Bear Lake Parking Lot Closed June 17 Through June 21 Pavement Preservation Project In Numerous Locations Throughout The Summer In Rocky Mountain National Park Beginning at 6 p.m. Monday June 17, through 7 a.m. Friday, June 21, the Bear Lake Parking Area in Rocky Mountain National Park will be closed to all uses for a pavement preservation project. On Monday, June 17, shuttle buses will continue to operate from the Bear Lake Parking Area until 7:30 p.m. Beginning on Tuesday, June 18 through Thursday, June 20, park shuttle buses will not be dropping off or picking up visitors at the Bear Lake shuttle stop. All other bus stops in the Bear Lake corridor, including the Glacier Gorge Trailhead bus stop, will be operational. Beginning Monday, June 10, staging for the pavement preservation project took place in the Park & Ride lot along the Bear Lake Road corridor. The staging area will fill approximately 100 parking spaces, making these unavailable to the public, until the fall. Since 2016, park staff have restricted vehicle access in the Bear Lake Road corridor when parking areas filled and heavy congestion warranted. Due to less parking availability, particularly from June 18 through June 20, park visitors who plan to hike in the Bear Lake Road corridor during these three days should plan for vehicle restrictions to occur earlier in the morning. Due to limited parking, park visitors are encouraged to board the Hiker Shuttle. This shuttle runs every 30 minutes from the Estes Park Visitor Center to the Park & Ride on Bear Lake Road. Expect wait times to board the shuttles.

This important project is critical for the long term protection of park roads and parking areas. Due to the elevation of Rocky Mountain National Park and temperatures, resurfacing pavement projects can only take place in the summer. Work will not take place during the weekends or holidays. From Monday, June 10, through Thursday, June 13, work took place in the Moraine Park Campground. From Monday, June 24 through Thursday, June 27, work will occur in the Longs Peak Campground. These campgrounds will be closed during these periods. Other areas of the park that will be impacted throughout the summer by this ongoing pavement preservation project include the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center Parking Lot, Bierstadt Lake Parking Lot, Alluvial Fan Parking Lot, Lawn Lake Parking Lot, Sheep Lakes Parking Lot, Horseshoe Park Overlook, Many Parks Curve Parking Areas, Rainbow Curve Parking Area, Forest Canyon Overlook Parking Area, Rock Cut Parking Area, Lava Cliffs Parking Area, Lumpy Ridge Access Road and numerous smaller parking areas and overlooks. Work will also take place on Bear Lake Road and sections of Trail Ridge Road. Park visitors should expect rolling delays of up to 20 minutes during road work. When specific work dates are scheduled for other areas, this information will be disseminated. For further information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please visit or call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.

It starts at beautiful Georgetown Lake between towering Rocky Mountains and you cruise through what is mostly a downhill and fast course into iconic Idaho Springs. The series wraps up with the Ned*Ned Half Marathon in Nederland on September 7th. Nederland is known for its amazing beauty and the world-renowned Frozen Dead Guy (I know I have your attention now). It is nestled in a valley carved by glaciers. You will run mostly on trails in beautiful national forests with Barker Reservoir as your backdrop. Motorists are urged to drive with extra caution throughout the day and be especially aware as runners/walkers will be racing throughout the town.

“Why is your column called a column?” Thomas, my nephew visiting from Atlanta, asked at the dinner table. I hadn’t ever thought about it, I admitted. As a columnist, how could I have not considered the origin of the newspaper column? From this point forward, consider it considered. The Thunker is printed as a narrow width of words on the newspaper page (a column), it appears almost every week and is always on page 9 (a page I coveted when Mr. Balderdash appeared there weekly. Tavel and Cleary were both up toward the front of the paper, but when Mr. B. retired, I asked to be moved to his esteemed place on page 9). I am the sole author of The Thunker so it contains my opinions and viewpoints only, with a fact thrown in now and then. My writing is limited to 1000 words each week—the length of one newspaper column—which is where the label columnist originated—but my average is closer to 750 words. This one totals 641. (If you’re interested in substituting for me, please contact me at the e-mail address at the end of this column. I wrote the first— and what I thought would be the only— Thunker column because I wanted to spout off about the wind in Estes Park. I had no intention of writing for 13 years. But don’t let that scare you. You can write one column and leave it at that. No commitment. I might edit the bejeebers out of it but you’ll still get the by-line.) “Have you ever considered writing a column about your favorite word? ” my nephew William asked. Ah, er, um—no. These guys know how to humble me. We went around the table then and named our best-loved locution. Almost all of the words that were mentioned were favorites in part because they are fun to say. Someone suggested the word onomatopoeia—it’s a riot on the tongue! But it was thrown out because no one knew how to spell it. Except 14-year-old Thomas. He’s a spelling whiz. He’s the one who told us that there were eight people—two girls and six

boys his age—who tied for first place in the 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee because the contest ran out of challenging words to spell. The students couldn’t be stumped! Unbelievible. Spelling onomatopoeia is like sounding out Sudoku and kombucha: I never know the order of the vowels. Kumbacha? Kambucho? Ah, kombucha. Fermented black tea. People stand in long lines at farmers markets to buy the odd-tasting beverage. I can remember the spelling rule “i before e” but “o before u,” as in kombucha, doesn’t have the same ring and cling (and onomatopoeia doesn’t have a u so what good is that adage?). Just give me a double-e beer. I can remember that. And since onomatopoeia appears five times in this column, I now remember how to spell that word too. My favorite word? Serendipity. I like it because it bears both happiness and surprise. My nephew William’s first choice: Congeal. “It fits,” he said. It’s not an onomatopoeia but it sets well. My sister Janet’s selection: Indubitable. I’m guessing Descartes would have agreed that it’s fun to say. The 17th century philosopher was looking for an “indubitable foundation for knowledge.” (Janet is a professor of philosophy. That’s indubitably why she quoted Descartes using her favorite word.) My nephew Thomas’s fave: Lugubrious. “It rolls off the tongue,” he said. (I had to ask its definition. It means sad or doleful, which is so not Thomas.) And my affiliate Joe’s favorite word: “Besides Sarah?” he asked. (He wanted to be sure he’d get a piece of that mud pie I made for dessert.) “Con brio!” he said, throwing a fist into the air. “With spirit!” Now that’s worth writing a column about! You may let The Thunker know what you think at her e-mail address, © 2019 Sarah Donohoe

