Hornbek Homestead Wagon
Located somewhere in the 6,000 acres that make up the Florissant Fossil Beds and Hornbek Homestead National Monument in Florissant, Colorado - elevation 8,400 feet. This land includes rich deposits of fossil plants and insects that give an unusually detailed look at life in ancient North America. Standing petrified Sequoia stumps provide a striking contrast between the old environment and the present day mountain ecosystem.
The Hornbek Homestead, built in 1878, recalls the life of early pioneers. Many were drawn to the region by gold, but Adeline Hornbek and her children-like many others came to farm and ranch. The historic site includes the original cabin and a reconstructed barn, carriage shed, and root cellar. This hyper-stereo pair is of one of the two wagons found at the site.
This pair of images was taken In June, 1997 with a single Minolta Freedom-Tele 35mm camera using Kodak Gold ASA 200 print film. This view is looking at the wagon and valley, facing south. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
