I thank Jerry for his very interesting article on Cripple Creek. My mother visited her uncle there, who was circuit judge for many years in the late 1800s and early 1900s. We visited Cripple Creek and Victor in 1956. It had been 50 years since mother had been there, and she could hardly imagine that this was the same place. We drove over to Victor and saw one human being and one dog.
The drive up from Colorado Springs is indeed a sight one won't forget, but much time was saved returning on the highway. Thanks for a most interesting reminder.
