The leaves are just now turning so consider a trip to Pagosa Springs. Nearest airport is Durango, CO. More on Pagosa Springs.

You’ll see the miners, madams and mayhem that earned Jerome the nickname, “The Wickedest City in the West.” Drop deep into a “vintage” copper mine, witness the aftermath of an explosion that shook the town to its core, listen to one of the pioneers of jazz tickle the ivories, and watch the bullets fly in a classic wild west showdown. Sponsored by the Jerome Historical Society, the 9th annual Ghost Walk will be performed on Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th.
