Galt's Gulch

For fans of Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged, here's the place that inspired Galt's Gulch: a place called Ouray, Colorado that Rand fell in love with on a brief visit, pictured here courtesy of Gus van Horn. You can almost picture the electronic screen just above the trees, can't you . . . ?

Jay Ambrose at the Scripps Howard News Service reviews the Objectivist conference recently held up the road from here in Telluride. It sounds like he had a ball.

  1. No you can't picture the electronic screen as that would resemble the forest image reflected from another valley nearby.

    You can see the entrances to Francisco's copper mines though...