Historic Downtown Walking Tours Offered June 3 Through September 24 Discover the hidden past on a walking tour of downtown Estes Park with the Estes Park Museum. During the tour, participants will be guided by trained docents to explore historical photographs from the museum's collection to aid in comparing the past to the present. In 1905, Cornelius Bond and the Estes Park Town Company hired Abner Sprague to plat the downtown district. Within weeks, lots along the street named "Elkhorn Avenue" were taken up and new businesses were established. Over the course of a decade, the basic footprint of the town we know today was established by many of the buildings that started out as hotels, schools, private homes, and businesses. Identical tours are offered on Mondays and Tuesdays (except Labor Day, September 2) from Monday, June 3 through

Tuesday, September 24. Tours meet at 8:15 a.m. at the northeast corner of Bond Park (next to the bronze Enos Mills sculpture at MacGregor and Park Avenues) and begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. The tour group will walk west through town, and return to the same site by 10:00 a.m., and travel a distance of 0.7 miles. Tours are free, donations are welcome. First come, first served; no reservations required. Space limited to about 12 people. Additionally, tours can be arranged by appointment by calling 970-577-6256. The mission of the Estes Park Museum is to conduct activities that preserve, share and respect the unique history of Estes Park.

David Stirling Exhibit At Lone Tree Antiques And Fine Arts Lone Tree Antiques and Fine Art is pleased to present a summer exhibition of work by the well-known Estes Park artist David Stirling at their gallery in Eaton, Colo. Stirling is one of the most recognized and beloved artists who lived in and portrayed Estes Park and the surrounding areas. Born in 1887 in Corydon, Iowa, Stirling moved with his wife to Estes Park in 1916, where he remained until his death in 1971. His wife Kitty, and their children Hattie and Jack, also lived and worked in the Estes Park area. Stirling became known for his art studio, which was initially inside Rocky Mountain National Park and later in downtown Estes. He was a local celebrity, often entertaining famous visitors to the region. Many notables from the scientific community, Hollywood elite and the music industry visited with Stirling while visiting Estes.

Lone Tree Antiques and Fine art presents a themed exhibition every summer. The 25 original works in this collection have been made available to the public courtesy of Dave and Cheryl Schultz, custodians of the Stirling archive. Sketches, paintings, photographs and biographical material from the collection are available to view and purchase at the gallery, located at 115-117 First Street in Eaton, now through July 31.

Rooftop Rodeo will memorialize former queen Roxann Harris on July 9 Roxann Harris always seemed to be giving back to others. Her friends and comrades at Estes Park Western Heritage Inc. and the Town of Estes Park are going to honor that sentiment and her life during the Rooftop Rodeo, which is set for 7 p.m. Monday, July 8Saturday, July 13, at Granny May Arena in Estes Park inside the Estes Park Fairgrounds. “Her husband, Tom Harris, will be the grand marshal at the Rooftop Rodeo parade on Tuesday, July, 9, and Roxann we will be honoring her at the Queens Luncheon that day,” said Mark Purdy, chairman of Estes Park Western Heritage Inc., a group of volunteers that works with the town of Estes Park to produce the annual rodeo. “Our Tuesday performance will be Roxann Harris Night, and we will be performing a rider-less ceremony with her Rooftop Rodeo saddle, boots and hat.” Harris, the 1982 Rooftop Rodeo queen, died Jan. 7, 2019, after a short illness. She was 53. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, she worked

her way up the corporate ladder in commercial real estate. After meeting her husband, she and Tom moved to Steamboat Springs and purchase a ranch. Five years later, they moved to Douglas County and lived there until her death. Harris first became involved in the royalty program at the National Western Stock Show, which led to her involvement with Miss Rodeo America, where she was elected to the executive board of directors. She coached girls on horsemanship, poise, public speaking, fashion Harris and other skills needed to become rodeo royalty. For the past six years, she was a co-chair of the royalty coordinator program for the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo. “Roxann was one of the best souls I have ever had the chance to meet,” Purdy said. “She has supported many rodeo royalty young ladies over the years over the years, including my own daughter, Kellsie, and our close friend, Alex Hyland Cox. Please join us July 9 for a day of celebrating the life of our wonderful friend, Roxann.”

Flag Day Is June 14th June 14 is the annual observance of Flag Day, to commemorate that day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as a symbol of the new nation the United States of America.

Sunshine And Rosés Summer time is upon us and it's time to relax and enjoy the wonderful refreshing wines available during this season. Plenty of people across the U.S. were celebrating National Rosé Day June 8th and the consensus was that Rosé is the perfect sipping wine to enjoy on a picnic or by poolside with good friends. Soft and vibrant bubbles of Rosé Brut Champagne can fill a glass as brightly as the sun rises in the early mornings of June. So, it's no doubt that Rosé somehow al-

ways manages to bring the absolute best out of the day. As we approach the red, white, and blue colors of the July 4th holiday coming up, Rosé is more like a state of mind, happily spanning the colorspace between red and white. Rosé is not made from specific grapes or within a particular region, although red grapes are primarily used and Provence is where the best Rosés are known to originate. It's pink color comes from spending a short amount of time in contact with the skin of the grapes as if it was just interested in a seductive rendezvous instead of a lifetime partnership. I guess that's why the allure of this soft pink drink is so delightful and sought after for an afternoon delight. If you would like to learn more about Rosé wine and enjoy good company, join us as Vino Giù for our first Tuesday's Tasting event on June 18,

2019 from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. Three Rosé wines along with a pairing of artisan cheese and other goodies will be included in the ticket price of $35. The most favored Rosé chosen by our customers that evening will be given the title of "People's Choice Award" and win a spot on our menu for the Summer. Please call 970-591-2528 to purchase tickets or visit our website Space is limited!

Have you ever thought of what a lonely South Pacific island would have in commom with Estes Park…in fact, with the entire world? Easter Island...forty-five years ago their population was 2,000 with one flight a week and 20,000 visitors a year. Now, there are two/three flights a week and 120,000 visitors each year! Not only are tourists contributing trash but also stress on the environment and fragile ecosystem. There will be a special documentary showing of “Eating Up Easter” seeking sustainability in the remote Pacific, this Friday, June 15th at 8:00 p.m. at Reel Mountain Theater. This documentary was produced and directed by Sergio M. Rapu, Easter Island native and grandson of local Estes Park residents, Wayne and Pat Newsom and nephew of Karen & Scott Thompson and Linda Tauber.

Happy Father's Day! We love you!

