Warmer temperatures, the sounds of children playing outside, and baseball on TV can only mean one thing: it is officially summer and the Limon Heritage Museum is open for its 24th season! Venture back to the “good old days” by window shopping at Gates Mercantile, ordering a Coke at Houtz Drug Store, hopping aboard the Pullman Dining Car, or learning a thing or two in the one-room Pioneer Schoolhouse. Colorful, fragrant gardens; one-of-

Two routes take you to Yellowstone National Park, I-25 or Highway 287. Both present tourist attractions. We’ve already covered the detour to Fort Laramie, so we’ll go straight to Douglas via I-25 north.

Yes, Yellowstone and the Grand Teton Mountains are probably the most well known destinations in Wyoming. However, there are other smaller interesting tourist attractions. We travel I-80 often in route to Salt Lake City to see grandchildren but seldom go north on I-25.

I dreamed of visiting many places after graduation, the Rocky Mountain’s tree line, twin cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, the Great Salt Lake, Arizona’s desert, and both oceans to name a few.
Now, I’ve seen them all and more. Tears filled my eyes at my first glimpse of the mountains when I neared Denver. I’d never seen anything so close to Heaven. On our first trip to my Minnesotan husband’s hometown, he laughed when I asked if a huge lake were manmade like

Now that the overeating of Thanksgiving and the rush of Black Friday has passed, we can look forward to the rest of the holiday season. Before we know it, New Years will be here. We need to form our resolution list, check it twice,

My husband Bob and I flew to San Diego a day early for our scheduled Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the MS Statandam. Good thing. Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew

Few animals evoke Colorado’s rugged and unforgiving mountains like the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Yet the vertical terrain that keeps sheep safe from predators also limits opportunities for Coloradans to view and appreciate Colorado’s state animal. A happy exception for wildlife watchers is Georgetown, where the Town of Georgetown, the Georgetown Trust and Gateway Visitor Center, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) are finalizing preparations for the 8th Annual Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival. The festival is timed to coincide with

Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from college in Washington state. To celebrate her accomplishment, she and a friend have decided to paddle their sea kayaks on a 1200-mile journey through the Inside Passage to Alaska. She will be sending written updates and photos of her adventure throughout the summer.
Paddling is all about rhythm.
