What a good idea;simultaneous roadwork on both ends of town to maximize the inconvenience and frustration of all road users. I don't suppose they could finish the work on one end of town before starting in on the other? It certainly seems like better planning could have happened.
This seems to be one of those rare occasions when most of the regulars agree on something. What a poor move on the part of the DOW,moving a mother elk and leaving her calf unattended and "vulnerable."You bet it's vulnerable! For anyone who complained about the trail closures or ignored them and contributed to this travesty occurring, shame on you.The distinct possibility that this calf will not make it is on your head.
I don't think Pippin got Elevenses either.
I remember that bitter cold (definitely in the mid to late 80's,perhaps '86?) and that was when the record for coldest recorded temperature in Colorado history occurred; -61 degrees in Maybell. Don't remember if that record has since been broken. I would be happy to never see a temperature that cold ever again.
Attaboy,Roddy! What an adventure you and your crew are having! I'm always glad to read your latest reports. All this and the World Cup too...
Still a pretty cool photo,don't you think?
Me too Rhys! (For all the reasons you do,and then some.)
Let's not forget about a few other shows over the years. John Hiatt and the Goners(with Sonny Landreth,both at Howelson and at the base of the mountain in different years),Robben Ford on the Courthouse lawn (David Grisman too),Al Stewart on Headwall,Los Lobos at Howelson,Dark Star Orchestra at Headwall;wow! We've had some great shows here over the years! (At least for those that enjoy such music.)
I can't either,Mark.
That guy,Rhys; is there anything he hasn't done or tried? Sure helps to keep this blog interesting. (In coke,I worry more about the high fructose corn syrup;hard to get away from that stuff.)
