Theodore Roosevelt in Colorado

Did you know that President Theodore Roosevelt visited Colorado many times, not just on official business but also for recreation? Roosevelt loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting in Colorado.  A copy of TR’s Colorado hunting license from 1905 can be found in the Biennial Report of the State Game and Fish Commissioner for that year (also shown below; click image to enlarge). The President hunted bear near Glenwood Springs; a photo of his return from the hunt can be viewed online courtesy of the Denver Public Library.
