The Hornbek homestead
near Florissant, Colorado.

This homestead is one of my favorite places in Colorado to photograph. The history adds a level of depth that when you walk around and think about the people who built it and lived here you start to imagine what life was like. It certainly reminds you that many of our problems are mild in comparison.

Adeline Hornbek was the ultimate single mom. Her story of how she not only managed but thrived is a true testament of human tenacity.
