Ute Creek Trail

Last Friday, John and I drove to Salida, then drove up northeast on County Road 175 or Ute Creek Trail. Ute Creek Trail was the road the settlers in the 1860's used to get to Canon City. It was also the cattle range of Thomas Cameron, one of the early settlers and a friend of Ernest Christison. Thomas, Ernest and Thomas' son, J.B. jointly registered a brand in 1880.

Imagine herding cattle through this terrain--without the nice gravel road!

Tonight on ebay I will be listing several 1930's PHOTO ALBUMS with Canon City, Colorado history that were compiled by Lila May Gresham.
I googled her name and the city, and found you.
Thought you might be interested. My ebay name is 'pacwest' and I am just an individual from Coos Bay, Oregon, where I found these albums at a 2nd hand store.
Please disregard if you are not interested. You can contact me thru ebay if you would like.
