    Portrait of twelve-year-old Eugenia Ransom Kennicott and a dog, Penny, by a picket fence in Westcliffe. An avid photographer, Eugenia lived with her family on a homestead in the Wet Mountain Valley in the early twentieth century. Her photos, along with the diary of her sister Anna, survive to this day and provide valuable insight into Colorado's homesteading era.
