Abandoned Train Car

This old, decaying train car has been seen around the house for over a decade, as it was one of my mother’s favorite painting subjects.

This beautiful piece of history is only improving with age, and sits high in the mountains of Colorado outside the mining town of Victor.

Ventures out into the mountain and rural life of farms and mining towns are always interesting.  You never know what you’ll find!

Cripple Creek & Victor Mine

The side of an active mine that sits snuggly between the towns of Cripple Creek and Victor, for which it’s named.

It’s easily visible as you drive between towns, though the mine is much bigger than it seems.

Let’s see the beauty in the ugly.
