Hey everyone! Doing some updates to the website. I'm scaling the website to a wider resolution (old was 1024x768, new is 1280x720) - with this change, I'm redoing graphics, adding content, and will impliment a new map system with the Google maps API to make finding locations easier. The Coloradopast page has also been removed from Facebook, and has been replaced by a Facebook group - please find us, join, and discuss Colorado ghost towns!

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar,
I love not man the less, but nature more.
-Lord Byron
