Jennifer at Easter

I thought I'd try to find some of Jennifer's old photos from Easter. I was thinking of the photo of her in the basement hunting for easter eggs indoors. Easter is a dicey time of year for us as it's in the spring. And, although the date of Easter moves around every year, you never really know whether the Easter Bunny should hide the eggs inside or out, as a foot of snow can ruin an outdoor egg hunt.

Canyons of the Front Range

I was riding with Margie today, and we were arguing about the canyons along the front range, so I thought I'd document them here as I haven't done this before for whatever reason.

1) Clear Creek Canyon. Clear Creek Canyon begins in Golden at the intersection of U.S. Highway 6, Colorado State Highway 58, and Colorado State Highway 93. Clear Creek Drainage Basin.

2) Golden Gate Canyon. Just north of Clear Creek Canyon is Golden Gate Canyon. Golden Gate Canyon Road, (Jefferson County Road 70), goes west from Colorado State Highway 93 to Golden Gate Canyon State park, and continues on to State Highway 119. At the Gilpin County line, the road changes from Jefferson County Road 70 to Colorado State Highway 46.

3) Coal Creek Canyon. The next canyon north of Golden Gate Canyon is Coal Creek Canyon. Coal Creek Canyon (Colorado State Highway 72) connects Colorado State Highway 93 to Colorado State Highway 119.

4) Boulder Canyon. The next canyon north of Coal Creek Canyon is Boulder Canyon. Boulder Canyon (Colorado State Highway 119) connects Nederland to Boulder.

Forced-labor Reports Spur Raid in Lyons, Colorado

I met this guy today when I was riding through the Evergreen area on Highway 74. He was stopped and somewhat disoriented - from out of state - Ohio I think. So, we rode together for a bit. He wanted to go up the Peak to Peak Highway (SH 119) and to Lyons, so we rode up this way. We stopped in Nederland for lunch, but this ugly-faced woman started screaming at me for riding the wrong way down a 1-way street in Nederland. I told her "If I had a face like yours, I think I'd probably shut my fat mouth".

Then, we left and rode up to Lyons. In Lyons, I was trying to explain to him that, they were using slave labor to harvest sandstone from a sandstone quarry in Lyons fairly in the year 2000 or so. So, when I got home I thought I'd look it up and see if I could verify my recollections.

I was able to find this one article on the story. Basically, they had some illegal immigrants up there, that were being forced to work for free, which is the definition of slavery, last time I checked. Pretty crazy.
