Good idea. There is the rec center everyone wants. Building already in place, just needs tuning up.

Where is the opinion of the Seirra club on this? If my memory serves me correct, they were the ones who, like Nadja said, held us to a higher standard because of our proximity to the Zirkel Wilderness, which we (Craig and Hayden) were presumably polluting.
If Tri-State, and Hayden for that matter, are such dirty power plants, wouldn't we see it in our skies, on our windows and in our lungs? The skies above our corner of this great state are some of the most blue ever seen. Want pollution, drive down Floyd hill or even better, drive into Steamboat on a cold winter morning, they have their own version of the brown cloud on cold mornings.....everyone burning wood to keep warm. As far as electric cars are concerned, try going up Rabbit ears in one, would take you a couple hours at 12 feet per minute. How about towing a trailer with 4 horses in it? Ha, 4 horses is about all it would put out.
Green energy is a great alternate source of power, but it is not the answer and we should have the choice wether to use it or not. Wind does not always blow and the sun does not always shine. However, no matter the situation, burning coal heats water which makes the steam to turn the turbine...rain, clouds, shine or snow.
Great, more BS by our planet saving whack jobs. How about this oh wise ones...... We remove you completely from the fossil fueled power grid. No computer to complain on, no lights to do your research to complain about and no electricity whatsoever. How long do you think you will last?
I am all for green energy, but it should be if I want to go that way, not because I am told to. This is America, who do you think you are? Coal will always be here for us, and Tri-State is one of the cleanest power providers around. I am grateful for those who dig it up and for those who put it to use to make my life more manageable. It would be simply miserable any other way.
This crap is just fluff, nothing more, but a whole lot less. Wanna whine, go whine at China.
And was anyone injured?
Maybe some of that cute little fencing like we have on the cliff going to Steamboat would help.
200 tones is not going to let much get in its way, including chain link fence. Just waiting on the next rockfall here.
OK, I'll play:
What do I win??
All fun aside, a great picture of the peaks, they are spectacular in the fall and the view over the valley from the pull-off about a mile from the base parking lot is unmatched. Must be able to see for a hundred miles on a clear day.
Nice job Nate, I like seeing stuff like this.
And Steve, we love ya man, always.
Sounds like a great plan to me, I would be more than happy to pay an extra $14.50 on my registration to have money for emergency medical support.
We live in a remote, dangerous place, why not give up a few more bucks to improve chances of survival in ones most desperate moments?
You can count me in, heck, I'll pay $20 more.
Hope for a speedy recovery, but, as usual, I have a question.
Have the rules changed about riding bikes on the highway?
I often see people riding against traffic, quite often going south on Ranney towards Loudy.
I was taught to ride with the flow of traffic, not against it, so that is why I am asking if the rules have changed.
If he was riding west on 4th st, then he was riding against the flow. Most people are looking west when turning to go east on 4th, not thinking to give a glance in the other direction because, well, nothing is supposed to be coming from that direction. No excuse not to look, but it happens.
Not being critical, just wanting to clarify.
