Feb 2nd, 2019 - It's been a GREAT RUN!Posted by Webmaster


Coloradopast.com may be going down soon.

I've always done this site for fun, but $100 a year is just no longer doable for me. In addtion, I'm tired of my host being a bunch of bitches. For anyone considering Lunarpages, which unfortunatly I have recommended for years, if you get an unlimited plan, expect them to send you e-mails telling you how you use up to much space and they will randomly delete your web files. In the mean time, I've archived this to a memory card, and if the site goes down here I will look for a way to run the host on a Rasp PI in the future (which I always have on, anyway). If this site DOES vanish, I hope everyone who used it enjoyed it.

NOW more MOBILE FRIENDLY! Doing some updates to the website. I've been attempting to make the website more mobile friendly. Up until now, Google (thanks Obama) had been removing my website from google searches on mobile devices. This meant only computers could find my site - not good considering people need my site often when exploring. I've widened the area for viewing, and 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 The Coloradopast page has also been removed from Facebook, and has been replaced by a Facebook group - please find us, join, and discuss Colorado ghost towns!

I love the history of the mining towns, and when I learned Images of America didn't have a book on Silverton, I wrote one. It's called Silverton and the Alpine Loop. It's my first, so be gentle. Order online from Amazon.com

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