On June 10, the Larimer County Commissioners presented representatives of the Village Thrift Shop with a 2019 Environmental Stewardship Award. The award was presented to honor the dedication and accomplishments of the Shop with their on-going program of reselling and recycling of household items. One of the missions of the Village Thrift Shop is to focus on recycling through the sale or proper disposal of unwanted or unneeded items. They work to minimize the amount of waste that goes into the landfill. This is accomplished through recycling efforts that include cardboard, metal, fabric, leather, glass, and plastics. The award follows a review of nomina-

tions by the Environmental and Science Advisory Board. That Board then made recommendations to the Board of Larimer County Commissioners, who then made final selections. The Village Thrift Shop is a 501 (c) 3, operated entirely by volunteers. Proceeds of sales, minus expenses, go to non-profits organizations in the Estes Valley on an annual basis through a grant process. This past year, over $230,000 was given to the non-profits, with a total of over a half million dollars given in the three years of operation. All of this was accomplished through the generosity of the community in donating items, the numerous hours of volunteer labor, and the wonderful support of customers.

A WORTHY FATHER WHO CAN FIND? As you may know there is a chapter in the Bible that begins: ‘A worthy woman who can find?’ and describes many characteristics of womanhood / motherhood that have inspired women through the ages since Solomon painted this portrait. I have known some women that have ‘come close’ in my opinion, having preached funerals for several. However, there is no such ‘portrait’ painted of the ‘worthy father’. With Father’s Day on the horizon, I want to paint one. The Bible does give us characteristics and examples of men who gave us individual qualities of good fathers…so I have something to build on. To me, the father that I am going to describe, fits the pattern given in Scripture, so we can appreciate him and do a little ‘soul-check’ (men) and on our husbands (women). The worthy father in the world today is a father who supports his family from the very beginning. Reba McIntyre sings about her father in her song: “The greatest man I never knew”. So just because the father ‘is there’ doesn’t mean he’s involved in raising those children in early years. The ‘worthy man’ that I know has ‘been there’ for his wife and children at all stages of their lives. He has three children and, despite being an excellent business man and civic leader, is deeply involved in all aspects of his children’s lives, being present at almost all their sports and music activities in Estes Park schools. Not only that, but he committed to serving on the School Board, including as President of that Board. And he wasn’t ‘in absentia’ at crucial times at the school. Once, when two students had threatened to ‘do mayhem’ at the school, this ‘worthy man’ stationed himself at the entrance, making sure they were not allowed in, and order was maintained. This was just one example of the interest he had, not only in his own children, but the children of all the parents in Estes Park. During his tenure on the Board he tried to get to know each child. Fortunately he was married to a woman who had the same determination, taking a job as a substitute bus driver, saying, “I want to know the kids!” This man’s training of his children resulted in including them in the family business so that they are going to be able to pay for their college, when that time comes. And they are not just ‘flunkies’ but already taking over leadership responsibilities. No wonder, then, that his children have been recognized and honored in rodeo and school activities, accomplishing high marks for the Bobcats in several sports and academics. This man’s commitment to his children and others in the community is seen in his leadership in the Boy Scout program that has blessed the lives and strengthened the moral values of dozens of Estes Park boys. No wonder, then, that his son is working toward being an Eagle Scout. Being a spiritual man, this worthy father and scout leader developed a daily Bible devotional enabling families of scouts to be involved in helping ‘their scout’ to achieve a special badge. Other troops have requested to use it in their program. After stepping down from his local position with the scouts he was recently asked to serve on a ‘states-wide’ Board for the Boy Scouts, to meet soon in Texas. You may know by now that this ‘worthy man’ is Cody Walker, presently being targeted for a recall from his position on the Town Board. I’m writing this to encourage every parent…and others whom Cody has blessed by his untiring service on the School and Town Board…to show up at a rally for Cody at Bond Park on June 19th and then, later, cast our vote in his favor. Let’s show our support for this very ‘worthy man’. Bob

"Meet the Artisan" At The Monday Artisans Market "Meet the Artisan" celebrates our wonderful and talented local artisans at the Monday Artisans Market. Join us each Monday, 10:00 - 5:00, June, July and August, at Riverside Plaza, and celebrate our artisans. This week's featured artist is Jennifer Basch. Jennifer loves to create fun and comfortable up-cycled clothing. She is grateful to be doing what she loves and always hopes she leaves others feeling happier. When you feel good in what you wear, it shows! From colorful yoga pants, beautiful ponchos, fun sundresses and unique kid’s clothes-and many items in between-all of From The Heart’s private clothing line are beautifully restored items that were otherwise destined to be discarded. “I feel blessed to breathe new life into a personal wardrobe,” offers Jennifer Basch, the mastermind behind From The Heart clothing line. Jennifer enjoys creating new styles and challenging expectations for up-cycled clothing. She sees the potential of what a meaningful piece of clothing can become with a visionary design and a little nip & tuck or a complete overhaul. She can take an old favorite item from the back of your closet and restyle it into a piece of wearable art or a fresh new look. And though she doesn’t offer alterations or make custom wedding dresses, Jennifer’s eye for color, texture, patterns, and images gives her a creative edge in contemporary clothing. Jennifer is absolutely passionate about sustainability, describing the mindful decision to wear up-cycled fashion as a conscious choice. Each item is lovingly

created exclusively from gently-used textiles. Ideas for using the scraps left over from one item as the accent pieces on another keep Jennifer’s creative juices flowing. She attempts to use 90 – 95% of each garment she recycles. Unique, oneof-a-kind pieces are the result. Jennifer loves hearing a customer exclaim, “This was made just for me!” Choosing to wear environmentally conscious clothing does not have to represent a fashion compromise! All women deserve beautiful clothing. From The Heart celebrates women with lovely, up-cycled clothing for all shapes and sizes, all ages, all complexions, all lifestyles. Jennifer is so grateful to be a part of the Monday Artisan Market. This is her 4th year and she will be there

every Monday in June and July. She also has an Etsy shop Fromtheheartloveland "Meet the Artisan" brings together local and talented artisans to showcase their work. The event is free and open to the public. Every artist has a story. We are all about local art, local artisans, and our unique stories about our art, that makes each and every one of us unique. Bring the entire family to experience Estes Park's weekly Artisan's Market, every Monday from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m., beginning the 1st Monday in June through the last Monday in August, at Riverside Plaza, downtown Estes Park. Stop by, say hi, meet the artisans, see their labor of love, and hear their story. Buy Local. Buy Art.

in honor and celebration of

Father’s Day. For many of us, our fathers are our heroes. To the men who give us everything and ask for nothing in return, thank you for making such a difference in our lives. Happy Father’s Day from your local Dignity Memorial® professionals.

