Last week Scott and I drove up a long and winding rode to Durago, Colorado. On the beginning of our drive we spotted these beautiful, abounded homes in the middle of nowhere, so on our way back we decided to pull over the car and explore a little.
Scott was all in for exploring, however, I was a little apprehensive. I grabbed his hand though and made my way down the hill.
This notice basically said that people watch over these homes and that it was ok to look, but leave everything as it was. Seeing this sign made me feel a little better, as I knew that it was on someone's radar.
The homes themselves were absolutely beautiful, peeling paint and all. I'm not quite sure how long the homes have been there, or how long they have been abandoned, but I loved being surrounded by the ghost of the past.
This house was full of old school lockers and not much else.
I am almost positive one of the reasons these homes were abandoned was because they are starting to fall of the side of a cliff. One day this home will probably be washed away by the rain and will fall onto the highway. I hope someone takes care of it before then!
The homes were breathtaking and it was so neat to venture around with nobody but just us around. If I was more brave I probably would have gone inside and looked around, although, I am pretty sure these homes were very unstable and I would have hated to have some kind of accident in there. It all reminds me of a terrible horror movie in the making.
This pole was the only way that we could get from one side to another. I was so happy to have not fallen in the water (it wasn't that deep though).
Adventures with Scott are truly the best and I'm so happy that we made the stop. This was one of my favorite times with Scott while he was here, and is something I will remember for the rest of my life!
Love was certainly in the air on this romantic, afternoon adventure.
Have you ever gone exploring through abandoned homes?
