Good Lookin’

It’s a looker!

There’s no doubt that the Ute Ulay, with it’s dilapidated charms is a head-turner. The romance of the Wild West lives on in the shabby chic of the buildings, and the dusty expanses of waste rock, set against the sublime and vertiginous Rocky Mountains.

The Ute Ulay site is is private property, and the ‘no trespassing’ signs are strictly enforced. So, it was a treat for everyone last week, when I teamed up with two Lake City pro photographers (Carol Robinson and Craig Palmer) for a look around.

Here’s your treat now – a selection of their lovely pictures!
