Lookin' like the old west

Buena Vista is central to kayaking, rafting and mountain climbing in Colorado.  It is a small town and some of the streets are still unpaved...in fact Main Street has only been paved for 50 years or so.  Now it is unpaved again...looking a bit like the old west...as we prepare for pedestrian bumpouts, benches, landscaping and new lighting along our main drag.  BV as we call it...is a popular area for retirement and second homes. Recently younger families are moving here to live where they play and enjoy small town mountain living.  It feels as though fresh thinking has reached critical mass here.  Green is in, although the valley is still wearing winter brown backed by white peaks.  We will never be Aspen or Vail...we are OK with that.  Come join us...or at least drop by.

Congratulations on your main street upgrades, I'm sure you will enjoy them once construction is complete. Estes Park isn't Aspen or Vail, either, and we're OK with that, too!

Mal, I think I could handle living there.  It looks so charming and inviting.  Thanks for the brief glimpse.
