There are ten of these statues across America. This is the one in Lamar, CO. They depict a frontier woman with one child clinging to her skirt and one in her arm. In the other arm is a rifle. Lamar is in the southeastern corner of Colorado. Once you leave Colorado Springs it’s like a whole different state – hotter, lower, more hard scrabble.
