The Delaware Hotel! We stayed there overnight in 2007, and carelessly ignored the sign in our room warning us that the effects of alcohol could be magnified at high altitude. Half of my cocktail at dinner was enough to make me tipsy!
A wonderful display of Architecture from bygone times. I love the way colours have been woven into the fabric of the buildings. Do many American (inc Canadian ) people define eras of History by the reigning Monarch of the time ?
Hi Garry. Regarding your comment, I think the Victorian era was one that was "special" in world history.

It had been a number of years since I'd seen a Checker cab. The last place I expected to find one was in the small mountain town of Leadville, Colorado. Leadville is situated over 10,000 ft above sea level, the town having morphed...
DrFumblefinger loves to visit old mining towns. Leadville, situated high in the Colorado Rockies, was once the second largest city in Colorado. Today it is a sleepy city whose Historic District offers an interesting window into the city's past
Leadville, Colorado is a fascinating small city to visit. Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 10,152 feet (3,094 m), it is the highest incorporated city in the USA. It lies near the headwaters of the...
