Historic Hood River
This W.F. Laraway image shows the “Balanced Rock” at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I wish we had more information on how they happened to visit this corner of the worlds. We’ve previously seen W.F. Laraway photos of a visit to Yellowstone and others of a visit to Salt Lake City, Utah. We don’t know if these were all from a single grand trip, or if they were able to take several excursions throughout the West.
While this site is now in public ownership, In Laraway’s day this was a private attraction which they would have paid a fee to visit.
