Wow...the downloads were awesome. I had to look more than once as they seemed like oil paintings, the light was so perfectly captured. Well done.

Wow, these photos are stunning, such beautiful vistas and the fall colors add to the images. It does look like it would be a very very long hike if one does not have access to a jeep.


There is a jeep tour company in Marble that can take you there...Crystal River Jeep Tours. As you go up the nasty, untended road, you come across hikers tredging their way up. As it is a dusty mess, they get lost in the fog of dirt as each vehicle passes...many of which are ATV’s who fly by uncaring of the poor souls on foot. Hiking it would require goggles and a week-long post shower.

Very nice. I've been wanting to go there myself, but in my advanced age, I'd never be to hike and probably not drive it either. It's nice to see it without much effort on my part.


No one in their right mind drives this themself, even with the proper vehicle. There is a Jeep Tour Company that provides transportation with drivers that have made the journey for years. There are 3 & 5 hour tours..beginning in Marble: Crystal River Jeep Tours

Great shots --the mill perched on the rocky outcrop in particular-- but even though my Jeep would get me there with no problem, I simply refuse to go places I can't rent a pig. Its important to have standards, after all.


It is good to know some people still hold fast to the same high standards I was taught and still believe in. My disappointment was boundless at not being able to rent a pig...nearly ruined the entire adventure. πŸ˜ͺ

For a bumpy ride to Crystal, CO...This one-lane, rugged, cliff-hugging drive will shake your bones, test your stomach, and make every muscle in your body ache for days, but WOW...the photo ops are incredible.
The tiny Ghost Town of Crystal, CO was originally built as a mining town, but now has 6 remaining family-owned cabins that are only used in the summer. Nearby is the famous Crystal Mill, built by the Sheep Mountain Mining Company in 1893. Located on the Crystal River about 8 miles from Marble, it is one of the most photographed spots in all of Colorado. The wooden mill was a powerhouse which originally had a horizontal waterwheel that generated compressed air for miners who were drilling for silver. When the mines played out, around 1917, the mill was closed.
On the way one can also see the famous Redstone Coke Ovens. No, not for making Coca Cola or Coccaine, these ovens were built in 1899 to burn the impurities out of coal, which was then used in the steel mills to produce the steel which built the railroads.
