MTN Town Magazine- Colorado Spring/Summer 2015

Posted by on Jun 8, 2015 in MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

Wow, spring is a wet one in our Colorado mountain towns, but it feels like the clouds are parting and the green is shining through. At 10,000ft it takes a little longer for the leaves and grass to really get going. Spring snows equal great river flows and the rivers are up. Either way I am going to get out and have some fun – you should too! Gold Dress by Photo by Memry, Memry Anderson   About a year ago, as we were finishing up the winter issue of MTN Town Magazine, I realized that the majority of the stories we were publishing involved men. I remember when I moved here...

The 10th Mountain Division and the Ski Trooper

Posted by on May 25, 2015 in MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

  The Legend of 10th Mountain Division and the Ski Trooper – A plant’s roots can tell us so much about the history of that plant, including how it has adapted to survive in its environment. The same is true for human history. Buried away like the roots of a plant in the pages of books, old films and photos, is the history of the human race waiting to divulge itself.   A little free time for Camp Hale Troops Several years ago I tackled a personal goal, which had been on my bucket list for years. I just needed the right combination of relationships to come together in order for it...

Camelbak Snoblast – MTN Town Gear Review

Posted by on May 1, 2015 in Bicycling, Hike, MTN Town Magazine, Shop, Skiing & Snowboarding | 0 comments

I was one lucky woman to receive a Camelbak Snoblast Hydration Pack as a gift for Christmas this past year. My old Camelbak was ancient and not suited for a variety of weather conditions. It was the first pack I could take out skiing with me that allowed me to keep my water from freezing up. From the moment I loaded it up I was impressed and it has served me well through the winter season and now into spring. Here is what I love about it:   It’s comfortable the straps are wide and padded nicely so they do not cut or bind when I wear lighter clothing....

Nepal Earthquake – How to Assist Now through Charlie MacArthur

Posted by on Apr 29, 2015 in Community, Events | 0 comments

As we are all aware Nepal has suffered a devastating Earthquake killing thousands and leveling whole towns and villages. I myself have never been to Nepal but have met many wonderful Nepalese who have called Colorado’s mountain towns their home away from home. Most of us can connect with these people who also live in and love the mountains that surround them. I have heard a lot of people ask “How can I help?” I did a post recently on Facebook to assist people in locating a legitimate charity that donates the majority of their funds to their cause.   Just recently I saw a post from a Snowmass...
