Hygiene, Colorado

Hygiene is a little Colorado town with a funny name 18 miles north northeast of Boulder. But I seriously wanted to go back there, after exploring the area a week ago on a Boulder County-sponsored Birds of Prey tour.

I especially wanted to photograph a silo painted with sunflowers that I had seen then but hadn’t had a chance to shoot. I did today:

This silo is a couple of miles west of Hygiene. The town got its name not because it’s particularly clean, but rather because Rev. Jacob Flory established a “hygiene sanitarium” for tuberculosis patients there in 1882.

Also close to Hygiene I saw this little falcon. The Kestrel is the smallest falcon we have in America.

The beauty that I find on my photo expeditions is often natural. But humans can create it too.
