This blog is about magic moments, and every now and then I get to write about some magic haunted moments! (lucky you😀) Inspired by all things ghostly, one thing I absolutely love to do in each new city is a ghost walk. (Hint: Check out this ghost walk company). Naturally, I have great stories and recommendations for you.
Molly Brown. She came from humble beginnings, but the ‘Unsinkable’ Molly Brown has gone down in history as the heroine who helped load the lifeboats on the Titanic.
Historic Denver’s Molly Brown House Museum enhances Denver’s unique identity by telling the story of Margaret “Molly” Brown’s activism, philanthropy and passion through educational programs, exhibits, and stewardship.
I spent some time in Leadville, Colorado, famous for its mining history. (Did you know there are 260 miles of underground caves there?) It’s also famous for its iconic couple from the town’s silver mining boom, Horace + Baby Doe Tabor. I visited a few iconic spots, including the “Silver Dollar Saloon” – America’s Oldest Wild West Saloon – and the National Mining Hall of Fame + Museum.
Twenty years after the Gold Rush, the Colorado Silver Boom occurred in 1879 causing hordes of silver seekers to rush the Rockies. Horace Tabor, known as “The Bonanza King of Leadville,” joined the crowds and landed in the Centennial state becoming one of the richest silver barons in history.
Tree identification in Colorado can be difficult. I use this website to identify what i’m seeing.
Aren’t they pretty!?
I’m in Aspen, Colorado. The shops in Aspen are gorgeous, I love walking around taking photos of all the high-end stuff. They are so great to check out when no one else is around. When I travel, I like to get up as early as possible and catch the best light around town. It’s amazing to see the history of some of these buildings. They are still standing from the 1800s. They are so attractive!
Wok charred spicy edamame, shishito peppers, garlic + sesame with a charcuterie + artisan cheeseboard at “The Living Room” in Hotel Jerome, Aspen. The room is warm + toasty (excuse the pun), it lends itself well to warming you up after chilly adventure in the mountains! As it happened, we had just returned from visiting The Continental Divide, and I couldn’t get over the mystical feeling I had from the sights of the snowy mountains. What a thrill sipping red wine and nibbling from this cheeseboard in a magnificent lounge at 8,000 ft elevation!
