Buckskin Joe's (yes, that is really the name of the town)

After the balloon launch we drove to Canon City and just outside of the city there is a western town called Buckskin Joe's. It is a town created by historic western buildings brought to this town to recreate the original town Buckskin Joe's. You can go into the buildings and see time period things typical of the west. They have live gunfights and horse drawn wagon rides, and a mine you go in. Many many movies have been filmed there with many famous stars including John Wane. We had so much fun there! It was a little cheesy but mostly fun and there were some really cool things to see. The kids loved it especially Henry!
