  • Palabras Pintorescas - The growing years of Carl and Coyote

    When a bunch of ranchers get together, no matter the occasion, the discussions are always lively. My most recent encounter with my longtime rancher friends was at Geraldine Huston’s memorial service. This was a very sad event, but she would have loved the homemade foods and strong coffee served at lunch afterward. Geri was one of many longtime ranching wives from this area.

  • An adventure to the South Pole

    Lorraine Hurtado, a Chacon resident, spent a season in Antarctica. She went on  the advice of her nephew Andres Martinez, son of Phil and her sister Mary Ann. Andres has worked at the South Pole for 12 years. He is an engineer. He helped build the facility.
    Lorraine wanted to get out and have a new adventure away from her home and familiar surroundings for a while. She had lost her husband of 52 years and needed a change.

  • Cowgirl apparel and calendars

    I was the happy recipient of some fabulous calendars this year. The Muench Colorado photography calendar brought back so many memories of our visits to this picturesque state. Viva Colorado, as they say, and I could take the same spectacular mountain snow scenes right here from my yard as I write this.
