Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park then & now / text by James H. Pickering; photographs by Mic Clinger and Derek Fortini.
Historic photographs paired with contemporary photographs taken from the exact same locations illuminate the evolution that has occurred in the Estes Park area, as well as in Rocky Mountain National Park, over more than a century. From the Stanley Hotel to Lake Estes, see whether the landmarks and landscape of Estes Park have been completely transformed or if they remain almost unchanged. Ninety-eight pairs of pictures are included. Held in Heckendorn Preservation Library.
