Frisco

We drove north from Breckenridge to Frisco, mostly to see the Dillon Reservoir and get our water fix after being in the desert for the past four months. But the water was very low, and much of it was still frozen.

We walked to Peppino’s, a pizza place owned and operated by Nate’s uncle and aunt.

Frisco has created a museum by collecting old buildings from town and placing them in a park at the end of main street. It was very well done, and free! All the buildings were open, and we took our time and saw what there was to see.

The schoolhouse (on the left, above) had a display of what Frisco looked like when everything was tiny.

I thought it was interesting how they took a log cabin and fancied up the front.

This building had a display on local bars and bordellos, but I’m not sure it worked quite like this.

The inside of the old jail had a cell (back where Sally is standing) and a display on mining.

Our favorite building was a cabin built locally in the 1930’s as a summer cottage. Much of the stuff inside was original. It looked like a very cozy space to spend a week by a mountain stream.

One of the cabins had a dress-up area in the attic.

The day was beautiful, although actually hot. We wandered the streets and stopped in a few stores.