Do Your Part To Keep Bears Wild Residents and vacationers should remove any food attractants from around their home or rental units. Pet food, barbecue grills and bird feeders are also attractants. Refrain from hanging bird feeders, hang flowers, not feeders. After you barbeque, make sure to clean your grill, each and every time. Store all trash in, and properly close bear-resistant garbage containers. Store trash in bear-resistant storage sheds or the garage until trash pickup day. Never pile trash in a trash can or bin that is already overflowing – take trash to a proper receptacle or another location if necessary. Keep campsites and other recreation areas clean. Use bear-resistant coolers and store all food in bear lockers. Never feed wildlife. This attracts preda-

tors to homes and properties and perpetuates nuisance wildlife activity. It is also illegal. Never leave groceries, animal food or anything scented in vehicles. (this includes chapstick, air fresheners, candy and gum wrappers). Bears can open vehicle doors and they may cause damage trying to gain entrance if there are scented items inside. Always keep vehicle windows up and doors locked! Keep barbecue grills clean and stored in a garage or shed when not in use. Keep doors and windows of your home closed and locked when unoccupied. Never intentionally feed bears or other wildlife. It's illegal and dangerous. Bears that get into continual trouble (because of us humans) cannot be relocated, they are killed. Your actions can save a bear’s life.

Stay Bear Aware When Camping And Hiking In Colorado

With warmer weather and melting snowpack, outdoor enthusiasts are enjoying camping and hiking trips in Colorado’s many scenic locations. Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff are frequently asked what someone should do if they encounter a bear while out camping or hiking. Whether you are visiting Colorado for a vacation or are a long-time resident, it’s important to be aware of how to discourage human-bear encounters and how to avoid potential issues before heading out to live life outside. First and foremost, when recreating in bear country you should remember that bears are not naturally aggressive toward humans; in fact, most bears are inherently wary of people. Physical encounters between humans and bears remain exceptionally rare. “Bears are incredibly smart animals, and are more likely than not to just leave the area when they hear humans nearby,” says J Wenum, Area Wildlife Manager for CPW in Gunnison. “However, if a bear is accidentally cornered or surprised, or has lost their normal fear of humans, it may react differently.” Interactions generally occur when bears become too comfortable around humans, often because of an easy or reliable food source, such as improperly stored camping supplies. When bears lose their fear of people, it may lead to them causing damage to property such as cars or RVs, or creating conflict with

Proper food storage and keeping a clean campsite helps keep bears safe! Use bear boxes or bear proof canisters, or cover coolers and tubs in a locked car.

people at campsites or on the trails. Bear sows are also very protective of their young and may react negatively to people if they believe that their cubs may be in danger. “People need to understand how to be bear aware while camping and hiking in order to help prevent any issues,” said Wenum. “Bears are part of the wild places that make Colorado special, so we ask people to take some steps to keep them wild. That means keeping a clean campsite and vehicle, using bear boxes or canisters, respecting trail signage and considering carrying an air horn or bear spray in the backcountry.” CAMPING When camping in bear country, the easiest way to avoid bears is to ensure you have no attractants at your campsite. Whether car camping or hiking into the backcountry, there are actions you can take to minimize your chances

noises such as yelling, banging pots and pans together or using your car horn or an air horn. Be sure to notify the campground host and other campers. HIKING With their tremendous senses of smell and hearing, bears will usually be aware

provided campsite lockers, lock in your trunk or use bear-proof containers stored away from your tent. Stash your trash: If a campground provides bear-proof trash receptacles, use them often to keep your campsite clean. If no trash receptacles are available, double bag your trash and lock it in your vehicle, or use a bear-proof container when backpacking. Keep it clean: Scrape grill grates after use, clean all dishes and utensils, and ensure you have cleaned up any waste near your site. Never bring food or anything that smells like food - which includes toiletries, sunscreen and even clothes you wear when cooking - into your tent. Lock it up: Be sure your car or RV windows are closed and your vehicles are locked whenever you leave your site or before going to sleep at night. Follow signs (and instincts): Whether printed signs or natural signs such as tracks or scat, if you have evidence that a bear has been in the area recently, leave and choose another campsite. If a bear is seen in your camp, try your best to haze it away with loud

of your presence well before you are aware of theirs. Their natural instinct will be to leave before you realize they are in the area. However, understanding bear behaviors and being aware of your surroundings will help you avoid unwanted encounters on the trails. Hike with friends: Conversation and extra noise will alert bears to your presence and make them more likely to retreat. If your group includes furry friends, keep dogs leashed at all times. Not only will an unleashed dog be more likely to be injured, the instinct to return to its owner may bring an aggravated bear right back to you. Stay alert at all times: Leave your headphones back at your campsite, be extra cautious at dawn and dusk, and pay closer attention to visuals when hiking in an area with noise from running water or heavy winds. NEVER feed a bear: Never approach a bear of any size for any reason, especially to feed it. Double bag food and pack out all food waste to avoid encouraging bears to see trails as a food source. Do not think “natural” waste like apple cores or banana peels are okay to leave behind - they are certainly not natural treats for bears.

Friday, June 14, 2019 « 29

Respect forage areas: If your usual trail runs through berry patches, oak brush or other known food sources, be extra vigilant. Make extra noise by periodically clapping or calling out to alert bears to your presence. If you’ve done everything above and still manage to surprise a bear on the trail? Stay calm, stand still and speak to it in a firm tone of voice. The bear will most likely identify you and leave. Never run from a bear! If the bear does not leave, slowly wave your arms over your head trying to make yourself look big and continue speaking to encourage the bear’s exit. If the bear huffs, stomps or pops its jaws, that is a

sign that it needs space. Continue facing the bear, slowly back away and keep moving away slowly until the bear is out of sight. If the bear approaches before you have a chance to try to force its exit, stand your ground. Yell or throw smaller rocks in the direction of the bear. If the bear gets within 40 feet, utilize bear spray. If a bear attacks, do not play dead - fight back with anything available, including trekking poles, small knives, or even your bare hands. If you’re heading out to enjoy the Colorado outdoors, remember that most human-bear interactions are relatively benign; bear sightings and watching normal bear behaviors from a safe distance are an incredible sight for most outdoor enthusiasts. Staying bear aware on the trails or at your campsite, and keeping respectful distances for photos and viewing, keeps these interactions safe for humans and bears alike. For more information on camping and hiking in bear country, visit

Stay bear aware on the trails and at your campsite this summer to help keep wildlife wild.

Keeping pets leashed, keeping campsites clean and locking all vehicle doors and windows are easy ways to minimize potential interactions with bears and help Colorado Parks and Wildlife keep wildlife wild.

