A perfect vanishing point road bathed in the golden last light of the day leads to a century old farm near Carr in northern Colorado. I'm sure in other parts of the world that hundred-year old farms are probably common, but in state settled so late they are a pretty big deal and rare.
Big changes are coming to this area though, recent oil finds in the Niobrara Shale Formation have set off an oil rush, the likes of which we have not seen in NE CO in my lifetime. It's still a bit too early to tell how big this is going to get, but I've seen figures indicating billions of dollars in oil development is likely on the way. For those of you in Colorado, now would be a great time to begin documenting a boom as it happens.
