2018 ON GOING SUCCESS In 1985, the Summer of Jazz was launched as a way to bring together community and celebrate the sounds of Jazz. Over the years, the focus has expanded to include many forms of music, but the values of bringing people together, enjoying picnics, summer mountain evenings and great music continues to be a strong Glenwood Springs tradition. Now in our 8th Season, the Glenwood Springs Summer of Music continues to meet with

gem a thousand times over, right? It’s a common refrain uttered on valley patios, picnic blankets, and river rafts throughout the season, but its ubiquity doesn’t make it any less true. For the many—many—transplants laying down roots here, the saying frames a Western Slope summer as both an immense joy and an utterly enchanting surprise worthy of tethering us to this land forever. That a Colorado summer could rival or surpass the brilliance of winter may have left many of us in shock. As John Denver sang about that transformative mountain summer of his 27th year, it was like “coming home to a place he’d never been before.” (I can see the born-and-breds rolling their eyes now, for this summer stuff is something they’ve known all along. Bear with me, friends!) July is an exceptional month in the valley, giving us peak sweetness in an already

Unfortunately, it’s also the most underdiagnosed and ineffectively treated problem. With expert care, it’s completely fixable. If you have pain or limited flexibility, you likely have adhesion. Where other treatments fail, we excel. If your current treatment isn’t working, we can help.

Breathing Archery EMPOWERING WOUNDED VETERANS THROUGH BOWS, ARROWS, AND BREATHWORK ARTICLE EMILY HIGHTOWER | PHOTOGRAPHY ESTATEPHOTOVIDEO.COM KIT MITCHELL HE HADN’T HELD A BOW BEFORE, BUT HE’S NOT NEW TO WEAPONS. He aims through the scope with expert calm, arms taut with cool anticipation. Thunk. The arrow hits the target cleanly. His satisfaction is visible; what we can’t see, though, is his traumatic brain injury from a combat blast in Afghanistan which left him with anxiety, depression, and issues with memory, balance, and sleep. Before the next shot he pulls deep nasal breaths that move his belly. He stills the breath when it’s time to release the arrow. He’s learning breath progressions that help him hit the mark in archery, but the real aim of this retreat is to give him breath for healing at home. Since 2009 I’ve taught wellness for Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO). CAMO offers adaptive sports camps to the ever-growing numbers of wounded veterans. We give holistic training in four areas: sleep, functional movement, nutrition, and breathwork. I use these methods to effectively self-regulate and heal from my own traumatic past. Breathing is the easiest to learn and brings the quickest results. Breath creates conditions for healing by oxygenating cells, increasing CO2 tolerance, regulating reactivity, and creating relaxed presence. In 2017 a retired veteran I worked with through CAMO inquired how breath could help with archery performance. I became his breath coach, and he, a Level 3 Archery coach, taught me to shoot. Breathwork gave him tangible relief from combat-related symptoms.

presence; the metric is in the target, which reflects how centered (or not) the breath was for the shot. It’s adaptive and brings people outdoors for time spent in peace and power. Plus, it’s addictive. After last summer, I bought a bow and have shot hundreds of arrows to put my own breath to the test. We are donating a day to breathe archery with civilians where all proceeds support CAMO. On Friday July 13, join us for a retreat day of yoga, breathwork, and archery for all levels held at CAMO’s Whispering Winds Ranch near Reudi Reservoir. The suggested donation is $500 for expert archery and applied breathwork training you’ll use for life. Emily Hightower has been an adventure and wellness guide for over 20 years.

It is one of the many projects undertaken by New Castle Trails (NCT). Formed in 2015 by enthusiastic local mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners, the goal of the group, as stated by chairman Adam Cornely, is “to see more trail opportunities, as well as more of a recreational, community-based culture in New Castle.” NCT approached former professional mountain bike racer Brian Buell about working with volunteers to build a unique descending flow trail designed specifically Photo: Charles Engelbert

with kids in mind. The result? Two trails: “Green” and “Blue," which are slated for completion by the end of July, and will start at the West Colorow trailhead. Follow NCT on Facebook to stay updated.

two. L E M O N A D E D AY On July 14, if you’re thirsty for the classic summertime drink, you won’t have to look far! Lemonade Day, sponsored by YouthEntity of Carbondale, encourages budding entrepreneurs in grades K-12 to  follow a step-by-step curriculum designed to build  business skill savvy in the American kids’ pastime of running lemonade stands. Concentrated mainly in Basalt, and in partnership with the Art Base, the event helps kids not only build their own stands, but also learn about investing, saving, and donating money. Watch for them across the valley—and buy a glass to support future Roaring Fork Valley business owners. To register or download the curriculum, visit LemonadeDay.org  or contact Naomi Peters at Naomi@YouthEntity.org.

