Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival Promises Fall Fun

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.

Do You Need A Retreat?

Roads Traveled by With Linda L. Osmundson

The definition of a retreat is taking time away from ordinary life, withdrawing from everyday concerns, places, and emotions. Writer friends seek a place with no interruptions like phones, family, TV, or even the Internet. They strive for a place to keep their thought processes moving and words flowing.

Where can one go on to get away? Perhaps you settle in an inner sanctum within your home; an
