The gift of the “FAN Club” continues- Jeff Reuter has more images for us with dear family on a Colorado trip.

Little Bobby Lee was born in 1932, so would have been eight if this trip was in 1940.

Here is another clue to place. Victor, Colorado is about 6 miles from Cripple Creek, and all these historic towns are part of a mining area that has been frequented by tourists for many, many years. Our son was about the same age as his grandfather, “Little Bobby,” when we visited Victor and Cripple Creek. Going down into the mine was such fun for us- wonder if the Lees and Reuters made that trip deep into the earth back in the 1940s?
