Como Cemetery

Copyright Jeff Ball 2007

This was taken from Como Cemetery, just outside of Como, Colorado. Como is an old mining town that was very popular because¬† the railroad passed through on it’s way to Breckenridge. At one time the town even had two newspapers, multiple saloons and hotels. Much of the town¬† burned and was never re-built.

Now, there are less than a hundred people living there. It’s situated at the opposite end of Boreas Pass from Breckenridge in South Park.

The Cemetery itself is filled with mysterious tombs of babies, nameless women and miners. It’s nestled into a beautiful Aspen Grove overlooking this great vista.
