Dog and Truck, Colorado, 2001

Photograph by David Alan Harvey

A speckled dog catches a ride in Rico, Colorado, the center of a silver mining boom in the late 1800s. But the heyday is long since over, the mines are closed, and the town population is down to fewer than 200 year-round residents. And for many in this quirky mountain town, that’s just fine.
