Amazing Pizza! I ordered a build your own pizza from the Crippled Cow located in Bronco Billy’s Casino. It is amazing! I can not rave about this pizza enough. It is just what I was wanting, and the wood brick oven makes it taste like a million bucks! Price is not bad at all for the pizza (I built my own) it was under $15. That is with Garlic Parmesan sauce, bacon, pepperoni, and extra cheese. An amazing place to get pizza from! If you’re in Cripple Creek I would recommend stopping in a getting a slice or a whole pizza if you might want to share! They also have amazing orange soda on tap, along with Bier Works beer. Crippled Cow is a must have to me at least once a week I try to get there. Located on the corner of Bennett Ave and Second Street!

  I wonder how well this law was enforced?  The photo of this old sign was taken at the Cripple Creek District Museum which used to be Cripple Creek's train depot.  At one time, the Cripple Creek district had over 500 gold mines.   Cripple Creek is about an hour away from Colorado Springs. Thank you for reading my post!  Colorado Springs:  See It.  Experience It.  Live It.

Once upon a time, there was no such thing as a cell phone.      People that just HAD to stay connected wore pagers.   Most people were content with an answering machine at home.    If someone had an answering machine; that meant that they did not have a party line.    If someone needed to place a call, they used a phone in a telephone booth.    Just this last weekend, I found an old telephone booth in a museum.  The phone was so old that the hand set and mouth piece were separate.  Can you imagine conducting real estate business without a cell phone?    I stumbled across this old telephone booth at the Cripple Creek District museum in Cripple Creek, Colorado.  The Cripple Creek/Victor District was the home to over 500 gold mines at one time.  Cripple Creek is about an hour away from Col...

Left behind from the Gold Rush???  Well this one may not be that old...     Turn back the clock to the late 1800’s.    The young United States was full of opportunity, heart ache and tears.  Railroads, cattle and gold all played key roles in the story.  In Colorado, gold was discovered in the mountains just to the west of Colorado Springs.  During the peak of the gold rush, there were over 500 mines in the area which is referred to as the Cripple Creek Victor Mining District.  Gold made millionaires of a few men.  It has provided jobs for thousands of others.  Today, if you want to step back in time or just see some gorgeous Colorado country side - be sure to visit the Cripple Creek/ Victor Mining District.  I'm hoping to that way this weekend with a camera in hand.  Colorado:  See It. ...

  Cripple Creek is a former mining town not too far out of Colorado Springs.  A City that made many millionaires and kept many paupers in the late 1800s, it is fascinating and quirky and fun to visit.  Until the late 1990s it was a charming place – jewelry stores, saloons, old mining-type stores – just the kind of place that you would want to wander and stroll on a weekend afternoon.  But within the last decade or so, Cripple Creek was made into a gambling town, and all of the quaint and interesting shops have become casinos. Still a unique little town that is fun to visit, I recently packed the nieces and grandkids in the car and made a little trip ‘up the mountain’ to check on one of my listings.  They were totally enamored with the quaintness of the houses and the buildings and the i...

Donkey Derby Days in Cripple Creek was a huge success! Held July 25-26 in the historic mining community of Cripple Creek, the event drew thousands of people who came to eat, drink, but especially to see the donkey races!   The streets were lined with tents filled with every kind of merchandize imaginable. There were birdfeeders made from crystal plates and poultry feeders, a wide variety of clothing (children and adult), unique jewelry, artwork and food choices to suit any appetite. At noon, the crowds moved back from the street to allow the parade to march through. From bagpipes to hot cars, there was something for everyone.   The Donkey race was a riot to watch as teams tried to get their donkey to move from station to station where they had to complete a task before proceeding. One s...

Yesterday was a typical Easter for us in the High Country.  I woke early to let the dogs out, start the coffee and brush the demanding cat.  She won't shut up til I give in give her a good brushing.  It was, as usual, still dark outside.  I stoked the fire, glad to see the 20 yr old daughter that refuses to work had loaded wood into the fire before retiring, which is usually sometime right before I get up.  Then I sat down on the computer to pull up my e-mail and check my daily horoscope.  Typical daily routine for me. As the darkness lifted over the earth, I noticed it was lighter than usual along the ground lines....yes, it was snowing!  April 12th.  Easter.  Now, this isn't an unusual occurance for us living at 8500' along the Central Rockies.  In fact, its normal.  Many an Easter I ...

Sprintime in the Rockies!  A wonderful time of year!  Beautiful crisp clear days interspersed with howling blizzards!  Ain't it great!  We just had our first really serious blizzard here in the Central Mountain Area, all that snow you see on the news got stuck on them ski slopes and rarely made it here....until now.  This was really just a baby blizzard, really! When the news gabbed about it endlessly for days and predicted 1-2 ft of snow, folks in town got all excited!  We always do in a blizzard!  It could mean a couple of things to us....it could be a "whopper" where everyone is seriously stuck for days and even the snowplows run for cover!  It could be a "sorta whopper" where we may be stuck til the plow comes but folks that can are still going to work...Or, it could just fizzle out...

Continueing on with fun Fall things to do, this weekend and next is the annual Fall Festival in Cripple Creek, Colorado.  Barring an early mountain snow in the next 2 weeks the Aspens should be in all their golden glory making even the drive up worthwhile.  The festival is over the next 2 weekends and features wine and food tasting and a variety of live entertainment planned.  Apparently tickets are required to partake in the food and wine tasting.  Tickets are $25.00 and available here.
