“It is the tourist who travels much who knows the real value of a...good guide...from the fact that, without [one], he is liable to pass through the country in ignorance of its history and scenic wonders.
“Travel is a great educator provided you are a close observer and acquaint yourself with the history of each part of the country you pass through, as it is all rich in history.
--John O'Byrne, Pikes Peak or Bust and Historical Sketches of the Wild West, 1923
