saturday vignette: the “city” of Black Hawk, Colorado

In the spirit of the season I offer Black Hawk, Colorado.

I visited the city for the first time a few weeks ago to attend a day conference. Black Hawk is an odd place when viewed from outside of one of its many casinos. I’m not a gambler, so for me it was a surreal landscape.

Not a ghost town as commonly understood because it is alive, or more accurately undead. Sort of like an urban zombie.
