious to the yellow trees behind them.








The town of Victor nestled in a valley is only a few blocks long but shows the historic richness of the gold rush.





The slag pile above the left over mine equipment.









All the buildings are red brick.  Brick was and is not available locally in Colorado.  What wealth it required to build multi-story brick buildings in the middle of the wilderness of southern Colorado in the 1890’s.










Even an abandoned streetcar left as a reminder of the past.











All is Vanity.
