St. Elmo, CO

Population: 3 Yes, you read that correctly. St. Elmo is a ghost town and completely and utterly charming. It doesn't look like much, but we had a blast! And, I pretty much had the St. Elmo's Fire Theme Song playing in my head the entire time. I was rockin' out! (click on photos to enlarge)

This was a photo in one of the deserted windows, it reads:

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten,

 Many license plates nailed to a wall. I'm thinking of sending Tennessee to them, they didn't have one!
Here is the best part. For 50 cents you can get sunflower seeds to feed to the chipmunks, squirrels and ground hogs. The kids LOVED it! They were adorable! The kids and the animals…
 Outside the general store were several hummingbird feeders. Love it!
 The general store…
We stopped at a nice spot along the river for a picnic lunch. Little did we know that it was mosquito infested. We ate quickly…
More tomorrow! Teresa
