HEART OF THE ROCKIES

In Colorado

in all of its grandeur

A Scenic Guide Book of the Rocky Mountains - (1900)

The color illustrations shown in the following pages are all made expressly for this book from photographs taken by special artists of the most striking objects of interest which abound to a most remarkable extent along both lines of the D.&R.G.R.R., between Denver and Salt Lake City. Great care was taken to select only such views as every traveler actually sees from the car windows, so that the book truly forms a panorama of scenic wonders which is unrolled every day before the eyes of those who make the trip across the continent. Everyone desires to secure souvenirs of the journey, and, knowing this, we have endeavored to make this volume such a record of facts, and such a collection of beautiful, accurate and attractive views, that it will be recognized by all as the most appropriate and interesting souvenir of the Transcontinental Journey.
