: Turret is a true ghost town that still has many buildings standing. I visited it again in 1996 and it hadn't changed all that much in 20 years. It is in a beautiful setting that can be reached by 2 wheel drive.

It loos the same, however it would appear that alot of the property in that area is up for sale. I find it hard to believe that people would buy it up and do anything with it other than leaving it as a ghost town. But with the way things are these days, maybe a rollercoaster, log ride and some overpriced goodies, charge $ 25.00 a head and there u go. There are alot of ghost towns in this beautiful state that I live in, I have seen a few. I am an avid 4 wheel drive nut, and over many of the passes we do there are ghost towns. Many old mining towns around the Telluride, Ouray area. By the way, that is the most beautiful area in the state. Feel free to drop me a line, I could give u directions to a few other cool towns for your next trip here.
