In the late 1930s my parents owned Emerald Valley Guest Ranch in Colorado Springs, on Cheyenne Mountain, overlooking Colorado's luxury Broadmoor Hotel. The ranch accommodated mostly hotel guests who wished to "rough it" for several days.
In the early 1940s World War II Years they converted the dude ranch into a boys' camp, and packed up their gift shop large inventory of Indian Jewelry. I acquired the collection many years later. Now it is time for us to downsize.
