There is a place called Brown’s Park that encompasses northwestern Colorado, southern Wyoming, and northeastern Utah. The history of it is replete with Native Americans, early 20th century outlaws (Butch Cassidy), cattle rustlers, cattle barons, homesteaders, and miners.

I needed to get across town to my brother’s house because we were going to have Easter dinner immediately following the session so that the out of town travelers could get home.
