Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Fort Garland

On our drive home from the Great Sand Dunes, Pat and I stopped in Fort Garland to get a few pictures of the abandoned Ute Cafe, which we had spied earlier in the day. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot I noticed this abandoned building across the street and had to get a shot of it too. It looks like it must have once been a cafe, and at another point it was a thrift store, judging by the peeling layers of the facade.

According to this website, Fort Garland was established in 1858 as a military post. This building looks like it dates to the late 1800's or early 1900's. It looks so empty and sad! I hope someone fixes it up.
