On this page are photos of Victor I've taken over the years. I also placed two videos above - one a great drivelapse, the other by me. Victor is one of those historic old towns that you'll either love or hate. It is very unpretentious. There are no glitzy casinos, expensive tourist attractions or five-star restaurants, but it does have stunning mountain views, motherlodes of Colorado mining history and the likes of ordinary "mountain people" who call this place home. Some of Victor's charm is that time seems to stand still there.

Adjacent Photos in December 2006 - Yesterday I spent the much of the day in Victor a small mining town in Teller County with an elevation of 9,693 feet. The top photo is the view from Room 301 at the Victor Hotel, a building that some in ghost hunting circles believe is haunted.

The second photo includes the four-story Victor Hotel; the third photo includes some of the buildings on Victor Avenue.

Rich and Lisa Let me introduce to you the all-time greatest residents of Victor. This is Lisa and Rich, who live near the center of town.

I took two pictures of them and mushed them together: Lisa, with her beautiful and long blonde hair, and Rich, who was sharing his extensive knowledge about Victor's mining history to another.

January 2006 - Facing south on Teller Highway 81, near the neighboring town of Goldfield. The Sangre De Cristo Mountains can be seen way in the background.

Victor, CO Plenty of old and abandoned buildings remain, begging to be inhabited and restored.

Although it is nothing like the bustling days of the late 1800s and early 1900s, some mining activity still throughout the Cripple Creek and Victor region.

Other pictorials from southern Teller County:
  • Skaguay Reservoir
  • Horsethief Falls
  • Phantom Canyon Road
  • Mueller State Park
  • Cripple Creek
  • Victor ... a town with character.

    Love the old Ford Thunderbird at the gas station. :)