Baby Elk

Elk calves and their mamas are being seen all around town and in RMNP. While they are fun to see, be aware that mother elk are very protective. Please make sure to watch from a distance and never get between a baby and its mother. It’s our responsibility to not get too close to the baby or the mother during calving season. Adult elk, both male and female, are very large and can be dangerous, particularly if they think a person is threatening their territory or offspring. Photo by Jim Ward

Bigfoot Sighting On Storm Mountain

Leah and Mike Marshall are bigfoot researchers here in Estes Park who have been featured on the “Finding Bigfoot” show on Animal Planet after a sasquatch sighting they experienced in Bailey, CO. Leah was also a speaker at the inaugural Estes Park Bigfoot Festival this past April. Now, the Marshall’s are anxious tell us of a bigfoot sighting they had two weeks ago, in our area. The couple was checking on a friend’s home on May 25th up on Storm Mountain, near Drake. They were out in the yard when Leah heard what she thought were cries from a child in the surrounding woods. The home backs up against national forest property and Leah said, “I could hear what I thought was a little kid crying out, I was afraid that maybe a child had become lost up there, in the thick woods, maybe off the trail. Leah and Mike have often hiked on the trails around the home and know the area quite well. Leah continued, “I followed the sound of the cries up a ravine. When I got to the top of a steep hill, there was a clearing and I wondered if there was a cave up

there. All of a sudden I heard twigs snapping and heard the cries again. I really felt like I was being watched!” Leah got out her phone and took a couple of photos of the cave, when all of a sudden, she felt disoriented. Leah thinks she experienced a phenomena called infrasound. Bigfoot experts often speak about infrasound, it is a low-frequency sound wave with frequencies below the lower limit of human audibility. Many who believe they have encountered a sasquatch in close proximity have reported feeling inexplicably nauseous, confused, disoriented, dizzy, light-headed, and even sometimes, physically unable to move. According to those who have experienced it, infrasound symptoms happen before they have even seen a creature, or have any awareness that it’s in their vicinity. Leah says this is often how people get lost in the woods, the infrasound can provoke unpleasant physical and mind-numbing sensations. Immediately after the infrasound experience, Leah noticed that her phone had gone dead. She said, “I had 76% power on my phone yet all of a sudden, it was completely drained, just dead!” Leah attributes the loss of power to her phone from the infrasound. She said her phone has still been “acting up” since then. Leah said, “I’ve been ‘zapped’ with infrasound before. I was at a Bigfoot Research Organization (BFRO) event near Steamboat Springs at a known bigfoot hotspot. Three of the five of us in our group got zapped by infrasound and two in our group got sick. We all heard a very high pitched sound, that was hurting our ears and it took three days for us to get over it.” Was there a bigfoot nearby on Storm Mountain producing infrasonic waves to try to scare her away? We will never know for sure. But Leah says with certainty that something out there made her feel very disoriented and strange. Mike, realizing Leah had been gone for a long time and had lost

her way, clacked rocks together so Leah could find her way back. She followed the sound of the rocks and made it back safely to Mike and the house. Immediately Leah and Mike looked at the photos she had Leah and Mike taken and they were amazed at what they saw! Leah thinks she saw an Colorado BFRO, Dennis Pfohl, who has adult and a young squatch. She believes since filed a report and will conduct an the adult is about eight or nine feet tall. official investigation. Leah and Mike will update us after the investigation. “I think it was mom and a young one, Take a look at the photos and see what and possibly several more. They live in you see. Can you make out one face, or family groups and I believe I found a more? Do you believe? Stay tuned for an bigfoot family, up near the cave!” update after the investigation.

Loveland Sculpture In The Park Show & Sale The Loveland High Plains Arts Council is proud to present the 36th Annual Sculpture in the Park Show and Sale. In the Summer of 1984, 50 artists arrived at Benson Park with the high hopes of selling their sculpture at the inaugural Sculpture in the Park show and sale. Two thousand visitors came to view their work and purchased over $50,000 worth of sculpture. With the proceeds from that first show, the Loveland High Plains Arts Council purchased two sculptures, one by George Walbye and another by Dan Ostermiller, for permanent placement in Benson Park. And, with that, the sculpture garden became a reality. Over the past 36 years, 1,369 different artists have come to Loveland to display their work at the Sculpture in the Park show and sale. With the addition of new participating artists each year, the show has grown from a primarily representational western bronze exhibit into a more diversified display of sculpture created in a variety of styles and mediums. This August, 160 international juried artists will offer over 2,000 pieces of sculpture for visitors to the show to view and purchase. As the Sculpture in the Park show has continued to grow and flourish, so has Benson Sculpture Garden. With the proceeds generated from each annual show, over the past 35 years, the Love-

Land of Legend and Allure: Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula “Our Wonderful World” continues its 13th season of armchair travel-adventures this Tuesday, June 18 with “Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula,” presented by John Holt. The free program takes place at 7 p.m. at this year’s new location: the lower level of the Estes Valley Community Center at 660 Community Drive.

The series is co-sponsored by the Community Center and the Estes Valley Library. Many travelers consider the Yucatán Peninsula to be one of the globe’s most alluring destinations, spanning from its white-sand beaches to the archaeological wonders of its Mayan cities. The landscape is dominated by limestone bedrock, which created the caves and sinkholes used by the Mayans to access

groundwater. The peninsula is also covered with many tropical rainforests and jungles. In the cities can be found colorful colonial homes and cobbled streets. In the more remote villages, indigenous Maya have preserved their culture and customs, while also still speaking their Maya languages. Pelicans are among the many birds found in the Yucatàn, and divers exploring the Caribbean coast can find mollusks, turtles, and toadfish, as well as tube sponges among the massive coral gardens. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at so the program team can save everyone a seat.

