Crystal City Pump House...

A clichéd image of this well kept piece of american history....

 

Reputed to be one of the most photographed mining town/areas in Colorado, is, I must say a royal pain in the ass to get to, you either have to hike the 4 miles in with camera gear, I hiked 3 in & 3 out as my vehicle would only make it the first mile, or four wheel it, on the other hand, one can rent an ATV or grab a JEEP tour in the nearby town of marble, home to the famous white marble (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_marble) that is the Lincoln Monument...
