In my search for abandoned buildings (a personal passion) in Colorado, I came across a listing of ghost towns in Colorado.
week, Scott, Whiskey and I drove out to the one near Fort Collins: the
town of Carr. I won’t deny that I was a bit disappointed to realize that
the listing must have been old and the town of Carr had sprung back to
life. Of course, that’s great for the small local population.
still discovered three abandoned buildings (the first one in the video
is actually located in Rockport) and a natural sandstone fort, which is
said to have been the location of battles between the Crow and Blackfoot
tribes and gun fights between outlaws, cowboys and Native Americans.
we left the area, I got some shaky shots of a group of wild antelope
run away from us. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the thousands of buffalo
that are supposed to be grazing on the surrounding fields.
reason why I love abandoned buildings may be obvious to most: they are
full of history, energy, stories and unplanned beauty. Something to
discover, capture and hold dear.
I’m dedicating this video to my Berlin abandoned building / urbex (urban exploration) friends: Dave of andberlin, Georg of Digital Cosmonaut and Spudnik of Abandoned Berlin and Irish Berliner (since he’s withholding his real name online, I won’t blow his cover here).
