Last week we spent a few days with family in Colorado Springs. Our son took us up to the old ghost town of St. Elmo. This town was founded in 1880 and sits at an elevation of 9,961 feet in he heart of the beautiful Sawatch Range of mountains, about 20 miles southwest of Buena Vista.
At one time nearly 2,000 people settled in this town when mining for gold and silver started. What an interesting place to walk around. Well worth the drive!
