We are spending the night in the tiny town of Victor, Colorado. They have a lot of Christmas celebrations going on today and tomorrow. We will be attending the Christmas Parade in Cripple Creek, about 7 miles from Victor.
Victor is a National Historic District, the Victor Hotel is the tallest, most striking building in Victor. After remaining vacant for many years, the restored hotel building reopened for business in 1992. The bank vault and original birdcage elevator, still operational, can be seen by stepping into the hotel lobby.
The Victorian rooms and the old elevator is awesome. I tried to capture the beauty of the hotel and the elevator. The lighting was not great for pictures, I did the best I could. :-) I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
