Colorado's Ghost Towns, (Plus several other states) just plain old Ghost Towns, Mining towns, Gold Mines, Silver Mines, Cliff Dwellings, Indian Ruins, Indian Cultural sites, Mining Camps, Old West History, Outlaws, Good Guys, Bad Guys, Gunfighters, Cowboys, Historical Buildings. You name it, Colorado has it. Check out some of the Colorado Ghost Town photos of Ghost Towns in some of our nearby states like Arizona, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.  Even those far away places like Alaska and the Yukon have their beauty and Ghost Towns.

There is more to explore here in Colorado and North America then I will ever be able to see and do but I will keep trying. Perhaps you should come and give me some help. Should make for an interesting Colorado vacation.

This is my hobby, exploring any old ghost town. This hobby provides a service for my sanity.  Into everyone's life there needs to be some balance and a place for a person to renew themselves. This is where I share my hobby. The Rocky Mountains of Colorado and all of it's precious Ghost Towns. 

Everyone's definition for Ghost Towns is different.  I had a Colorado resident write in and say, "Ouray Colorado for example is not a ghost town by a long shot".

I wrote back with this response.

"I would tend to agree with your statement if your definition of a  ghost town is an abandoned town. Several of the sites like Leadville, Creede, Empire, Niwot, Georgetown etc are similar to Ouray.

On my site I refer to Ghost Towns rather liberally. Basically it can be any town involved in mining, supply towns for the mines, or agricultural activity that went thru various cycles of boom and bust. These towns and others that are important to the history of Colorado and the old west. I apologize if I have offended you."

Likewise - please forgive me if my Ghost Towns don't measure up to your definition. Like my pappy used to say, "we all got opinions".

Hope you enjoy your visit here. Come back Soon.
