For the back round on what happened here and you may find it very interesting you can read it about it right here. And there is more to the story as on the same day at the Indian agency in what is now Meeker,Colorado agent Meeker was killed as well as his wife and others.
These are not the best pictures by any means but it's an attempt to put a face on this event and where it happened. The 5th picture is important.
Remember on Blogger you can click on pictures most of the time twice and they become much larger for great viewing. Move the cursor just a bit before the second click.
It's unclear what the plans are here but there is drip irrigation and trees planted all around the perimeter and as you can see fairly large pieces of stone to be used later for something. I have a feeling it will be something for the soldiers as that's the way it usually works.
Driving on the back roads out here in NW Colorado it is very obvious it is the white guys these days who have become hostile!
