[Graphic] Map 2 with link to higher quality map. (Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. Drawn by John Piveral.)

2. Why might it have been important for Hornbek's ranch to be near each of these?

* 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.
