The County has said that their contractor will the taking next week off because of the holiday & the high traffic volume expected in the canyon. They will start paving on July 10th & expect that to take 20+ working days which puts the completion in mid to late August.

Thanks & Adios, CJD

Solving your bear problem

We're hearing about a lot of bear problems this year.
Once they have found food on your property, they will be back.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife has a whole section on their website about dealing with bears.

Lots of Bear Problems this Year

We returned home last night to find a bear had broken out a ground-floor window and proceeded to ransack the kitchen while we were gone. We had no food, trash, or hummingbird feeders outside, and no windows open. Of additional concern is that he tried to come in our front door first, so it appears he views houses in general as food sources, since he attempted entry there before coming to back of the house where the kitchen is located. He also seemed to know exactly how to get in, and where to go and what to do once inside.

He may have cut a paw on the broken glass, since we found dried blood in and outside the house. Be on the lookout for a wounded bear who has no qualms of breaking and entering, and likes beef, sugar, chocolate, Crisco, honey, and Doritos.

Seriously, though, it sounds like this bear (and possibly more) are making the rounds and have no fear.

Looking for a Few Good & Strong Men

I am the book tent coordinator. Station 1 is full again and I need to move book boxes out of the fire house and into a storage area near the intersection of Prospect and Overland Trail. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find storage on the mountain. A company I do contract work for is allowing me to store the book boxes until the festival. I need guys and gals who can help move the books on to trailers and trucks and then drive down to the storage building and unload.
Since the fire house is already full and we are sorting on Friday, I need to move these boxes sooner than ASAP. I would like to move them this coming Saturday, July 1, 2017around 9 AM. Yes, I know it is the 4th of July weekend and some people are going on vacation or have plans but this needs to be done and I just found the storage building on Thursday.
If you can help, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call at 221-2024 .
Thank you for your help,
Carolyn Stanley

More About Bears

Probably the largest black bear I've seen was on my neighbors deck this morning.
It wasn't afraid of the dogs or her yelling at it.
She was trapped inside as he wouldn't leave so she called me and I responded.
When I drove up to the house it walked off the deck and then returned.
I approached the deck and it stood there staring at me and finally wandered off.
I would consider it dangerous as usually noise will send them scurrying
This occurred at 12000 Rist Canyon Rd. just across from station 1 RCVFD
