Good decision.As a tangent, I once had a man, who was about to die, ask me to bring "a priest"....well, this was across the street from a Catholic church and Mass was going on. Yep, I crashed Mass, with much haste. The Priest came. The man was not alive when we returned but the Priest did priest stuff.
That's cool. I rode the little train out of Cripple Creek and saw the mine but didn't know you could get that close to it.Just off CO 67, East of Cripple Creek... at the scenic overlook to the Newmont Cripple Creek & Victor Mine.
The viewing platform is an old dump truck bed.
