Description

This home movie documents the daily lives and activities of the Cochran family including fishing trips and vacations in Colorado. The film begins with footage of the family socializing and fishing at a boat house and a trip to what appears to be New Mexico where the children swim in a hotel pool (00:00-03:57). The remainder of the film takes place during the family's Colorado vacation (03:57-23:09). The family rides go carts at Pagosa Hot Springs, boards the Denver & Rio Grande train in Durango where they observe Native Americans performing for tourists, and shoot footage from the moving train. This footage includes a man making his own home movies from the roadside of the train passing (13:16) and a man riding a horse alongside the train. The family next stops at the Manor Hotel and visits a marker dedicated to the Reverend Marvin and his children Amelia and Pauline Hudson. They observe Bear Creek Falls and Mount Abrams in the Uncompahgre National Forest, the Continental Divide at Monarch Pass, and end the film with a stop at an old West town likely in Colorado Springs where they watch a gun fight performance.
