William Henry Holmes, was a unique 19th century renaissance man who was a great artist who was along for Hayden's expeditions in the West, and illustrated some of the earliest sketches of the regions geology and land quality. With a strong science background he didn't over dramatize what they encountered, but instead gave some of the most exacting and readily identifiable images for parts of the territorial West. This image shows a portion of the front range in present day Douglas County just west of the town of Larkspur. It's a geologically diverse area along the foothills that was then known as Pleasant Park.
