Wednesday Near Wyoming - April 25, 2018

Do you enjoy stepping back into history? Does clean mountain air appeal to you?  Can you deal with high altitude? If you answered "yes" to those questions, you'd probably enjoy a visit to the last of this month's outside-of-Wyoming destinations.

South Park City (no connection to the TV show) is a fascinating -- at least to me -- restored gold mining town in Fairplay, Colorado. All of the more than thirty buildings are filled with period artifacts and are original buildings from Fairplay and other mining towns in the area.

If you visit, you'll have the opportunity to see a blacksmith's shop, the courthouse, a dentist's office, a saloon, a miner's home and much, much more.

One caveat: Since Fairplay is located at almost 10,000 feet above sea level, you'll want to walk slowly and drink lots of water as you tour this remarkable town.
