Arizona - Utah - Montana - Nevada - New Mexico Ghost Towns
Please enjoy the Ghost Towns of the west and respect their importance.
"Rocky Mountain Profiles is an awesome site - definitely deserving of the Old West Award."
Everyone's Definition for Ghost Towns is different. I had a Colorado resident right 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 that statement if your definition of a ghost town is an abandon town. Several of the sites like Leadville, Creede, Empire, 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 or agricultural activity that went thru various cycles of boom and bust and/or towns 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.
