Precious

The smaller of the two little guys, closest to the building. What a dollbaby. Love his confident stride.

Mysterious messages

Try as I may, I cannot figure out what messages were
printed and overprinted on the lower two lines on that wall.
Does anybody have a clue?

Not us!

Those kids absolutely did not explore that building.

Possibly the Best Beer in Colorado

I say that because among the great disappointments of my life was Coors Beer. Due to its limited accessibility east of the Mississippi, a mystique developed around the brew "born out of pure Rocky Mountain water." As a college student in Maine, I finally got a can of Coors in the late '70s, only to discover that it had no flavor whatsoever. I can't understand why Coors survived and Beer Depot Beer did not.

More Filling

Leadville was not known for lite.
