Recorded July 12, 2014
My sister and I made a short visit to Georgetown for lunch after finishing our trip to the top of Mount Evans.
The historic town of Georgetown is a former silver mining camp along Clear Creek in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The town has a population of just over 1000 people. The town sits at an elevation of 8,530 feet and is nestled in the mountains near the upper end of the valley of Clear Creek in the mountains west of Denver along Interstate 70. Although a small town today, the town was a historic center of the mining industry in Colorado during the late 19th century, earning the nickname the Silver Queen of Colorado. It has evolved into a lively historical summer tourist center today with many preserved structures from the heyday of the Colorado Silver Boom.

Surrounded by the Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest, the village of Estes Park has spectacular mountain scenery at every turn. Fishing, biking, horseback riding, river rafting, hunting, hiking and skiing are all possibilities in Estes Park, which is 103km (64 miles) northwest of Denver. Wildlife tours in the surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park offer the chance to see elk, moose, marmots, pikas, coyotes and big horn sheep.
Lying in a spectacular mountain valley, 72km (45 miles) west of Denver, Georgetown is a historic mining town maintained and restored in turn-of-the-century style. The town's highlight in summer is the steam-powered Georgetown Loop Railroad, which gives you an exceptional opportunity to see the Clear Creek Valley area. The train curves down a mountain ledge covering 183m (600ft). In its course, the train crosses over three bridges, including the 30m (100ft) Devil's Gate Bridge. There's also the option to take a walking tour of the Lebanon Silver Mine, which is the railway's halfway point.
From Georgetown, the famous Rocky Mountain National Park is a short drive away on the I-40.

Cripple Creek (3), Colorado, United States.
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005, gold mining camp
For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock).
On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller Bob Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909.
In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896.
By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities.
During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps. The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives.
Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado.
The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts.
With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows.
Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs
