Happy Halloween - here are some spooky photos of an abandoned mine to continue showing you some of the history of my part of the world. This is the famous Independence Mine near Cripple Creek. You have to be very careful walking around these old mines and stay on the marked paths because there are unmarked shafts and holes which can kill.

I spent some time not long ago looking at the mining history of my area, viewing the surface remains of several old mines, and descending into a formerly-active mine and an active surface mine. Here's a teaser, as this topic will take up several posts.

This photo was taken from our front porch on Saturday, it seems that the weeks of blue skies finally ended. We may even see some snow on Thursday before we warm up for the weekend. It's not B&W, the colors are natural.
