Cripple Creek Views

I've been showing some photos of the area's mining history. Here are views around the town of Cripple Creek, one of the main gold-mining towns. These days it survives mainly on legalized gambling - here's a view of the town itself.
It's situated in a very pretty, hilly area on the Western side of Pikes Peak.
There are only a couple of roads into town, but it's only a little over an hour from Colorado Springs.

  1. I assume the casinos attract people from out of town into Cripple Creek.
