I can't imagine why anyone would think this was a store . . . . .
Silver Plume, Colorado, an ancient silver mining camp, is located in the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic District. The Districtâ€™s main attraction is the â€œGeorgetown Loop Historic Mining & Railroad Parkâ€ and its narrow-gauge passenger train.
The passenger train that connects Silver Plume and Georgetown is justifiably famous. As the train huffs and puffs through the magnificent mountain scenery, it executes a series of 360Â° loops, which is rare in railroading.
I highly recommend the Railroad Park and its passenger train.
Colorado has dozens of ancient mining camps, many of them clinging to life. I have found that these small â€œdots on the mapâ€ almost always offer good photographic opportunities.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
