Nevadaville Revisted.

Last weekend we took a drive on the Peak to Peak byway from Central City to Estes Park, Colorado. We made a stop in one of the closer ghost towns to Denver called Nevadaville. It's hard to believe that during the peak of mining prosperity in the area more than a thousand people lived here. Here are several then and now comparison photos.

I've posted about Nevadaville previously and the art of Andre Yi.
