Colorado Research Trip

Updated: Mar 19, 2019

Before the Cowboys & Angels series started Jo Noelle took a trip to Colorado for research.

We went to Grand Junction, Leadville, and Buena Vista. We toured several old homes and cabins in the area that were original to the founding of the town. It was great to see the architecture and styles of the times.

We also had a chance to tour a great pioneer museum in Gunnison. If you ever find yourself nearby, take a tour. They have buildings, cars, clothes, and so much more. It kept us busy for easily two hours and we could have stayed longer, but it started to rain. The last place we went was to Alamosa in the San Luis Valley. They have a great little museum and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable.

I love researching for books. It's so helpful to see things with my own eyes and be in locations the book is based off. The next research trip we went on was to England and Scotland for the Twickenham books--watch for that post soon!
