Gamble - Explore - Live it Up!

As the violins fade up and out... I have to announce that this site is done when the domain name expires. I know, I know, I'm sad too. At least it's a great portfolio piece and I've achieved one of my goals - I learned a lot about website development. I'll continue to create and study more online. Please wish me luck! Since I'm a project manager by trade, it's proper to wrap things up with lessons learned.

Remember, remember just last September.

Up on Cripple Creek

A little town almost two miles above sea level and typically above the clouds at 9,494 feet. Located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, it's southwest of the majestic Pikes Peak, altitude 14,115 feet. The Sangre de Cristo range is to the east. The scenery is incredible and the donkeys are not only friendly, but they're kinda famous.

There's a rich "gold rush" history to explore, museums to investigate, and mine tours including the old haunted kind and newer operations. Just for fun, try an old-fashioned melodrama at the Butte Theater. Or take a ride on the train back to the past. Check out the Midland Railroad video and more with the Unofficial Guide of things to do.
