Changed hotels to set up for our next days in Colorado. Temperature low 70’s. Our short ride was on bike path around Dillon Reservoir.
April 1, 1961 was drop dead date to move Old Dillon which is now the reservoir. All buildings were moved or burned before filling reservoir. Only roads or foundations remain at bottom. This was 3rd time Dillon was moved.
Several of the buildings moved to neighboring towns. ie Antlers Cafe and Bar moved to Frisco; Hamilton-Dillon Hotel to Breckenridge and Old Dillon Inn, Post Office and General Store moved to Silverthorne.
