Check out this picture (reprinted with permission from the Free Daily Observer)- a pretty funny local summation of traveling around those parts (items of interest include the location of where “Bigfoot, Elvis, and JFK play poker - but not together, Bigfoot cheats!” and where the “Black Helicopters are hovering and stomachs are fluttering,” warnings about “Knuckleheads driving like tourists!”, and the numerous locations at which one must be alert for abominable snowmen herding elk. Oh, also, kids, traffic and construction. Welcome to Paonia!

11200 ft of pickin' & singin'

11200 ft of pickin & grinnin

Playing at 11,200 ft. at the top of Aspen Mountain in Colorado.  Afterwards we discovered that if we had been 800 feet higher, and in an airplane, the oxygen masks would have dropped out of the ceiling.  Go figure.  Talk about “Rocky Mountain High.”  That, and the fact that despite 70+ sunblock, we still managed to collect some rays.  But, hey, oxygen deprivation is a recreational sport, right?

Stevie at, you guessed it, the top of Independence Pass.  DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE THIS ROAD IN A TRAILER OR RV!  This makes James Bond roads look like high school driving class…uni-directional bits with no guardrails…awesome.  But well worth the drive if you’re low on your monthly white-knuckle quota.

No, we’re not paid by the Colorado Department of Tourism.  Maybe we should be?

KRFC is a great community radio station in a great community (Fort Collins, CO).  Here we are doing the Live@Lunch series.  Thankfully the camera doesn’t show pictures of C gurgling through her water bottle on the air.
