20 GHOST TOWNS

OF COLORADO

In the 1800s prospectors came to Colorado from thousands of miles away in search of riches. As it happens however, these sometimes profitable, sometimes not so, adventures didn’t last long. When the gold in a town ran out, people had no way to earn a living. So they packed up and left. These abandoned settlements became known as Ghost Towns.

28 TOP 5 TREES TO PLANT IN

COLORADO FOR POLLINATORS Pollinators are an essential part of our everyday lives. Without them, our gardens and the produce sections of grocery stores would look shockingly sparse.

Autumn on the front range of Colorado is a spectacular time of year! The summer heat fades away into cooler days and nights, and the leaves will soon change into an explosion of color. With Halloween around the corner, I thought a ‘ghost’ story would be fun. Our feature cover story, Ghost Towns of Colorado, highlights the rich mining history of our state and provides a few recommendations if you’d like your own first hand look the past. The alarming decline of bee populations in recent years is a widely known problem. In this issue, we’ve included an informative feature that includes tree recommendations for Colorado landscapes that can help attract and support these important pollinators. Plus, we’ve included two delicious easy-tomake recipes, and recommend a hand-picked collection of fun, local events going on right here in the South Metro. Local businesses like our advertisers count on your support. When you call or visit them, be sure to tell them you “saw them in the Spotlight®!”

HEALTHY HABITS By Family Features

INGREDIENTS:

If getting your kids to embrace healthy eating habits feels like a constant uphill battle, take heart in knowing you’re not alone. However, modeling smart choices in the kitchen and at the grocery store may be just the nudge your kids need. A common misperception is that eating healthfully takes too long. Set a good example for kids to follow by preparing healthy dinners at home. This one-pot turkey skillet is ready in less than 25 minutes to make dinner and cleanup a breeze. To find additional tips to encourage your family’s healthy eating and more than 300 registered dietitian-approved recipes, visit produceforkids.com.

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound ground turkey

1 medium green bell pepper

1 medium sweet onion

3 Roma tomatoes

8 ounces whole-wheat elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions

1 can (15 1/2 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

2 teaspoons cumin

2 tablespoons chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS: 1. In nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add turkey and cook 10 minutes, or until no longer pink. 2. In food processor, pulse bell pepper, onion and tomatoes until chunky. 3. Add vegetable mixture, noodles, beans, cumin, chili powder and salt to skillet and let simmer 15 minutes. #13719 • Source: Produce for Kids

Ghost Towns of Colorado By Bette Erickson

In the 1800s prospectors came to Colorado from thousands of miles away in search of riches. “Gold !” they said. The eager pioneering prospectors worked enthusiastically around the clock and around the state.  It was tough work and it was effortful. To pan for gold, people used flatbottomed pans. Scooping gravel from the bed of a stream, they gingerly swirled the muddy water. While gently tilting the pan, worthless dirt and rocks slid out. But sometimes...because gold is heavier than most rocks, small golden nuggets sunk to the bottom staying in the pan. As it happens however, these sometimes profitable, sometimes not so, adventures didn’t last long. When the gold in a town ran out, people had no way to earn a living. So they packed up and left. These abandoned settlements became known as Ghost Towns.

Spotlight® Magazine | Fall 2017


More than 500 Ghost Towns still haunt Colorado. Following are a few standouts that are notorious and notable:

The City of Cripple Creek, in Teller County, offers annual Ghost Walks and a somewhat more vigorous Cemetery Tour. Both guided tours feature tales of spirits (presumably) still living in Cripple Creek and recount true stories of the famed Old West. With architectural anecdotes and local perspectives, these tours are for the history buff in all of us. Beginning in the lobby of the Palace Hotel (the corner of Bennett Ave. and 2nd St.), reservations/appointments are required. Information: (719) 6899113 or (719) 689-2992.

