It was like most of this neat city was still back in the gold rush days. It was such a cool place. Many, many casinos! Just a fun place to be.

We've been visiting that area for many years. The elevation of Cripple Creek is over 9,000 feet. Snow may be expected most anytime during the Fall, Winter, or Spring.
