This is a black and white photograph of Cortez in McElmo Canyon, Montezuma County, Colorado. In the foreground is a flat plain covered in bushes and some ancient ruins. The ruins can barely be seen at the center of the photo as most of the bricks litter the ground. The brush covered plains stretch into the background. The mountain range in the distance is called Sleeping Ute Mountain. This photograph can be found on page 206 of John Fielder's Book, Colorado 1870-2000 Second Edition.
The second black & white photograph, taken by William Henry Jackson, is found on page 206 of John Fielder's book, Colorado 1870-2000 Second Edition.
