Colorado Terrain Park

Jeff writes, "Spent a day working with my brother and his sons creating a terrain park on a hill on his property. With shovels and a tractor, we straightened a huge stump at the top and leveled it out for a sweet launch zone, surrounding it with logs and adding dirt to smooth the slope. Then we added curved banks to the left and right, a path (unmarked, but called "Tunnel of Love") through some trees, and shaped the multiple jump zones at the bottom. I used my GPS unit to obtain the elevation at the top of the stump: 7,607 feet. You can see Pikes Peak from the top."

Gear Room

Kristy, recently sent us this map along with the following description: "A re-creation of the chaos, this pen-and-ink drawing of the Women's Adventure magazine gear room shows interns and newbie editors (like me) where to find and where to put all the stuff we get in the mail. Because we just finished sending back a bunch of test gear from our Editor's Choice Award testing, the place is sparkling compared to the chaos of last month, largely in thanks to our Office Manager, Lynne Boyle, our Photographer, Corrynn Cochran, and our Gear Editor, Karina Evertsen."

Snooks Bottom

Joe sent us a map of Snooks Bottom. He describes it as "a public space with a pond of about 12 acres. It is directly adjacent to the Colorado River. It is a great spot to walk dogs, swim in the summer, watch birds. We went there yesterday and saw 3 hawks in the space of about 30 minutes. We also have seen Blue Herons, Canadian Geese, Magpies, and lots of small wrens. In warmer weather you can also hear Colorado River toads trilling. The drone of Interstate 70 is constant in the daylight hours. The Rio Grande RR can be heard a lot as well."
