This is not just another wagon on a ranch. This is a piece of personal history. Sitting in a pasture at what once was the Million Ranch in Southern Colorado where my great grand dad homesteaded, the current property owners have preserved and left much of the barn and equipment in peace.
This particular photo is nostalgic due to the fact that it was snapped the weekend of my grandma’s memorial and a tour of the ranch property was arranged for our family. We got to walk through the original homestead house and see the cozy rooms where she was raised, the barn she played in and the fields that held many of her childhood stories.
I am grateful for that day spent with family and for the current property owners who not only preserved a lot of the land’s history but allowed us to experience and become a part of it for a few precious moments.
