maybe it's "historian gone wrong"! See yesterday's post, which, in embarrassment, I was going to remove--but it can also serve as a bit of an object lesson. Showed the postcard to Lila, excited to find a new image neither of us had seen before, and she simply said "Maybe it's a different Bear Creek."
Duh. Why hadn't I considered that, as it isn't "our" Bear Creek, it couldn't just be someone else's Bear Creek?? Bear Creeks are probably a dime a dozen on the Front Range. This one could be in Colorado Springs, or maybe even Montana. So, if this appears to be "your" local Bear Creek, let me know--I might have a postcard for you!
See, told you I wasn't a "real" historian!
