What a fine day it is. No wind, no rain, just that nice bright sun light. I bet it is going to be a little on the "hot" side to day.
DesertDale took me on a fantastic ride , one that he covered with bike a few days ago.
It came into service in 1860 to 1867, when the "telegraph" came into service.
Just south of Cherry Creek is the Pony Express Trail and the Overland Stage Route in Egan Canyon, that is where we started or adventure.
It even grew to where the had a school , stores and a post office.
Then 2 big mining company's became the Social and Sieptor Mining Co., that worked some 100 men. Then when the rush was over in the 1930's, everything went.
All has been quite sense.
The population now is a mere 20.
But the Barrel Saloon last until 2010. We did see a few cars parked near by.
But to me it look like a big junk yard.
Will DesertDale is back from his ride so will close , so I can go out and welcome him back. I always make sure he gives me a big hug before he goes one one of his rides.
