Sample text

Many of the relationships formed or recon-firmed during that brief August trip turned out to be lasting ones, and the scenes visited made a deep and lasting impression upon the various members of the Colfax party. 52 Moreover, the trio of Bowles, Colfax, and Bross (together with Mary Bowles, the new Mrs. Colfax, and William Bross's daughter Jessie) would return to Colorado the very next summer on their way to Oregon and Washington to celebrate the opening of the Pacific railroad. Written recollections of this trip are few, though Bowles did write his daughter Sallie from Fall River, Colorado, on July 27, 1869, recounting the party's return from Georgetown, where they ascended an unnamed mountain near Grays Peak.

42 Near Hamilton, to everyone's surprise, they were encircled by a party of friendly Utes, who insisted on accompanying them on their homeward journey. Together, a mile beyond Fairplay, they spent the memorable night at ''Camp Ute," an occasion complete with speeches, singing, and the passing of peace pipes, to which a much-relieved Governor Hunt contributed a steer in honor of his guests. The remainder of the return trip to Denver by way of Bailey and Turkey Creek marked a prosaic and uneventful end to an unforgettable journey.
