My first real UE in Colorado, a toxic ghost town high above the Eagle River. I got off to a late start and with only a few hours to spare before the long drive home I ran around snapping as many pictures as I could (Over 200 in the end) Unfortunately I was using my dinosaur of a phone to take the pictures so I tried to keep only the best. With so much left to see and such little time I decided to return the following weekend much earlier in the day, the hike in is long and beautiful so getting a head start is a good idea. This site is amazing for first timers and veterans alike so I hope you enjoy my photo set, I will post the return trip after I sort through the shots.
(Part 2 will contain the best of this place, Bowling alley, Medical center, and more!)
I apologize but the pictures uploaded in reverse to the order that they were taken.

Wikipedia says: "The townsite is a victim of vandalization, and the town's main street is heavily tagged. There are only a few intact windows left in town, as twenty years of vandalism have left almost every glass object in the town destroyed."
Is that true? Effing douchenozzle turdlettes tagged this epic site up? That just makes me sick. Ugh. Kids have just zero respect today.
Still must have been a cool explore. Hugely jealous - always had a thing for ghost towns and mines, since I was very little. Unfortunately, Wisconsin really has neither. The only underground mine I know of is very tightly sealed since 4 young boys got lost in there a few years ago. We do have ghost towns listed, but they were mostly absorbed by neighboring towns. There are a couple true ghost towns, but literally nothing but some overgrown foundations.
I need to move to CO. Or NV, AZ, NM.....
Thanks for sharing - great pics - keep it up!
Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.
