A midday afternoon at the Crystal Mill

I hiked 8 miles roundtrip, to see this beautiful statement of the history of the West and the United States overall. This power station used to be a workhorse for nearby mining operations. Especially, that of those around Marble, Colorado where marble was extracted to be used on the Lincoln Memorial. This is a testament to American history and experience.
