The Dry: a community built by black homesteaders in southeastern Colorado

Alice McDonald says The Dry is a joyful place to be, and if you are quiet and observant you’ll see all kinds of wildlife, perhaps a herd of antelope, a snake slithering by, a rabbit hidden in the shade of a cactus and you’ll even hear the bugs rustling in the grass.

She was born during The Dust Bowl in 1934 and grew up on The Dry south of Manzanola about an hour east of Pueblo.
