Jenny Harding, For TSM

My wife, Jenny, is taking a photography class. One of their assignments took them to the North Park Pioneer Museum in Walden, CO.

It's not very hard to find, but if you need the address, it is 87 Logan Street. The museum is just a little over two hours from downtown Fort Collins.