Estate Plans Can Help You Answer Questions About The Future The word “estate” conjures images of great wealth, which may be one of the reasons so many people don’t develop estate plans – after all, they’re not rich, so why make the effort? In reality, though, if you have a family, you can probably benefit from estate planning, whatever your asset level. And you may well find that a comprehensive estate plan can help you answer some questions you may find unsettling – or even worrisome. Here are a few of these questions: • What will happen to my children? With luck, you (and your co-parent, if you have one) will be alive and well at least until your children reach the age of majority (either 18 or 21, depending on where you live). Nonetheless, you don’t want to take any chances, so, as part of your estate plans, you may want to name a guardian to take care of your children if you are not around. You also might want to name a conservator – sometimes called a “guardian of the estate” – to manage any assets your minor children might inherit. • Will there be a fight over my assets? Without a solid estate plan in place, your assets could be subject to the time-consuming, expensive – and very public – probate process. During probate, your relatives and creditors can gain access to your records, and possibly even challenge your will. But with proper planning, you can maintain your privacy. As one possible element of an estate plan, a living trust allows your property to avoid probate and pass quickly to the beneficiaries you’ve named. • Who will oversee my finances and my living situation if I become incapacitated? You can build various forms of protection into your estate planning, such as a durable power of attorney,

which allows you to designate someone to manage your financial affairs if you become physically or mentally incapacitated. You could also create a medical power of attorney, which allows someone to handle health care decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so yourself. • Will I shortchange my family if I leave significant assets to charities? Unless you have unlimited resources, you’ll have to make some choices about charitable gifts and money for your family. But as part of your estate plans, you do have some appealing options. For example, you could establish a charitable lead trust, which provides financial support to your chosen charities for a period of time, with the remaining assets eventually going to your family members. A charitable remainder trust, by contrast, can provide a stream of income for your family members for the term of the trust, before the remaining assets are transferred to one or more charitable organizations. As you can see, careful estate planning can help you answer many of the questions that may be worrying you. Be aware, though, that certain aspects of estate planning, especially those related to living trusts and charitable trusts, can be complex, so you should consult your estate-planning attorney or qualified tax advisor about your situation. But once you’ve got your plans in place, you should be able to face the future with greater clarity and confidence. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor. Edward Jones, its employees and financial advisors are not estate planners and cannot provide tax or legal advice.

Big Thompson River A poem by: Kyle McClure

As winter comes to an end the cold goes away and spring comes back to life The snow that blankets the mountains melts away and beautiful flowers begin to grow

The people of the mountain sit on their porches to hear the sound the Big Thompson makes As it torrents down the mountain carving the canyon and giving life to the valley below

The water from this snow gathers to make its yearly journey as the river once again becomes alive It rushes around bends and over big boulders gathering speed as it begins to flow.

The banks of the river can barely contain it as it rushes on by in its annual parade And as it finishes its descent down the mountain it calms and more peacefully the Thompson flows

Fishermen try their hand casting their lines and working at catching big trout Hikers walk the paths beside it while basking in its power and glory

The people give thanks for the life that it brings as it winds for miles and miles Trees and grass each growing stronger because from its water they will drink

Adrenaline rushes like rapids as kayakers splash and paddle trying to stay upright At the end of the day when they return home adventure will be all their stories

The beauty that is made alive will cause all the people to look with awe and smile Big Thompson is a way of life here for on its waters happiness it will bring.

University Of Texas Cyclists Stopping In Estes Park On 4,000 Mile Ride Twenty-nine students from the University of Texas will arrive in Estes Park on Wednesday, June 19 by bicycle from Denver. And the next morning, they will head on to Steamboat Springs. But that is just part of their journey – the students are participating in the Texas 4000, a ride from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska, to raise money and awareness for cancer. It is the longest annual charity bike ride in the world. After Wednesday's ride (about 100 miles, climbing 4,300 feet) the students will be hosted in comfort thanks to the Estes Park YMCA of the Rockies. Volun-

teers will greet them with dinner from Antonio's Real New York Pizza. They'll get to hear the stories of why teenagers would tackle such a daunting journey, how each of them embodies the organization's mission to share hope, knowledge, and charity in the fight against cancer. Michelle Chen, a neuroscience major, rides for her grandfather, her grandmother, her aunt, and a good friend. Of the four, only one has survived cancer. The Rockies route is one of three blazed by the college students: other groups are making the 70 day ride up the west coast, or through the Midwest.

Young Artists And Scholars Group Plein Air Painting Session

Outdoor educator, Michael Beckstrom, will be offering a plein air painting session-45 minutes of fun at the greenhouse on Tuesday, June 18th at 2 p.m. Michael Beckstrom has been painting for 20 plus years and has an undergrad in art from Columbia College of Missouri. This is the second class for the summer nature series as part of the Young Artists and Scholars overall mission to empower our youth and hone their leadership skills. Michael’s goal is to bring all people closer to the earth. He hopes to see you all there. The class is being offered free through the Young Artists and Scholars Group which is located at the Cave Cat Gardens Greenhouse in Lower Stanley Village just behind Starbucks. For more information call 970-586-8707.

Over the past fifteen years, more than 750 UT students have made the trek from Austin to Anchorage, collectively raising more than $8.4 million. For example, while in Denver, the 2019 Rockies team will present their annual donation to Brent's Place, an Aurora long-term "home away from home" for children and families with cancer. Texas 4000 empowers each student to raise $4,500, ride 2,000 training miles with his/her team, volunteer more than 50 hours in the community, and play an active role in planning every aspect of the ride to Alaska. The riders arrange all accommodations in advance during the

training year. They rely on the generosity of host families, churches, and schools for shelter and are prepared to camp when housing is not available. Riders provide their own “SAG” support, rotating through the duties of driving the support vehicles, setting up rest stops, securing food donations, and preparing meals that are not provided. Thursday morning, the 29 cyclists will mount their saddles for that day's ride, over 100 miles to Steamboat Springs. It will be Day 20 on the bike, with 50 more to go, until they pedal into Anchorage on August 9.

The Baldpate Inn Presents Its 2019 Summer Enchanted Evenings On Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at 7 p.m., The Baldpate Inn is pleased to welcome Adam Thomas as the second in their series of speakers for their Summer Enchanted Evenings. Adam will be speaking about Western Railroads, Art, and Representation. Adam Thomas is an Assistant Teaching Professor at Colorado State University and Estes park local. He studied journalism at Medill School, Northwestern University before going on to John Hopkins University where he got both his M.A. and Ph.D. in History. To round out this education he further specialized his M.A. into Public History and Architectural History at CSU. This background led into his founding position at Historitecture a Denver-based consulting firm focused on architectural history, public history, and cultural resources. Dr. Thomas focuses on the Colorado area in his research, specifically looking at the peoples who lived in and settled

the area, as well as the myriad tales kept therein. His personal love of trains has spawned an interest in their part settling both Colorado and the West, as well as the legacies they have left on this part of the nation. Legacies seen through the visible network of railways and towns they cross, as well as the families and businesses that made use of this network. The Summer Enchanted Evenings at the Baldpate Inn, on Highway 7, are held every Wednesday throughout the summer beginning at 7 p.m. There is no charge, and refreshments are provided in the Key Room. The Baldpate Inn would love for you to be able to join them for the talk.

