John K. Aldrich rediscovered, researched and wrote about 425 Colorado ghost towns and historic mining camps in his highly acclaimed Ghosts of... series. This new edition of My Favorite Ghosts presents 20 of the sites John loved most. Chosen with an eye towards what remains for today's explorers and those with the best stories — mostly fact, some lore, and all vibrant reflections of Colorado's colorful mining history. GPS co-ordinates and elevations, new to this edition, help with on-the-ground explorations in the High Country.
The book groups the 20 sites in three central and western Colorado regions, presenting seven northern sites, eight central sites, and five southern sites. A Best Guide to Colorado Ghost Towns.
