Homestead Sunrise

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado

The historic Egli house with iconic windmill has seen many spectacular prairie sunrises since the early 20th century. Settled by Swiss immigrants Gottlieb and Rose Egli, who grew alfalfa and green beans on 500 acres, the land was turned over to the U.S. Army for WWII bomb making. The house and barn are the only buildings remaining from settlement in a story that has traveled full circle from roaming bison and nomadic Plains Indians, homesteading, bomb building and pesticide manufacturing, Superfund cleanup site, back to a refuge for wildlife and people. My friend Lucille Egli, who grew up in the house, was very proud to see the Arsenal become a place for people to experience the wonders of the shortgrass prairie. .

Homestead Sunrise print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
