“Waiting for a Friend”
Photo of the Week #31, selected in December, 2019

This photo was taken in St. Elmo, a renovated ghost town in Central Colorado. Here, blue jays, chipmunks and other species seem to live in harmony, as this photo of a Steller’s jay sharing a snack with a chipmunk clearly demonstrates.

Founded in 1880, the former mining town lies in the heart of the Sawatch Mountain Range off Highway 285, around 20 miles from Buena Vista. It rests at an elevation of 9,961 feet and is definitely worth a visit

St. Elmo’s Rust

St. Elmo’s Rust
Photo of the Week #7, from June 2019…

St. Elmo is a tiny ghost town in Chaffee County in Central Colorado, It sits at an elevation of just over 10,000′ and has a year-round population of 3. We visited this quaint town as often as we could when we lived in the Denver area, with Salida, Nathrop and Buena Vista the closest towns of any consequence nearby. This rusty building is one of my favorite ghost town dwellings. I never tire of seeing it.
