Happy To See

That the nifty chimney has made it through the years.

Leadville

Beautiful photograph. The clarity and detail are phenomenal. Nice find.

Leadville

I've always wanted to visit Leadville.

At an elevation of 10,152 feet, Leadville is the highest incorporated city in the US. It's a mining boom- (and bust-) town, with a 19th-century opera house and loads of Victorian houses like this one.

Still Standing!

Well, the house is still there. (Photo from 2012.)
