Idaho Springs, Colorado: Decayed Miner StatueA battered cement statue of what appears to be a old-time prospector. Larger than life, but not a giant. He has no hands.
- 465 Chicago Creek Rd, Idaho Springs, CO
- I-70 exit 240, then drive south a half-mile on Hwy 103/Chicago Creek Rd. The statue is on the right, next to the highway, but it can be somewhat hidden behind parked cars and random junk.
