Welcome to Cripple Creek

While that bounty has been all but scoured, and yesteryear's saloons and brothels have closed their doors, the theme of striking it rich still resonates, only today it's with the chiming of slot machines.

If you're not a gambler and have some time to spare, a trip to this unfortunately named town is worthwhile, if only to imagine what life was like out here way back when, and to gawk at the stunning scenery as you drive in.
