About Haunted at Timberline
Carson is located above Lake San Cristobal, one of the largest natural lakes in Colorado (see More About Carson). Carson was named for Christopher Carson, who filed a claim on the Bonanza King Mine in 1881. Carson boomed with its Bachelor Mine from 1905 to 1915 and remains very well-preserved, principally because new steel roofs were put onto the primary structures. The largest building is the boarding house, now plastered with graffiti.
