Abandoned Buildings of Colorado #1

As I started to plan my travels to Colorado, I began to think about photography opportunities. I have always been fascinated with abandoned buildings, and each time I stopped to look at one, I loved to picture the lives that may have once been lived inside. I would wonder what caused this building to no longer be lived in. Each building has a fascinating story to tell, but usually, it is only up to the viewers imagination, and the items left behind to tell the tale.

This is a house on the Million Dollar Highway between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado. It is located directly across the highway from an old mine.

The abandoned vehicle, and electrical work inside the house indicate that it might be from the 1950’s or 1960’s.

The scenery around this building is absolutely breathtaking.

This building is easily accessible, and walking down to see it up close involved just a short hike.
