Valley map

What we know (was Chronology)

Crystal River Valley measures time through memory. These maps reflect the places where people carved their memory onto the landscape.

Following the Crow tracks from the southwest

Crow's Mountain

steep mountain icon 
Crow's Mountain can be seen from any place in the Valley, except on foggy mornings.

Martin W. Crow,
Jan. 24, 1817 - Jul. 25, 1844

Crystal River

Crystal River 
Saskatee followed the river from north to south through Crystal River Valley, gathering willow bark and chokecherries, which had no effect.
"

Jensons
 
The Jenson barn looked out over Scavenger Cliff, but was nonetheless a wonderful place to dance.

Scavenger Cliff

13,988 feet. Ephraim Horner found God here.
Red Birch Pitkin lost God here.

TheDark Sisters

Mariah Horner prayed here—-and never said if she received an answer. Sandor's bones were buried here—and they are no longer.

Travelling by rail from the southwest to Marble Springs

Railroad 

CR&R line comes up from Denver, stops in Eagle, Carbondale, Redstone, and Glenwood.  
Sugar Boy Mine

Catterings

Minute house icon 3
The Catterings barely expanded Old Joe’s mining shack into a cabin large enough for them—right by the Sugar Boy Mine.

Sing (Luc San and Jones)

Minute home icon
Miss Sing could look out over Grizzly Peak and Ken Jones could oversee the Railroad from their home.

Willow Creek
 Clancy Gaylor was found here with twenty-nine axe wounds. No one asked why he was so far from his home.

Heollstar

Minute house icon  
The Heollstars lived where they could see the train come in, and where Alvina could gather her herbs on the banks of Willow Creek.

Wringle

tent icon
The Wringles pitched their tent here.

Stokes

Minute house icon  
The Stokes had lived near Sad Iron Peak, but moved here on the Crystal River so Martha could wash her memories away and Chirpy could play.

Harmons (Anne and Laura)

Minute house icon
The Harmons never really noticed which of the two houses by the Black Queen Mine belonged to which Harmon.

Harmons (Dell)

Minute home icon  
The Harmons scattered across these houses.

Marble Springs

town icon  
Marble Springs is not quite in the center of the map.

Black Queen Mine
Black Queen Mine

Travelling by rail north east to the quarry

Railroad

CR&R Railroad dead ends at the quarry, as there is nothing more of interest further on.  

Pitkins
Minute house icon 

The Pitkins were not welcome to live in Marble Springs proper, so they are outside the town walls, near the Devil’s Punch Bowl.

Devil's Punch Bowl

The Devil's Punch Bowl is formed by three mountains; Hell's Rim, 11,390 feet; Mount Greer, 13,436 feet; and Silver Hill, 12,890 feet. These mountains have large deposits of marble. Griffith found these deposits and sold the claim to T.M. Davidson in 1870.

Quarry

Marble Quarry
quarry icon  
The quarry lies close enough to the town for workers and at the end of the line for the railroad.

Croft

Minute home icon
The Crofts lived within sight of the Goliath Manor, but they were never invited.

Goliath Manor

castle icon
 Goliath Manor perches half way up a hill with a good view of the quarry<h1>Valley</h1>
