Good For the Soul in Alma, Colorado
These are some timelapses I shot a few summers ago near Alma, Colorado. Alma is the highest incorporated town in N. America sitting at 10,578 ft. It is an old mining town nestled in between five of Colorado’s peaks that are above 14 thousand feet.
Peak baggin’, Dog walkin’, Storytellin’, Inspiration seekin’.
Old West meets Hippy Commune.
The perfect day would be emerging from your tent on a brisk July morning and taking the dogs up Mt. Bross, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Democrat and Mt. Cameron. Four peaks above 14,000 ft. that you can knock out in five hours. After this natural high head to Kite Lake to have your lunch on the shore. On your way there explore the many old mines. Cap the evening off with beer at Alma’s only bar.
Access to adventure.
Not the greatest place if you’re looking to socialize.
I think people would be asking themselves “How do people live here?”
