humbling...only reinforces that I was never born with any athletic talent and that I'm old. I'm just happy to still grind it out to the top (and not croak) shy of 2 hrs.

Yesterday, just traveled back from riding the Monarch Crest-Silver-Rainbow w/ a couple of my best cycling buddies...and this timely article is in the Pilot...Thanks Kent, Jack, Scott et al. (To my eye, is the trail that Chris is climbing-the one his best buddy quad-paw has already summited-the two track leading to the start of GTR?).

Terrific citizens, WM, Steve and Les. Still requires continued vigilance (+/- enforcement) on the commercial side of things since it appears the majority of the nocturnal bear activity seems to be town.

Nice glimpse into what makes this happen. Thanks to the volunteers and corporate sponsors...each year, it seems even more spectacular and last evening was no exception.

Stuart, hilarious and a good one!
I agree with you and with Bill Murray from Ghostbusters ..."[Dana is possessed] Dr. Peter Venkman: I make it a rule never to get involved with possessed people. [Dana starts passionately making out with him] Dr. Peter Venkman: Actually, it's more of a guideline than a rule..."

(IMO) most folks would lean towards the laissez-faire side of this issue (guidelines rather than laws/rules) and enforce-patrol those locales where there are "incidents" ("get off my lawn"-Mr. Wilson v. Dennis Menace), safety and a need.

But enough about this. We need to form a few more committees, hire some more consultants and obtain more citizen input about where to put the new police station.

Once again we face the same issue (as aspen, durango etc) residential bear resistant bins and enforcement for the downtown commercial ones). retrofitted hardware/labor could be a great project for some budding entrepreneur (or the SSHS, scouts or?).

Agree with Dan.
For the hundreds of kids, clients, Vets and their families & volunteers, you have been recognized as an 'above an essential asset' to the program.

We have all witnessed the impact of YOUR reassuring "you can do this" look to the frustrated face of a new adaptive kid or veteran.

We all look forward to your involvement in some of the on mtn winter programs next winter. ...can't imagine how the summer camp outs with the Vets and their families up @ Hahns Peak Lake will change. ..more mid week trips to Mary Jane coming this winter...

ah. end of the seaon....waxing reminiscent of the '11 headline: Referendum 2B on Tuesday, a 0.25 percent tax increase that will help fund the winter air service program at Yampa Valley Regional Airport.

(IMO) Given long term forest land usage, it seems our community based USFS folks (and CSFS) have and continue to do a balanced and terrific job in prioritizing new and existing projects. thanks, folks.
