From another time

       Chet Hardin, 51, a long-time cowboy in the Rocky Mountain region, passed through Old Colorado City with his pony, Wild Willy, this week looking for work. He said he had just come up from Mesquite, Texas, and planned to continue on to New Mexico. He has specialized in recent times working as a hand at dude ranches. This photo was taken in front of the Garvin Cabin in Bancroft Park evoking an era in which Hardin would probably have been quite comfortable.
