My Photos Over The Years In Cripple Creek, CO In Teller County


Cripple Creek, CO Cripple Creek, Colorado

I'll be honest: Most of the time, I tend to visit Cripple Creek only when I am hosting visiting friends or family. The casinos is usually the lure. Back in the day, Cripple Creek, along with nearby Victor, were once comparatively large cities in Colorado. Each had major districts for the mining of gold and other precious metals.

On this page are all of my photos of Cripple Creek. This town does have more to offer besides gambling. There is plethora of old settlement history, some active mining that happens today and scenic roads in the mountainous country of southern Teller County.

Below are my photos in chronological order. -Steve

My Dad bought a Cripple Creek hat for eight bucks. Nice! (UPDATE: Rest in peace, Dad. We miss you!)

    On a visit in 2003, I had to get a picture of myself at the Brass Ass Casino in the *rear* of the building. I know ... I know ... how immature but I love the "ass" theme throughout the casino! :D

    My friend Jesse and I went together. There he is, playing nickel slots.
