Driving through the remote town of Hartsel, we came across this scene. Not exactly sure what this is about, but thought it was funny. Hartsel is known as "The Heart of Colorado" for its proximity to the geographical center of the state. Founded in 1880, Hartsel sits at an elevation of 8864 ft and has a population of 677. Wish I had taken some photos of the flat, wide-open plains (with distant mountain views) in this part of the state. Not exactly what I expected to find in central Colorado. Very beautiful, but remote. Click here to see a Google 'street view' of the area east of town.
