John Denver sang it. We keep singing it. Central Colorado is off the hook and it’s “good to be back home again.” Aspen recently got a 100-year record storm that dropped about three feet in that many days. Marble area in the West Elk Mountains has quietly followed along. After a fun but tough traveling journalism trip in the European Alps, we’re enjoying the fluffy powdery quieteness of a real winter in our home place.
Thanks Joe Risi and Blake Gordon for help with the shoveling!
