I’m writing this blog post for my Twitter followers. This, and my other blogs, were set up to automatically post on Twitter. However due to the actions of the new owner of Twitter, I will no longer be posting there. I hope to keep my Twitter followers as blog followers as I restart this blog after my long illness. I’m also considering alternatives to Twitter such as Instagram, but haven’t finalized that. I’ll make an announcement here when I’ve decided what I’m going to do.

Retrospective: Longs Peak
Over the next few Retrospective postings I’ll be sharing my last few roll of Kodak E100GX from 2011. I start here with a view of Longs Peak from Rocky Mountain National Park:

Lake Waneka and my 1913 Kodak Autographic No. 1 Camera…….
This was such a different subject than the other images on roll #2 that I wanted to post it separately. Calm. Peace, Stillness………Taking a few days off for long awaited eye surgery. Update at the end of the week…….
Retrospective: The Doors of Ft Lupton
There are many ‘Forts” in Colorado. But none of them were military outposts. Instead, these were fortified trading posts for Indigenous Peoples and early Trappers.
Fort Lupton has been completely reconstructed on a site adjacent to the original location. It was established in 1836 by Lancaster Lupton, a former soldier and West Point Graduate. Click on the link above for the details of the Founding of the Fort. He had passed through the area with the Dodge-Leavenworth Expedition in 1834.
Trading Gate, interior, the Natives were kept in this smaller area and never allowed into the main Fort.
