No More Dreaming...We Have a White Christmas. You wouldn't think Colorado would be without a white Christmas, but this year we were starting to wonder. We've been in a summer time drought that was followed by a winter time drought, but the Christmas Gods have blessed us with a White Christmas. Today over 3 inches of snow has fallen in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. It's tapered off tonight, but is still coming down. Tomorrow is going to be a White Christmas. Everyone is so happy to see the snow and the moisture.  My family is traveling for Christmas. We are in Glenwood Springs which is only about 2 hours away from our house, but it's world away in terms in people and things to do. The weather patterns are similar. Glenwood Springs is a mountain town like my own mountain town, except it's b...

Stay, Play and Get Scared in Colorado. The Hotel Colorado is Home to Some Permanent Guests. If you are looking for a haunting good time, The Hotel Colorado may have just what you are looking for. This grand hotel is located in Glenwood Springs and has hosted some pretty famous people over the years, and some of them are refusing to leave. Walter Devereaux built this grand establishment in 1891. It was quite the draw for such famous guests as Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and William Taft. Al Capone and his buddies also spent time at the hotel. Devereaux is still said to be hanging out, and you can smell his cigar smoke. During WWII the hotel was used as a naval hospital. At this time a chamber maid was caught in a lovers triangle and killed by a jealous lover. Employees report hearing her ...

Just pass the round about with the naked mountain climber, yes you read this right. In the center of our little town of Silt, COLORADO round about is the naked mountain climber made out of stone. Yes the statue is all about the things you can do in COLORADO. It made national attention last fall, see this link on Denver channel , it was the talk of the whole valley. http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/20689868/detail.html Back to the reason of this blog is just behind the statue is the BEST BBQ on the Western Slope of COLORADO. Red Brick BBQ is owned by Daniel & Molly Fredrich of Silt. As you can tell by the picture they have fun with what they do. Daniel is from Texas but he loves COLORADOand he can smoke any kind of meat and make it taste GREAT! Daniel and Molly were trained in the cu...

Well the week started out with a Rock slide on 1-70 in the Glenwood Springs Canyon closing it for 5 days in both directions. Living in this beautiful state you never know when rock slides, mudslides or avalanches will happen. It really keeps you on your toes in a sense. When you are driving through the canyons getting to work or a client's home it goes through your mind what could happen. Most of us are on our own mission and want to just get our tasks done for the day so when we are inconvienced by acts of nature it makes a few mad but most of us are happy no one (this time) was hurt. I think it is really amazing to hear people say "What is Taking so LONG to clean up! Well let me think, the boulders are 6' x 8' & 10' by 20' in size and my rake and yard equipment just can't do this tas...

When a property goes up for sale and it is cluttered and not cleaned to the finest detail, your potential buyer will click right pass it on the Internet where most of your leads will come from. Unless you want them to give you a bid for a fix it up you better clean it up. Right now as there are 100's of homes on the market and 100's more now that spring is around the corner you ...
