Fodor's Review

This entire town is a National Historic Landmark District, and it's the most significant example of a turn-of-the-20th-century coal–coke camp in Colorado. As you drive through the area, note the telltale streaks of black in the sandstone and granite bluffs fronting the Purgatoire River and its tributaries, the unsightly slag heaps, and the spooky abandoned mining camps dotting the hillsides.
