high altitude humor...

we have alot of empty old buildings in victor, and some of our local yocal's put together this humorous window display.  i think it's off the chart cool!  i love all forms of quirky art and this puts a smile on my face everytime i walk by it.  the reflection shows some of the great buildings remaining in this old mining town.  and by the way, a couple of them are for sale.  so if you're adventurous and have a mind for restoring old buildings...make the trip up the mountain to check them out.  i would say "it doesn't hurt to look"...but our track record might indicate something different.  we look...we buy!

bringing the outside inside...

what could make a better wall than old garage doors removed from the lower backside of building?  it was a bit of a challenge getting them up a century year old rickety wooden fire escape, but just as i was figuring out that i couldn't hold up my end of the deal, an unsuspecting fella' came walking down the alley and lent a helping hand. 

they didn't quite go all the way to the wall, so we had to splice in with a rusty piece of metal, also salvaged from the back.  so we now have doors to nowhere.  but they will be perfect to junk up with rusty spikes and relics from the gold camp!
