Crestone, Colorado is a small, remote town with a unique history. It is located near the majestic western slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Range, not far from the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The mining town was founded in 1880 and it's population swelled to 2000 people by 1900. However, alter the mines were closed, the population steadily declined to an estimated 140 people today. If you like a mix of time travel with your road trips, you can still see some reminders of Crestone's golden past like this once bustling hardware store.
