Abandoned Buildings of Colorado #2

This building is right on the most eastern part of Silver Cliff, Colorado. Silver Cliff was once a booming mining town known, of course, for its silver. The building pictured is very close to the old silver mine. IMG_1739 IMG_1736

One thing I’ve realized as I take pictures of these old buildings is that they have become home to many animals. As I shot pictures here, I startled a deer. She came darting out of the grass, and I don’t know who was more scared, me or her.


Continuing east towards Hardscrabble road, there are many abandoned buildings, and areas where towns once stood. The Wet Mountain Valley is dotted with homesteads of ranchers looking to feed their cattle on the luscious green grass.

Down towards Beulah, Colorado there is an old ranch property with some beautiful buildings.

This property also had another furry guest waiting for me. I was greeted by a beaver with his teeth out, and looking for some action. Fortunately, as I was not wood, and did not pursue him any further, we both went our separate ways.