Theater For The Thirsty At YMCA Of The Rockies On Sunday, June 16, Theater for the Thirsty will be the guest performers for the 10:00 a.m. worship in Hyde Chapel. Their performance, on Sunday evening, begins at 7:00 p.m. in Hyde Chapel. This performance is free and open to the public.

Theater for the Thirsty is a two-person theater company specializing in entertaining, music-infused, funny, thoughtprovoking, redemptive, soul stirring and imaginative theater. They have been creating and performing original works professionally for over fifteen years. Jeremiah and Vanessa Gamble have been involved in professional theater in the Twin Cities, both on camera and on stage, for over twelve years. Their passion is creating and performing original works together through their theater company, Theater for the Thirsty. They portray over 100 different characters in their ten original shows–ranging from tone-deaf angels to cud-chewing cows. Every Christmas they both perform with the whole family. They graduated from Bethel University with degrees in theater and music. They make their home in Saint Paul, MN with their extremely cute kids Phoenicia, Eden and Obadiah.

Theater for the Thirsty creates and performs redemptive theater that is entertaining and imaginative. Their recipe is simple: incorporate well-crafted stories, a heavy dose of quality comedy, dynamic music, memorable characters,

simple props, and NO MSG. Jeremiah and Vanessa believe that people are hungry and thirsty for more than what much of this life offers. So, they hope to give ‘em something that will refresh their spirits, challenge their assumptions, entertain their socks off and inject some hope into their lives. During the service on Sunday morning, they will perform “The Psalm King” and the Sunday evening performance will feature “How the Groo Grew.” To learn more about Theater for the Thirsty and their ministry, visit This Sunday service and concert are a part of the Chapel Ministry’s 2019 Summer Worship Fest program.

Concert-goers have enthusiastically attended the energetic and melodic performances of this unique, American heritage music in years past, and the Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies is excited to bring the smooth, brass sound back to Estes next week. Brass bands date back to the early 19th century and the Industrial Revolution. Rocky Mountain Brassworks began in 1978, carrying on the tradition of the original bands, and has been performing

all around the state ever since. Conductor Doug Harris was a founding member of the group in 1978 as a performer in the trombone section, and is in his sixth season as conductor. This staple of Colorado music has performed for such audiences as British Lords and Princesses, the Pope, The Colorado Rockies, the Colorado Music Educators Convention, as well as countless performances for music education in the state. When it comes to a brass band, it just doesn’t get any better than this group. Admission is free! Donations are accepted for the Fine Arts Guild scholarship fund for two graduating seniors who plan to major in the arts. Lawn chairs/blankets are encouraged.

Summer travel. We look forward to it with months of anticipation. And it builds memories that inspire us all yearlong. Ready to explore destinations? The library is an excellent place to do just that. Whether it’s near or far, you can lose yourself in the rows upon rows of travel guides. Names like DK Eyewitness, Fodor’s, Frommer’s, and Lonely Planet have exceptional reputations as quality go-to sources to help you navigate choices in lodging, dining, and those ohso-many activities. Summer travel can also mean backpacking in sunshine and camping under the stars. We’ve got camping and wilderness guides to prepare you for days wellspent in your favorite national parks—or places you’re visiting for the first time. Sure—browsing the Internet can be effective. But by itself, the Internet can also be overwhelming—and sometimes misleading. Travel guides help focus your search—and there’s always a thrill to searching those big fold-out maps that many guidebooks contain. When your destination is planned and the car is packed, the library’s wide selection of audiobooks can make your road trips all the more enjoyable. How about listening to a novel along your next interstate drive? Or a kids’ book for the family to hear aloud? Getting there will be as much fun as being there. Interspersed within all those traditional CD-audiobooks are digital audiobooks called Playaways. These are audiobooks too, but with an entire book contained

on a portable handheld MP3 player. Playways can be enjoyed through your car stereo with a simple adaptor. They’re also light enough to take with you, complete with earbuds, on your walking tour or faraway hike. And where you travel, the library travels with you. Thanks to Digital Collections. That’s especially amazing when you consider these collections contain over 600,000 items: digital books, audiobooks, movies, music, TV shows, and comic books. All that—and it won’t weigh down your pack or force you to check an extra bag at the airport. Digital collections are 24/7 and accessible from anywhere with your library card. Now through August 3, you can log your reading minutes online—even while on vacation. There are great prizes for all ages, and you’ll help us reach the community goal of 238,900 total minutes. What if you simply can’t get away this summer? We’ve still got you covered. You can travel in comfort each week— armchair style—through this summer’s Our Wonderful World line-up. Next destination: Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula on Tuesday, June 18 at 7 p.m.—held in the lower level of the Estes Valley Community Center. Register at so we can save you a seat! Summer travel is joyous. But it’s also nice to come home—especially when that home is the Estes Valley. And with a trip to the library, you can start dreaming again through all those books in the travel section.

Urges A “No” Vote On Recall Ballot Dear Estes Park, It warms our hearts to see so many upstanding Estes Park citizen stand up to say “No” to the ridiculous recall of Trustee Cody Walker. The supportive True Grit No Recall signs in yards, cars, and buttons on jackets is a positive message. What we really appreciate are the stories people are sharing on Facebook, and in private messages, about the amazing things Cody Walker has done for them personally, their kids, and for the town. After all the negativity and division by a few angry, loud people, it’s nice to see a

positive message come from members of our community. If you have True Grit, attend the nonpartisan, family friendly rally from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19th in Bond Park. A diverse group have come together to put on this rally and build up our community, instead of tearing it apart. Follow the True Grit No Recall Keep Walker Facebook page, but most importantly, just say “NO” on your recall ballot. Thanks, Michelle & George Hurni

Yoga Instructor Considered A Treasure In Allenspark

Heartfelt Thanks To EPH Personnel To The Editor: I need to give thanks and praise to four specific individuals who gave me the best medical care I have ever received – anywhere - at the Estes Park Health Center starting last Friday in the middle of the night and going well into morning. I was not even through the door before Melissa came out of the front office and brought me to the nurse’s station. I did not have to sit down and immediately do paperwork that could have very potentially slowed my possibility of recovery. It was great and the appropriate triage decision. Melissa described my issue (a sudden onset of massively swollen upper lip and tongue) to Bretlynn. This wonderful nurse sprung right into action notifying the on-call physician Dr. Meyer. Within seconds I was in a bed and be-

ing well looked after. Dr. Meyer came in a flash and diagnosed my problem as he walked into the room. I was taking a drug to help control high blood pressure (normally a very good drug it should be noted) but that in a statistically small subset of patients may cause Angioedema of varying length and degree. Dr. Meyer’s immediate grasp of the situation was most impressive. Melody arrived to assist and reassure me that all would be well. I stayed for a number of hours for observation and was continually buoyed, checked upon and felt truly cared for by all these four staff members throughout my entire experience. They are the gold standard for a great ER team. I whole heatedly thank each and every one of them. Adam Boehler

Dances of Universal Peace This Saturday, June 15th This Saturday, June 15th is the Dances of Universal Peace at 2 p.m. at the Estes Park Yoga Center. Deep appreciation goes out to those who came to celebrate last month and also got a taste of the Dances at the “Sweet Peace Jam.” The space reverberated with the warmth and connections generated there. The sweetness of finding peace and connection in the midst of the busyness of Elkhorn Ave. can not be overlooked.

