Rocky Mountain Land Library

Jeffrey Lee and his wife, Ann Martin, both employees at Colorado’s Tattered Cover Book Store (a frequent stop when I was living out there), have amassed a 30,000-volume collection on “the land and people’s connection to the land” called the Rocky Mountain Land Library. They’ve been storing the books in their Humboldt Street apartment, and after 23 years, the house is being sold. After years of looking for a site, followed by almost six years of discussion, Lee said, he is close to signing a 99-year lease for a residential land-study center at South Park’s circa-1863 Buffalo Peaks Ranch along the Middle Fork of the South Platte River.

    Hello Coldsplinters,
    Thanks for your thoughts, There are dozens of ski resorts throughout the Rocky Mountains. Many of them are small such as Beaver Mountain Ski Resort just a few miles from my home. But, there are others that warrant at least one visit in a lifetime. Some of these resorts may offer star gazing, while others showcase the magnificent beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Whichever the case, here are my picks for the top resorts. (These are not listed in any particular order.)
    Regards
