Description: This phenomenal  scene shows the aspen in full Fall Color at Gillette Flats- outside of Cripple Creek. The broken wagon makes this an Iconic Colorado Location. There is plenty of Parking, at leat 270⁰ views- and across the road is the best natural spring water you’ll ever taste! Taken in cloud light (luck of the draw) but glows like fire in full sun.

Description:       The city of Cripple Creek was almost the capital of Colorado. During the Gold Rush days over 50,000 people lived in the District. Still in the shadow of the Gold Mine- Cripple Creek still has one of the most significant Gold Mines in America. The city was built and burned down twice- so it is now populated with 19th & early 20th century stone architecture. The city has legal gambling, but has not lost that ‘turn of the century’ feel.
