Description

May 5 we drove from Laramie

Wyoming to Estes Park, Colo.

via Fort Collins, Cal. #28

A wonderfully scenic trip all

the way from Laramie.

First long grade up and I saw

treeless hills with the wind

blowing a gale, soon coming

in view of great snow capped

peaks in Colorado; topmost of them

all being Longs Peak. Mts and

little valleys and ranches, giving

place to larger ranches and

wide views, after we'd crossed the

mts and gotten to the plains

country. After so much treeless

stretches Colo. ranch lands certainly

looked good to us, and that part of

the Centennial State you first

see after the mts is among the

states richest agricfultural section.

Ft Collins, Loveland, Longmont

etc are fine towns with wide

streets, plenty of shade trees and

splendid homes.

We cooked dinner this day

in the street in Fort Collins,

which, by-the-way is a fine

little western city