One finds the songs and movements reflecting the values from other cultures are easily learned and lead to a sense of wellness and belonging. The dances are offered by donation; No one is denied joining in these interfaith practices with the repetition of sacred phrases and heartfelt movements. You may want to bring water to revive you after the exuberant dances; also, refrain from wearing fragrances, as some people have sensitivities. After the dances, you are invited to come join us for dinner. Call Linda Bensey at 970-214-7719 for additional information.

Ask any yoga practitioner in the Peak to Peak area about PachaMama Yoga instructor Peggy Donahue, and their face lights up. “She is the yoga instructor I was always looking for but could never quite find— and I’m from Austin where you can throw a rock anywhere and hit a yoga studio!” said Allenspark resident Jasmine Holan. “I feel so lucky to have her right here in Allenspark. Plus, she’s awesome an exudes joy!” For the past 11 years Donahue has offered yoga classes at The Old Gallery in Allenspark. “The Old Gallery was a perfect location and size for yoga classes, being in the town proper and able to accommodate classes of any size,” she said.

Her positivism and joy is infectious.” Part-time resident Holly Bea-Weaver added, “She’s like a little sprite—she’s tiny but her joy is enormous.

Jugglers Find Camaraderie At The Old Gallery In Allenspark What happens when you buy some cheap juggling balls as a stocking stuffer for your 14-year-old daughter? If you’re Mike Brown of Allenspark, it turns into a hobby you’re passionate about! “When I gave the juggling balls and instruction book to my daughter Gretchen on Christmas morning, she was underwhelmed. On the other hand, I’ve been hooked on juggling ever since,” he said. Brown started a free juggling group at The Old Gallery in Allenspark during the summer of 2015. He tried to recruit beginners and experienced jugglers and

Cat Osban, co-owner of the Sunshine Mountain Lodge in Allenspark, learned juggling basics years ago. “It’s been fun to pick it up again,” she said. “Mike individualizes instruction based on individual skill level. Sometimes we’re working on the same skill and sometimes everyone works on their own thing. It’s fun, it’s easy and it’s a chance to get away from everyday life for a couple of hours a month and just play.” the Old Gallery is always interested in new class ideas that support our mission statement of wellness and community,”

the group finally gelled in 2018. It now meets twice monthly at The Old Gallery, a nonprofit center for the arts, community and visitors. The sessions are free and open to all. “We have about seven regulars—men, women and kids,” he said. The jugglers vary in skill levels and age. Anyone interested in learning how to juggle is welcome to join the fun every other Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. “It’s not a competitive activity. It’s very supportive, with people sharing tips and techniques,” he said. Equipment available includes balls, clubs, diabolos and devil sticks. “Sometimes there are knives, torches, poi, shaker cups and cigar boxes,” he added. Brown can perform about 100 tricks using just three balls. “You start juggling with three balls and then learn to juggle four and possibly five balls,” he said. “Basic juggling skills are much easier to learn than it appears. The trick is to practice enough time to get it into muscle memory.”

said The Old Gallery Events and Operations Manager Peggy Mauerman. “That’s one of the great things about our community center. People bring in their favorite bands to perform. We have a book club, yoga classes, art classes, lectures and more.” Upcoming summer premier events at The Old Gallery include Red White & Bluegrass on Sunday, June 30, Hogabluesa Blues, BBQ & Brews on Saturday, July 27 and Run Like The Wind 5K & Dog Jog on Saturday, August 24. For a complete list of classes, concerts, Rocky Mountain 101 speakers and activities, visit Tickets for premier events are available for purchase at The Juggling Club meets the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays of every month at The Old Gallery, from 6:30- 8:30 p.m. The next sessions will be on Wednesdays, May 29, June 5, and June 19.

Sandra Lynn Osterman Sandra Lynn Osterman, 70, passed away June 8th, 2019, in Estes Park, Colorado. Sandy was born February 20th, 1949, in Michigan City, Indiana, to Raymond Charles and Thelma Jane White. During her youth she was active in 4 H clubs, showing her horse, Midnight, at the Michigan State Fair. She was involved in Girl Scouts for many years and eventually volunteered to teach horsemanship at the Girl Scout National Campground in Colorado. Sandy graduated from Edwardsburg, Michigan high school in 1967 and from Western Michigan University with a masters in Special Education. She taught special needs children in Bangor, Michigan for many years. In 1976 she married Manly “ Lee� Osterman in Bangor. Lee and Sandy moved to Colorado 1981 where they started a business in antiques and making wooden collectibles. Their business, NOT ALWAYS THE SAME, thrived as they traveled to many states and art fairs. In 2003 they moved to Estes Park to more fully enjoy the great outdoors. Unfortunately, just five years later, Lee passed away on September 8, 2008. Sandy was an accomplished photographer of her beloved Colorado Rocky Mountains and it’s wildlife. Those photos were often framed and given as gifts to family and friends. She was also an avid hiker and loved the outdoors.

This way of life led her to become a volunteer in many capacities for Rocky Mountain National Park. She led many tourist group explorations and was known for her vast knowledge of the Rockies. Her favorite places to serve were at the Alpine visitor center at nearly 12,000 feet, and she loved patrolling the tundra. Sandy was also an activist in the Estes Park community where she served on various committees, being recognized as a valuable volunteer. She loved trains and railroads and studied the history of railroading and could often be found operating miniature trains with her friends. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Estes Park. She developed innumerable friendships within the Church and the overall Estes community. She is survived by her brother, Raymond Gene White (and sister-inlaw, Nourma Jean) of Edwardsburg, Michigan, and her sister, Margery Dutton, of Oklahoma, along with many nieces and nephews. A memorial service for Sandy will take place at the Estes Valley Community Center at 12 noon, June 14th after which her ashes will be buried along side her husband, Lee’s burial site at Estes Park Cemetery.
