From the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), August 31, 1911, page 8:
Returned From Colorado Trip.
Miss Francis Montgomery, who has been visiting with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Montgomery of Oregon, in Denver, and Colorado Springs, Col., and other tourist resorts in the far-famed west, returned home last week.
Miss Montgomery had a most delightful trip, viewing many places where Nature seems to have tried herself at “painting the rainbow,” and out doing her most picturesque freaks of natural art. The weather was delightful in the mountains of Colorado and she returns home as fresh as the morning dew which hangs from the mountain flowers of that dustless region and tourists’ paradise.
