Ghosts Live Here - Ashcroft, Colorado

Ashcroft Ghost Town, Ashcroft, Colorado

This will be my last post this week, as it is Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in the US. I wanted to post something that said something about the first Thanksgiving, when the pilgrims gave thanks with a meal with the local Native Americans in 1621. This is as close as I could get. Instead of 1621, this building was built in 1880. Instead of being in Massachusetts, this building is located in Colorado.  Okay, it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving, but it is rustic.

This abandoned building is actually one of nine buildings that make up the Ashcroft Ghost Town just outside of Aspen. We had just left Maroon Bells and were headed back to Denver. Rick Louie wanted us to shoot a few photos here of the buildings against the mountains and golden aspens. I am so glad that he did, as you could see how beautiful this location is.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, and I will see you here on the blog next week.
