Crystal Colorado is basically a ghost town 4 miles from Marble Colorado accessible by hiking and jeep tour. After my wife Sheila and I with our friends Barry and Shelly took this jeep tour to arrive in Crystal we were greeted by this old mill. Built in 1893 as a wooden power house to drive an air compressor for a nearby silver mine this building is now on the US registry of historic places. Well worth the harrowing jeep ride but next time I’ll hike in!
