Pictures from Cripple Creek

***The following pictures were taken in 2007 just shortly after we moved to Co. Springs.***

The train at Cripple Creek, which is located about 45 minutes from Colorado Springs. Cripple Creek was one of the biggest mining towns in America during the Gold Rush, and finished 4 votes behind Denver in an 1876 election to decide the State's capital.

Waiting for the train! Jaxson has always been a major train boy. Needless to say, this was the highlight of the trip.

Jaxson has already started digging for "GOLD."

The awesome scenery around Cripple Creek. Amazing mountain ranges!

Cripple Creek is an awesome mining town! If you like history and don't mind the altitude, Cripple Creek is a fun town to visit.

Thanks! We love going to Cripple Creek. There's so much neat history and the town does an excellent job of keeping thing as "old school" as possible.
