Ghost town of Ashcroft, Colorado, south of Aspen. It was founded as a silver mining town in 1880, grew to 3500 people, six hotels and twenty saloons...and then crashed five years later when the price of silver dropped out.

Not an entire ghost town, but this whole city block is dead, and has been for a long time.

The remains of the Cook Bank building, Rhyolite, NV. Possibly the most famous ghost town building in the Western US. This along with the caboose photo were taken in April 2011.

Found this heading up to Page last year. Though its not built into a mountain, it reminds me of the Tonto National Mnmt. that I posted above and I wonder what will be left of it in 800 years.

Ooh!


The 'Living Enrichment Center'. Once a large church in my home town, now abandoned. Set on part of the property that used to be Damnash mental hospital. Great place.
