Broken China

These pieces of glass and china are gathered from the ruins of the Crags Hotel in the Eldorado State Park. A scattered collection resides on the top of the remains of the fireplace, just below there's a pile of rusted bent nails. Posted by Picasa

Very neat. I have many photos of destruction from here in the city.

Hey there Wayne! Why am I not surprised that this photo caught your eye?

I think the weirdest thing about this one, was realizing that this whole resort complex was built at the turn of the century with only a narrow dirt and rock path climbing 1200ft above the trailhead at 5700ft.

Recreation inspired an faint distant echo of the heroic efforts that put monastaries back in the Tibetan mountains; American fickleness maintained it for only four years.

We thought of you while watching Bubba Ho-Tep. ;)
