My husband and I currently live in Florida...we've been here for about 2.5 years. We moved here for college. After my husband finishes his schooling at the end of November, we'll be moving to Colorado, a little west of Denver. Are there any other Villagers that live in that area? I'm really looking forward to new places to explore and photograph, like the abandoned mining towns and such. I'm looking forward to camping, hiking, taking drives to the middle of nowhere. We're vising the area in July to look at apartments (anyone know of decent, cheap apartments W of Denver, not too far from Red Rocks Amphitheater?), check out the area, see about jobs, etc... We're both so looking forward to moving...FL is not for us at all.

Anyway, I was just curious as to who else here lives in that area, of any good paranormal spots to check out, things like that. Thanks!

Spent a lot time in CO. Go to Central City. You'll love it. Leadville and a lot of those old mining towns are heavy with 'presences. I've always felt them there in CO.

I wish I could like it, but just can't get into it for some reason.

Pariah...I live in NYC, but have visited Colorado twice. I have visited quite a few areas there and it is a beautiful place. If I ever have the opportunity to move west, I would choose Colorado most definitely. The mountains, streams, views are amazing...not to mention the wildlife. I envy you. One of my many dreams is to own a log cabin in the mountains of Colorado.

If you are interested in the paranormal, then you must visit Cripple Creek. The mules roam around free and they are so adorable. It is loaded with history. Stay at the Imperial Hotel! I had a creepy experience there which I had posted quite awhile ago. Maybe I can dig it up and post it again for you.

Estes Park is a beautiful area right near Rocky Mountain National Park. I had spent my birthday there years ago and it was like DisneyLand to me. There were Marmots, and chipmunks (I even held them in my hand), I stroked deer, and whenever I put my hand out, these birds called Nutcrackers would land on me. I felt like Snow White. That day was August 31, the exact year I don't remember, but up in the mountains it was snowing. as we traveled further we were graced with a double rainbow. It was truly magical, and one of the most memorable times in my life. That was the best birthday gift ever. The gift of nature at its finest!

Hi Pariah,

These are the friends I made in Colorado. The ones I mentioned in my previous post. It was great digging up old and treasured memories. :clap:

These marmots are adorable!

What a kick to hold a chipmunk in your hand! YIKES...We were brave then!

I was so honored to have a bird land on me. An actual bird...and not his poo!

I know this doesn't look like a double rainbow, but it was at the time. Just couldn't find the actual picture of the magnificance of it.

hawkerdriver, I wrote the names of those places down. I'm so excited to check them out!

Cyn, those photos are amazing! I'm a huge animal lover, so I'll definitely have to check that park out. That's one of the main things I'm so excited about...animals, and nature. And you're really pretty!

PariahPeace, here's a link to the post Cyn mentioned:

http://www.ghostvill...?showtopic=2680

(Cyn, I promise I'll reply as soon as possible {raising right hand} :wow: )

I lived in a little town west of Colorado Springs and worked in Cripple Creek for several years while attending Regis University. You can read about some of my experiences at http://www.angelfire.com/weird2/divide or just go to page 61 of The World's Most Haunted Places.

The whole state is "Spook Central," but I'd recommend going out to http://www.theshadow...es/colorado.htm and browsing the site listings for Colorado. Central City, Blackhawk and Leadville are nearby, but you'll be surprised at some of the really spooky places right there in Denver! Cheeseman Park is a good place to start :Wall:

earth_spirit, LOL, you read my mind...last night, not only did I read that thread, but I checked out your site, AND looked through the Shadowlands site...I've actually been using that site as a guide for a few years now. Thanks! =)

Hi Pariah!

So happy that you enjoyed the pics. I have lots more and will try to post them when I get the opportunity. Thank you also for the lovely compliment. It made my day! :hug:

I know you will love Colorado, especially since you are an animal and nature lover.

Earth Spirit to the Rescue! I was searching for that thread last night, but for some reason I couldn't land upon it. Today I saw that he had located it for you. I enjoyed Earth Spirit's website also, it's great. Like he said, the Imperial is not the only haunted place in Cripple Creek, it was just the only one that I encountered personally. The whole dang place is haunted! You can feel it in your bones. :)

Thank you Earth Spirit. For some reason I was having a difficult time navigating last night and couldn't locate that thread for Pariah. Glad you found it!

Hope you are well! Take care and talk to you soon! :)

I'm glad to know that I could be of assistance :) I'm sure you'll have a lot to do when you get to Colorado, PariahPeace, but I hope you'll eventually make your way down to Cripple Creek for a little ghost hunting. The Mount Pisgah cemetery overlooking the town is another stop you'll want to make. It's pretty spooky even during the day.

But please be safe! All those cute little chipmunks (they're actually ground squirrels) in Cyn's pictures have been known to carry a potentially fatal organism in their droppings known as hanta virus. I don't mean to sound like an alarmist, but I had an 18 year old neighbor that died about being exposed to it. He was taking some speakers out of storage in the family's barn, and the doctors think he aspirated the virus in the dust that was stirred up.

I apologize for setting such a somber tone here, but it's something you'll hear more about when you get to Colorado . . . and speaking of Colorado, if you go to Cripple Creek, you'll probably be going through Colorado Springs. As you head out of town on Hwy 67 you'll pass a block or two away from what's known as Old Colorado City. The haunted Arby's that's mentioned on theshadowlands.net is located there on West Colorado Avenue, the street that runs parallel to Hwy 67. I've been in the place a few times. It's odd to see a popular fast food restaurant like Arby's sitting idle and boarded up, the parking lot filled with weeds growing through the cracks in the asphalt. Evidently, the stories about the place have kept anyone from buying it.

[size=4]Hello this is dont slam the door, a new member. Thanks for the welcome, Moonchild and Jeff.
I have family in Colorado. They live mostly in Pueblo, and near Colorado Springs, Denver. It is most lovely there, and I enjoy visiting when I can. Not sure of the population of Pueblo, but it's a nice little place, very friendly and-fashioned. I am very partial to the area. I think Denver would be a nice place to live too, but I'd want to live away from the city a bit. Co. Springs is nice. Hope you have a safe move, and find the perfect place for yourselves. I believe you're doing the right things to move from California!
Look behind you...
