Wink Do I have to walk?

(((((roo)))))

I love Colorado, and if I were ever to finally leave California, it would be to live in Colorado. My mother was born there in a coal camp called Sopris that is now no more than a smooth spot on the south eastern prairie. She has family in Pueblo and the Springs. I have been to the Denver area twice in my life, once as a kid when we went to Estes Park, camped at Lake Granby, rode horses; and again when I was writing my master's thesis on my mother's life and the coal mining labor wars in Colorado. Most of my Colorado time, however, has been spent in Durango. My father and I made many a pack trip into the San Juans, just him, me, and our horses. I loved those times.