Are you looking for an authentic Ghost Town experience? Consider renting the entire townsite or ranch at Dunton, on the far southwest corner of Colorado. The award-winning Dunton Hot Springs Resort offers visitors a natural 107-degree effervescent hot springs, a dance hall and romantic cabins abutting an icy, tumbling waterfall framed by rugged hiking trails. This get-away is pricey, but luxurious. More information can be found at www.duntonhotsprings.com.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, and to find out more about Ghost Towns, consider a visit to the one-andonly Ghost Town Museum in Colorado Springs. The museum re-creates an authentic mining town making use of abandoned materials from the Pike’s Peak gold rush. It includes stage coaches, a saloon, jail, sheriff’s office and blacksmith shop. Located at US 24 at 21st St. Visit www.ghosttownmuseum. com to learn more.

Rocky Mountain National Parks’ very own Ghost Town, Lulu City, had an ambitious beginning. Before RMNP was designated, the city was laid out with some 100 city blocks platted in 1879. History indicates Benjamin Franklin Burnett founded the city, naming it after his daughter, Lulu. Located in Grand County in the Kawuneeche Valley on the west side of RMNP, a stage coach from the Front Range made trips to Lulu City three times a week. The pioneering settlers built four lumber mills, an upscale hotel, a post office, a cemetery and more.  But the good times didn’t last and the city was all but a memory just a mere five years later. To get to the Lulu City townsite today, hike 3.7-miles north from the Colorado River Trailhead in RMNP. 

While not technically a Ghost Town because the Nevadaville Masonic Temple (started in 1861) still holds regular meetings there, the site is largely abandoned. Just south of nearby Central City, Nevadaville was known in the 1860s and 1870s as Nevada City and was predominantly Irish at the time. Formerly a part of the Kansas Territory, Nevadaville was one of the most important gold-mining settlements in the area. The Nevadaville Masonic Temple is the only Ghost Town lodge in Colorado.

No story highlighting ghosts would be complete without a mention of the infamous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. The 100+ year old hotel offers both daytime and nighttime tours. The Night Spirit Tour presents a disclaimer: “Due to the fact that spirits are not on payroll, we do not guarantee any interactions.” Still, who could resist participating? Prices vary (ticket prices discounted for military, AAA, senior and hotel guests) and the tour lasts a full 90-minutes. Tourists are encouraged to bring cameras and other personal gear. Learn more at http://www.stanleyhotel.com/ night-spirit-tour.html.

TOP 5 TREES TO PLANT IN COLORADO FOR POLLINATORS By Emma Fitzpatrick

D

id you know 85 percent of plants require a pollinator, and bees pollinate more than a third of our fruits and vegetables? Pollinators are an essential part of our everyday lives. Without them, our gardens and the produce sections of grocery stores would look shockingly sparse. As modern landscapes change, however, bees and other pollinators are fighting to survive. Colorado loses the equivalent of one football field of open space every 2 ½ minutes to development, according to an analysis by Conservation Science Partners. The loss of open space puts pressure on our urban landscapes to fill the nature gap. According to Derek Fox, district manager of The Davey Tree Expert Company in West Denver, people across Colorado are taking action. “From our backyard landscapes to public space initiatives, there are many solutions to help

28

Spotlight® Magazine | Fall 2017

the pollinator problem,” says Fox. “And Colorado seems to be leading the way.” For example, in 2017, Colorado designated a corridor of I-76 to pollinators to create an improved habitat for bees, butterflies, and other species. Stretching from Denver to Nebraska, the “Colorado Pollinator Highway” will revegetate roadsides and restore land with native flowering plants, which, in turn, will help raise awareness of pollinators. “It’s great to see people caring and creating more spaces for pollinators,” said Fox. “While most people think first of planting flowers, trees, too, can help pollinators. Then, you get the many benefits of trees, like energy savings and curb appeal.” Fox says there are many trees you can add to your property that will look great, benefit you and support pollinators. Here are his top 5 recommendations for Colorado landscapes.


