Album caption and index card: View of the Colorado or Front Range from near Gold Hill, as seen from Bald Mountain, about 3 miles west from the Ward mining district, embracing a view from Long's Peak on the north, to near Arapahoe on the south. In the foreground is one of the little snow-fed lakes, so numerous throughout the mountains, and forming a pleasant variety to the monotony of numberless snow-white peaks. Although this view was made late in June, it will be seen that the hillsides are heavily draped in a mantle of snow, lying very deep through all the forest. The difficulty of reaching even this altitude was very great, requiring most laborious plunging through the thick timber and deep drifts. At the extreme...

Album caption and index card: Photomicrograph of quartz-biotite schist from Idaho Springs formation at Nederland. Original bedding (nearly vertical in photograph) is intersected by shear planes sloping down to right at about 45°, and these shears are cut by later shears sloping to the left at 60°. b, Biotite; g, garnet; m, magnetite; q, quartz; fqb, crushed feldspar, quartz, and biotite. Plain light. Boulder County, Colorado. Notes: Published as figure VII-C in U.S.Geological Survey. Professional Paper 223. 1950.

Album caption and index card: Front range of the Rocky Mountains from near Gray's and Torrey's Peaks. This view is very nearly due north, looking down on the spur of Mount McClellan, and directly opposite from Gray's Peak. Beyond is James Peak, and the range about it. Along the horizon is Long's Peak, and the range running west from it, forming the boundary between North and Middle Parks. Clear Creek, Grand and Boulder Counties, Colorado. 1873. (Panorama with nos. 1310-1311; jwh01310-jwh01311; 1313 - 1315; jwh01313, jwh01314, jwh01315).

Long's Peak, a view from Estes Park on the northwest. Distance of about 12 miles from the summit. The park is about 4 by 6 miles in diameter, lying inside the foot-hill range and close under the main range. Long's Peak, as seen from the plains, in the most prominent in the front range, rising sharply high above the surrounding peaks. Its elevation is 14, 271 feet, and about 6,300 feet above the park. Boulder and Larimer Counties, Colorado. 1873.

Album caption and index card: Photomicrograph of gold-tungsten ore from west end of 280-foot level of Keklonga mine, Magnolia district. Sylvanite (s) in crustified quartz (q₁ and q₂) associated with early coarse-grained ferberite. Fine-grained ferberite with a little quartz lies on the earlier quartz and is in turn incrusted and veined by late quartz (q3) containing some ferberite of three generations (f1, f2, and f3). py, Pyrite.

Long's Peak. View from the summit of the divide, between the waters of the Saint Vrain and Boulder, southeast about 10 miles from the peak.

Among them rises the Saint Vrain, flowing down through the deep gorge in the center of the view. The foreground is characteristic of all the country lying insidethe foothills, a great plateau of granites, seamed and furrowed into deep ravines and canyons, and covered to a great extent with dense groves of pines. Boulder County, Colorado. 1873. Photo same as no. 1228.
