If you have followed my blog for a while you may remember that my favorite photographer from the early days of photography is William Henry Jackson who's photographs of Yellowstone were instrumental in getting that made into a National Park.  He went on several Hayden Survey trips in Colorado and took photographs at various places, one of which made him rather famous, Mount of the Holy Cross.  When I was in Colorado at the Summit of Mount Evans I was able to view and photograph the Mount myself.  It even still had snow on it so I was rather excited to finally see it in person.  This is my homage to WHJ's photo.  You can see his original here:,_Colorado_-_NARA_-_517691.jpg  which we were able to obtain an original copy of recently to add to our WHJ photograph collection.  You can read info about how he got the photo here:
