Description: This is the Wheel house of the Gold Coin Mine- in beautiful downtown Victor, CO.  If the Steam Punk folks miss this, then they really blew their trip. These 12’ diameter “pulleys” dropped and lifted their cargo on a flat cable to  almost one-mile deep. This is truly: Victorian “High-Tech”. You can see the Gold Coin Club at extreme frame right of the main Pan.

Description:  A New Construction Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek- it’s design is quite compatible with the historic district. Typical of Cripple Creek- massive buildings on narrow 19 century streets makes photography  interesting. The Corvettes are optional.

Description:  The “Great Wall of Woodland Park” This is a road cut when entering Woodland Park from East Hwy 24. A very interesting color and erosional pattern makes this a photogenic section of Road.  It often has quite nice cloud shadow mottling. The amazing “ghost” car in the detail gives a good idea of scale.
