On our way up to and back from Breckenridge, we stopped in to check out this place and they have one of the best museums I've seen in Colorado. Hope you enjoy some of these;

on the way up...

Nice pics; know every shot every angle of space practically between Breck- Alma, Jefferson( Lost creek) Mosquito range- ,Kenosha (Michigan Creek) Bailey.-Denver, Jefferson Park. Jeffferson (South Park ) my back route almost twice weekly between Aspen and Denver. .home to big brownies, my favorites 4-Oclock to Twin Cone Peaks.. antelope, last natural bison herd, and of course the Brown Burro .heads up Lisa in Malibu. Been driving ,hiking ,biking, fishing you name it in that area for over thirty years. The last time I was at that museum was with my grandfather on my mom's side nmid 1990's. he had been touring the 285 span since 1920. The last ,of the the last of the TRUE OLD SCHOOL.

Might contribute some video and pics. in the future. Too lazy and buzzed to look now, last place June17th 2011 I took my good buddy George(my beloved friend,dog-God) right before he passed routinely. He and I alone hit virtually every square inch within thirty five square miles of South Park within two years well after I had done so alone before his time.. I may throw out some pics, but rest assure I won't tell anyone where they are exactly. The last of the last of.

Great photos, McGowdog! I spent almost 4 years living a stone's throw away from that museum! I'm ashamed to say that I've never actually been to it either. I was much younger then and didn't appreciate history. One of these days, I will have to make an effort to get there.

I really miss the beauty of South Park and the Mosquito range. Sigh....

sublime vistas and thought-provoking nostalgia. i wonder if the difficulties of living allowed
them to fully appreciate their surroundings. i guess only their diaries would tell us.
will future folks find nostalgia or revulsion in denuded peaks, dry streambeds, remnants of strip malls, parking lots, skyscrapers, paved roads, and rusting auto bodies?

Thanks to all for the pictures. The form, and function of life on the frontier has always intrigued me. These were really outstanding pictures.
