Description:  This view on Teller County Road 1 from Florissant to Cripple Creek is the backside of Mueller State park. It displays the huge granite mountain cores that create many “balancing rocks”. An actual cattle field: if Cows enjoy the view, then these are the happiest ones in Teller County.

Very little traffic on this road except at mine shift changes.    YOUR CAR HERE!   The reverse is a large area suitable for parking. NOTE: This is the first time a Camera Map has been approximate: the Mine has moved roads around and Google just hasn’t figured that out yet.
