The Lost City of Gilman
Adventure and exploration got the best of us one day. In search for the latest abandoned place to sneak into in Colorado we stumbled upon this hidden gem. Gilman is a town that is stuck in time since it was abruptly abandoned in the mid 80's. The reason why everyone left was due to the mining occurring right below the town. A lot of people suffered from lead and zinc poisoning so the EPA had to shut it down. Walking through this forgotten town in the middle of fall really set the mood for us as we made our way through broken houses and overgrown streets. I think its the silence that keeps me coming back but this town will forever have a spot in my heart. The last two photos were taken on a recent trip this time we ended up going into the mine.
