    Re: ROYAL GORGE COLORADO 1909

    I've been to Colorado numerous times and find it beautiful in the summer time. Can't say much for the winters there or anywhere else for that matter. Can't take the cold anymore. Old Fartitis has set in! I discovered the little town of Lake City one year and found it and the people wonderful to visit with outside of the tourist trade. Monty

    Monty,

    They aren't outside the tourist biz any more. It booms up there
    After they did all that research about Al Packer and all I guess everybody has to be a part of that history.

    The only reason I would go up there is that the Gold panning is SUPER, and (a little known secret...)
    The fly fishing is even better! But don't tell anyone,
    Those local folks at lake City don't even talk about it much. LOL

    Nickel,
    We live just south of Denver now.
    Let's get together before spring and compare some notes.
    That way we will be ready to go this spring.
    I have a gut feeling this is going to be a great year.
    Cold a snow here on this MLK holiday.

    Old dog I was there in the off season, during the Elk season. Most of the shops were open but not any tourist business to amount to anything. I was able to visit with many of the shop owners about the area and the town in particular. They told me their ancestors were German immigrants from a small town in Texas. The said that they just up and moved the whole town from Texas to Colorado. I got acquainted with the County Shderiff at the time and he said that 90% of his county was federal land so his actual jurisdiction was very small. He had one deputy and a lady that answered the phone and radios and did some clerical work. A few months after my last visit I read in the paper where his deputy was shot and killed by two drug smugglers during a nighttime traffic stop. I sent him a letter of condolence. They didn't have a high school and all the kids were bussed to Gunnison. They all had an adoptive family in Gunnison where they spent the night when the pass was snowed in and they couldn't get home. Of course I learned all about the Packer incident and the so called cannibalism. Oh, and the restaurant at the San Cristobal Lodge was closed but they opened it up and cooked us a steak because there wasn't another eating place open in town. Very nice of them. The cook just happened to be there and wanted somethng to do I think. Anyway, I imagine tourist season would be a busy time like you said. Monty

    The bridge is cool. I got to drive my car over it a few years ago. I don't know if you still can. It's really neat, but it is a tourist trap. So be a tourist, nothing said locals can't be tourist. LOL
