There is a fear in the West, the old west that is. The monster of suburbia now stretching from south of Colorado springs north to the state line of Wyoming is not stoppable. Ranching communities one by one have fallen and been transformed into a form of urban sprawl that could just as easily be in Atlanta or Dallas has spread across the front range of the Rocky Mountains. This line of development is now north of Fort Collins quickly approaching Wyoming. I’m going to spend the spring with my camera documenting it, trying to understand the changes it brings to communities. A less writing, more photographing, let the image tell the story kind of thing.
