A new website of Tom Huber’s publication, the Hayden's Landscapes Revisited, offers a historical time-lapse of space over time. It lets you compare Colorado's past to Colorado's present. Huber searched out locations where artists sketched landscapes in 1873 for the Hayden Geological Survey. His photos and drawings are placed side by side online at Hayden's Landscapes Revisited. Huber says some of the landscapes have changed quite a bit and others hardly at all. The Hayden Survey, along with others, eventually became part of the United States Geological Survey.
