Map 3: Homestead Plots in the Florissant region.

[Graphic] Map 3 with link to higher quality map. (Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument.)

1. Use the map scale and a compass to determine a one-mile and a two-mile radius from Hornbek's home (shown as a black square). How many neighbors did Hornbek have within a one mile radius in 1878? 1880? 1889?

2. Do you think Hornbek led an isolated life? Why or why not?

* The map on the screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of this map, but be aware that the file will take as much as two minutes to a load with a 28.8K modem.