TOP 5 TREES TO ATTRACT POLLINATORS: 1

NATIVE GAMBEL OAK

FLOWERING CRABAPPLE

EASTERN REDBUD

LITTLELEAF LINDEN

RUSSIAN HAWTHORN

Planting natives is one of the best ways to assist pollinators. Native oaks, like Colorado’s Gambel oak, support pollinators throughout the year in a number of ways, but especially by providing winter shelter and healthy habitat. In fact, oaks give more than 500 pollinator species a home and enable them to return for years to come. Height depends on variety, but the Gambel oak can grow to a height of 20’ with a spread of 15-20’ at maturity.

Bees love this tree’s vibrant white, pink or purple flowers that are filled with pollen. Then, later in the spring, birds enjoy the tree’s yummy fruit. Height depends on variety, but this ornamental tree is considered small to medium in size. These varieties grow well in Colorado: Prairefire, Lancelot and Coralburst.

This tree’s fuchsia blooms are some of the first to blossom in spring. Bees of all kinds, including honey, bumble and mason bees, enjoy its pollen and nectar. The rest of the year, birds and insects appreciate what this tree has to offer. Growing about 25’ tall with a 25’ spread, this tree, filled with heart-shaped leaves, will sure to be one of your (and the pollinators) favorites.

This tree is a three-in-one wonder. It provides shade, attracts bees and hummingbirds and wows with its yellow, fragrant flowers. No doubt beautiful, this linden also does well in Colorado’s chilly winters and alkaline soil. When mature, this is a big tree that can be 50’ tall with a spread of 40’.

Meet a petite tree that packs a big punch each season. Its sweet white flowers feed bees in May and June, which is followed by a maroon fruit that songbirds love. Come fall, the tree’s glossy leaves turn deep shades of bronze and purple. This hardy tree grows about 20’ tall with a 15’ spread.

Once you find the right tree to bring those buzzing, beautiful pollinators to your yard, it’s time to plant. “While it’s true that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second best is this fall,” said Fox.

HERE ARE FOX’S BEST INSIGHTS ABOUT PLANTING TREES IN COLORADO: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

First, pick a safe spot where your tree will have room to grow. Take the size of the tree at maturity into consideration. Make sure the tree is planted at least 15’ away, even when fully grown, from above-ground wires, underground pipes or wires, and permanent structures like your roof or garage.

DIG, DIG, DIG!

Due to Colorado’s touchy soil, make the planting hole 2-3 times larger than the root ball. This will allow the new tree’s roots to spread out. Then position your tree so that the area where the roots meet the trunk is at or slightly above the ground.

WATER, WATER, WATER!

During the first two weeks, deeply water every day. Then, water once a week for the first year, while your tree still has its leaves. Be sure to take rainfall into account before watering.

MULCH, MULCH, MULCH!

Cover the planting hole with 2-3” of shredded hardwood or leaf mulch, keeping it 2-3” away from the trunk. Do not over mulch the tree or “volcano” mulch.

30

Spotlight® Magazine | Fall 2017

Once you have picked the perfect tree, keep pollinators coming back by providing proper tree maintenance. If you need an extra hand planting or caring for your tree, give Fox–or any of our certified arborists–a call, and they’ll be glad to help. Planting a tree is an investment in your property, your community and your environment that will truly pay off for years to come.

A lifelong tree hugger, Emma Fitzpatrick has spent the last four years marketing and writing about green companies. As a corporate communications project manager at Davey Tree, she helps get the word out about the power of trees and how to keep trees healthy for years to come.

FUEL After-School

FOR BUSY FAMILIES

By Family Features

A

fter a long day at school, kids need a chance to unwind. Often that down time involves physical activity, and a nutritious snack is the perfect way to make sure kids are ready to take on their free time with gusto then recharge to keep going until bedtime. A busy schedule may make the temptation for unhealthy convenience snacks strong, but it’s actually easier than you think to refuel with goodfor-you foods on the go. One simple trick: use kids’ favorite ingredients in unexpected ways. For example, these Chocolate Banana Muffins show that a glass isn’t the only way to enjoy chocolate milk.
