Cripple Creek, Co. Our first stop was the Heritage Center to get ideas about what to visit The view down the main drag- obviously rush hour doesn’t exist here (I stood in the middle of the street to get this shot!)! We rode the narrow gauge train; really a blast! A real steam engine, you could probably walk faster! Lots of coal smoke and steam; loved it! We visited the Cripple CreekJail Museum; it was an operating jail until 1992! The plush accommodations; one bathroom per floor! The opulent bathroom facility! Some interesting past guests too! There’s also a small herd of resident donkeys in town who have free reign wherever they want to wander; good beggars too but we had no carrots or apples. House for sale; fixer-upper, cheap! Colorful motel in town. The Mollie Kathleen Mining Museum in town.
