Strike gold at Ouray's ghost towns
Track down the ghost towns that surround Ouray and travel into the past. The Camp Bird Mine was established in 1896 and once supplied Mongolia with gold. Not far away, off Highway 550, Red Mountain Town was once home to some 10,000 inhabitants. Whereas fires destroyed much of the town, you can still see its remains from the Idarado Mine turnoff. Several of the buildings at the Ironton Townsite remain, while a stunning boarding house still stands at Joker Tunnel, a testament to the mining boom of the late 1800s.
There are many more ghost towns accessible by off-road vehicles. At 12,000 feet, you'll find Governor Basin's boarding house. Capitol City, which George T. Lee intended to be the new state capitol, was abandoned in 1920. Carson City is one of Colorado's least accessible encampments, at 12,000 feet on the Continental Divide. Intrepid travelers will be rewarded; many of its historical structures have survived, as have the breathtaking views.
