One of the first things me and my family were excited to do when we arrived in Colorado was to explore some new ghost towns. We always enjoyed hitting the haunted and creepy spots back in Washington when we lived there and now that we had some new territory to explore, we were excited.

One of the first (and closest) places we heard about and wanted to see first was Dearfield, which sits just off Rte 34 about 25 minutes or so East of Greeley.

My wife had to work so I got in the car with my 5 year old, grabbed some snacks and hit the road toward Dearfield. From where we were in Loveland it was about a 50 minute drive and worth every mile. There were some boarded up places but also a couple of buildings that were open and waiting to be explored...so we did and it was CREEPY.

The little man was actually braver than me...I got the willies as soon as I walked in the door while he didn't want to leave and actually asked if we could camp out there...THAT was a big fat no. If you love ghost towns and haunted things, I highly recommend Dearfield.

Here a few of the pics we took while we were there. Enjoy.
