For those who wish to explore the many ghost towns of beautiful Colorado, there is an excellent book that provides all of the above. Jeep Trails To Colorado Ghost Towns by Robert L. Brown is an excellent guide to many of the old ghost towns and mining areas which once dominated a portion of Colorado. In this guide, one finds helpful descriptions, histories, and photographs. I used Brown's book on a recent exploratory trip into the Colorado Rockies and, on arriving at each and every site I selected to visit, I felt I knew it intimately as a result of studying this guide.
