Speaking of alternative transportation, you might want to consider it this weekend and next. The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office has announced it will be conducting sobriety checkpoints between 5 p.m. – 12 midnight on Aug. 25, and Sept. 1. (We’re thinking these won’t include coffee and pastries like the Float to Work station.)
Sure, riding Hermosa Creek can be a blast – but this time, we mean this literally. The San Juan National Forest in conjunction with Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be conducting blasting operations on the upper part of Hermosa Creek today, Thurs., Aug. 10, at about 3 p.m.
