All is well until Armstrong falls for Cigarette Starr, a beautiful and spirited mule skinner who has also caught Shatterly’s eye. Now, Armstrong must either deny his love or risk his freedom...and quite possibly his life! Loosely adapted by Cripple Creek's favorite playwright...Chris Sorensen from the classic melodramatic UNDER TWO FLAGS by Ouida.

Gold Camp Adventure Tours

Tours of the Cripple Creek & Victor Mining District will be offered this summer from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The new tours will highlight gold rush history and gold mining.
 
The tours will be conducted using transportation and drivers from Parks & Recreation and an experienced tour guide from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The tours will take the place of the public mine tours that were in pre-COVID-19 times offered by the Newmont Cripple Creek & Victor mine. The mine tours have been discontinued for changing mine operations safety standards as well as ongoing COVID-19 health concerns. All of the tour proceeds from the new tours will benefit Parks & Recreation and the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, furthering the missions of both community-minded organizations as a win-win fundraising option for both.
 
The tours will provide the chance to learn about the district’s unique gold rush history – including gold mining old and new, pioneers, and ghost towns. Tours can be packaged with a walking tour of the Sunnyside Cemetery near Victor on select Saturdays this summer as well as with museum admission and gold panning.

Teddy Roosevelt Returns to Victor

Vice President Theodore Roosevelt visited Victor Aug. 9, 1901 to speak at the historic Gold Coin Club and tour the Portland and Gold Coin Mines. Roosevelt, portrayed by Don Moon of Colorado Springs, will portray Roosevelt at the Gold Coin Club Saturday, Aug. 7, almost 120 years after Roosevelt’s appearance. The event is a fundraiser for the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. This will be one of Moon’s final appearances as he plans to retired at the end of 2021.

The event includes a “bully” reception at 2 p.m. with the Roosevelt presentation at 3 p.m.

Roosevelt visited Victor twice; the first in September of 1900.  The Rough Rider was run out of town by an angry mob but returned later in August of 1901 to accept apologies and to speak at Victor’s Gold Coin Club.  

In August of 1901, Roosevelt who was then U.S. vice president, rode the Short Line Railroad over the scenic route to Colorado Springs which is now known as Gold Camp Road. At one point near Rosemont, where travelers could see all the way to Kansas, he exclaimed: “This is the ride that bankrupts the English language.”

Roosevelt came back Aug. 9, 1901. He became the 26th president 35 days after he spoke in Victor in 1901 after William McKinley was assassinated. During his August visit the town threw a grand welcome for the vice president and he toured the underground workings of the Portland Mine. Roosevelt shook hand with nearly 3,000 people and was paraded through the streets. About 800 people crowded into the Gold Coin Club rooms to honor the vice president. Later that day Roosevelt was treated to an underground tour of the Gold Coin Mine and a train ride underneath the mountain to the Economic Mill southwest of Victor, followed by a train ride to Cripple Creek for a reception there.

The event is being sponsored by the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. Advance reservations are highly recommended as seating is limited. Tickets are $20 each and include the reception and presentation. The event starts at 2 p.m. at the Gold Coin Club on Diamond Avenue west of North 4th Street. For more information and to make reservations visit VictorMuseum.com or call 719-689-5509.

Full Moon & Full Moon Feeding Tours

Join Us!
Full Moon Tour is held on one Saturday night a month!
Our Full Moon Feeding Tour is the Friday before and Sunday after our Full Moon Tours.

Our FULL MOON TOURS are always once a month on a Saturday night. These fill up quickly, so make your reservations early!
We start with complimentary seasonal beverages and sweets and then begin the tour. At the end of the tour it is now dusk and we hike up to Chinook's Nature Trail.
There you will hear the story of the birth of CWWC by Darlene, our founder and owner. As the moon rises, we do a group "Howl at the Moon" and we'll hear the wolves howl back. The gift shop will be open after the tour.

Our FULL MOON FEEDING TOURS are always the Friday before and Sunday after our regular Full Moon Tours. However, check our event calendar, as the FMFT may not be held in some winter months.
During the FULL MOON FEEDING TOUR you will meet our resident animals and observe them when they are most active...feeding time! Learn about hunting, howling and hierarchy from dedicated tour guides. 
Free snacks and beverages, plus a traditional group wolf howl will be performed at the end of the tour. 
The tour is approximately 1.5 hours. The gift shop will be open after the tour.
