OK, some more.

Quite the scene in Idaho Springs at the turn of the last century as the ore teams prepared to head to the mines in the morning...


Lunchtime is when the community nowadays oftens sees the most activity. If there was something to stand on other than a pick-up truck bumper, could have gotten higher...


The Peck House in Empire (at the southern base of Berthoud Pass) is one of Colorado's oldest continuosly operating hotels...


Much of the interior furniture came with the Peck family in 1862. Not much of an audience this day...


Speaking of Berthoud Pass, almost 100 years ago, 1915...


A gorgeous pass in more ways than one...


Meeker's main street 90 years ago...


Meeker, in NW Colorado is in the middle of fantastic riding, on and off road...


Explorer John C. Fremont discovered the pass containing his name in the 1840's...


That's 14,148 ft. Mt. Democrat in the distance guarding the SW corner of this broad and airy riding pass...
