My first seven years were spent in Chicago. But I’ve lived in many places. My parents were both scientists in high demand, así que tuve que viajar por todo el U.S. y fue educado tanto por una variedad de sistemas escolares, así como por inmersión en el conocimiento, discusiones y libros que llenaban nuestra casa. La secundaria fue en Los Alamos, Nuevo Méjico, y la universidad de Swarthmore, PA. The majority of my career was spent running an engineering firm in Boulder, CO. Moving to Montrose to retire, Yo continué haciendo consultoría de ingeniería para un número de años, principalmente para la Base Aérea de Colina en Ogden, OUT.

 

My first exposure to the Museum Of The Mountain West was just in passing. I stopped by to see what it was about and was absolutely amazed at the collection of historical artifacts here. It was like no museum I’d ever seen. Then I took a tour and saw how well everything was presented . . . no en los casos de cristal detrás de cuerdas, but in a guided tour among actual recreations and authentic Old West buildings. Here, los artefactos, edificios y tiendas juegan un papel importante en ayudar a nuestros visitantes del museo a entender no sólo cómo el viejo oeste desarrollado en términos de “cosas,” but also how the details and nuances of daily life affected those who lived their lives in this era. I volunteered to be a Tour Guide to show people all of the wonderful things here as well as tell the stories that bring these things to life.

 

Como ya te guíe a través de esta increíble recopilación y caminar a través de la ciudad en el interior del edificio principal del museo, toda la atmósfera de lo que era 100 years ago comes alive. I take my Museum visitors on a “time machine” trip back into the 1850s and up. We have so much to see here that it’s sometimes a bit overwhelming. The Pharmacy, el consultorio del dentista, la tienda general, Oficina de correos y tantos otros aspectos de la vida en el viejo oeste.

 

Fuera de, our historical buildings all have captivating stories. But I tend to be a bit partial toward the Carriage Works, Oficina del Sheriff, and the beautiful Church where communities gathered. In the Carriage Works is a wonderful collection of the transportation modes of the era, algunos restaurado y algunos originales, but each important to how people and merchandise moved around. The Sheriff’s Office is very authentic, with an original jail from here on the Western Slope. And the Church is simply beautiful. If you listen, you can hear the preacher. And after services, you can feel how the community stayed together to discuss the issues of the day and to connect and reconnect with each other. In fact, la iglesia es tan agradable que es la demanda en estos días como un sitio de la boda y aniversario, donde las parejas vienen de una experiencia que es única y memorable.
