Idaho Springs Waterwheel

Bridal Veil Falls plunges over the 120-year-old Charlie Taylor water wheel in Idaho Springs, Colorado

The waterwheel was built in 1893 by miner Charlie Tayler to power a stamp mill that processed ore at the nearby Ute Creek gold mine. The mill was moved and restored in 1946 where it currently sits right beside I-70.
