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

Sedona Arizona and Beautiful Northern Arizona Destinations Full Length HD Video
This is the second half of an HD movie I filmed of Sedona, Arizona and vicinity.This disc includes;Cathedral rock, Airport Vortex, Bell Rock Vortex, Montezuma Castle, Montezuma Well, Tuzigoot, Flagstaff, Prescott, Sunset Crater and Wupatki. I made it, and turned it into a Blu-ray disc, for a disabled friend.
She can't go on Arizona trips like this anymore, so I thought I'd bring it to her. This half has breathtaking HD views from the Sedona Vortexes. I tried to create the feeling of actually visiting the vortexes and surrounding places of interest. I don't promise that it's perfect or flawless, but I'm pretty happy with it. As with the other Sedona movie, you might want to mute the sound and play you're own favorite tunes in the background.
NOTE: Near the end of the video you will notice that the audio is absent. Altough i was told that the music used in my video creation program was copyright and royalty free, and fine to use for all my videos, the actual creator of this music contacted youtube and said I was violating their copyright so i just removed it. Also, i'm dumping that video program for good.
Anyways,from now on I will only use music in my videos that is provided by Youtube, and is actually and absolutely free.
