Nestled in the Colorado mountains just west of Denver is historic Georgetown. Established during the 1859 gold rush, it actually became better known for its silver mines (hence its nickname, Silver Queen of Colorado).
While there, we rode the Georgetown Loop Railroad, visited a heavenly bread bakery, sipped lattes at the local bookstore/coffee shop, and treated ourselves at the ice cream parlor.
H and I recently spent a long weekend with family in Colorado. While there, we took a ride on the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad in the mountains outside Denver.
