Pinecliffe, Colorado

About 40 miles from Denver, in Coal Creek Canyon, is the little town of Pinecliffe.

I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, stopped there.   Our first stop was the Pinecliffe Post Office.

We loved this post office and the post mistress was so nice

We went inside for mom to purchase a sheet of stamps.   This post office is great for stamp collectors. Mom looked through the book of available stamps. She had not even seen some of them.  We left the post office with much more than on e sheet of stamps.  And, I think we will be back. Mom saves some of the sheets, but she likes to use different stamps on the mail we send.

This Union Pacific train came through Pinecliffe.

We love trains.  Doesn't everyone?

Mom thinks we had a relative that worked for the railroad and lived in Pinecliffe.  We like trains.

Pinecliffe is a pretty little town in the mountains and South Boulder Creek flows through town.   This is a view from the road looking upstream, back to town.

We liked peaceful Pinecliffe, and we like knowing that a relative lived and worked here many years ago.  You would enjoy driving in Coal Creek Canyon and visiting Pinecliffe.
