The landscapes on this site show stunning Willow Creek Canyon, just north of Creede, Colorado. Here, more than 120 years ago, walked Poker Alice Tubbs as she “made her stake” at the card tables of Creede’s casinos. She climbed the mile above Creede to win her hands in the aptly-named town of Bachelor, too.
I hope you get a chance to see this beautiful canyon, drive up Bachelor Loop, and visit the remains of once thriving silver mines.
- If and when you visit the town of Creede, you’ll be welcome on streets of a lively and still entertaining place.
- Eat some great food there, meet friendly locals, and see a show at the Creede Reperatory Theater.
- Stop by the museum and say hi to folks from the Creede Historical Society!