Gelato! For a delicious snack this summer, be sure to stop by the Carbondale Creamery and Cafe. Owned since November 2016 by longtime friends and Carbondale locals, Kyle Eberhardt and Anders Hansen, it’s not only a great place for a tasty frozen treat, but also well-known for its homemade pastries. With the men’s friendship as a foundation of trust, families Eberhardt and Hansen have pooled their combined skills in finance, restaurant management, and agricultural knowledge to build a solid business. Beginning at 3 a.m. every morning, one of them is starting the process of making fresh, homemade food. Located on Highway 133 just south of the roundabout between Phillips 66 and Beijin Tokyo, it’s a perfect bike ride destination to enjoy with your minions.

SNOWMASS RODEO 45TH ANNIVERSARY

“Some rodeos, we’ll have 300 kids out there for the

calf scramble. When those calves get loose, they’ll all be running in opposite directions!” According to Snowmass Rodeo president Jim Snyder, this kids’ event is only one of  the many  traditions you'll  find every Wednesday night this summer through August 22. With the grounds opening at 5 p.m., families can enjoy authentic western BBQ, try riding a mechanical bull, or register kids for the calf scramble or mutton bustin’. Grand entry starts at 7 p.m. and includes the Lord’s Prayer, as well as a tribute to the American flag. Then, cowboys and cowgirls hold onto their hats as they ride, rope, and race.  Afterward,  Twirp Anderson, one of the founders and a longtime rodeo announcer, hosts  western tunes around the campfire. For more information on the rodeo’s 45th anniversary season, visit SnowmassRodeo.org.

IN THE HEIGHTS CUSTOM COLORADO CHARM AND THE BEST VIEWS IN THE VALLEY

ARTICLE BRIDGET GREY | PHOTOGRAPHY ESTATEPHOTOVIDEO.COM - KIT MITCHELL

LOCALS KNOW THAT THERE’S A LITTLE EXTRA MAGIC IN MISSOURI HEIGHTS. Above the Roaring Fork Valley this expanse of rolling hills and ranchland not only provides awe-inspiring views of local peaks, but also an ageless tranquility difficult to find elsewhere in the region. Deer dart among the sagebrush, songbirds call, and sunset makes a particularly dazzling sight here. To call it home seems tempting, doesn’t it? Along Buck Point Road on the Carbondale side of Missouri Heights, this custom log home sits ready to be filled with a family that appreciates its charms. Built-in, natural artwork in the form of framed Sopris, Capitol, Daly, and Sunlight views make the interiors shine. Four bedrooms and baths, vaulted ceilings, a spacious deck, an oversized three-car garage, and a large unfinished walk-out basement all brim with possibility. Meticulously tended by a single owner, this home is now on the market for the first time.

Compassionate Care A GLENWOOD SPRINGS FAMILY’S EXPERIENCE AT PEREGRINE SENIOR LIVING ARTICLE BRIDGET GREY | PHOTOGRAPHY ESTATEPHOTOVIDEO.COM - MICHAEL HEFFERON

Roaring Fork Lifestyle | July 2018


JIM HICKSON LOVED TO STAY BUSY. He had called the Roaring Fork Valley home since moving here from Virginia with his wife Mildred in 2002, after almost four decades working as a chemical engineer with DuPont. Jim was intent on enjoying all that the mountains have to offer, and he never allowed retirement to force him to sit still. “He loved hunting and fishing, and he flew model airplanes,” Jim’s daughter, Ellen Brooks, says. “He was an outdoorsman, a tinkerer— he built things and always had ideas. It was his engineer’s mind.” Jim stayed sharp by pursuing his many interests well into his golden years, so when he began experiencing speech difficulties, his family knew something wasn’t right. “He started losing his ability to speak well,” Ellen remembers. “Initially we thought it was due to a stroke, but he then also began having trouble walking. As things progressed, a neurologist determined that he had not suffered a stroke but in fact had a disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy.” Being diagnosed with this rare brain disorder meant that Jim’s problems with speech, balance, and movement would worsen over time. As his family considered the level of care that he would soon need, Ellen was concerned about finding a local facility where her father could receive the medical attention he required in a high-quality, homelike location. PEREGRINE SENIOR LIVING

“We had intended for him to stay at home, but he really needed

weren’t sure if he would be a good candidate for a place like Peregrine.

We went to them to discuss, and they determined that he actually was.”

@PeregrineGlenwoodSprings on Facebook

Ellen, a doctor, says that first and foremost her family chose Peregrine because its full-time nurses and aides could provide the high level of personal care and medical monitoring Jim needed. Secondly, the brandnew facility on the river at the 27th Street roundabout in Glenwood CONTINUED >

Springs offered a comfortable environment where Jim’s entire family could be a part of his living experience there. “We chose the respite care option they offer,” Ellen says. “We weren’t sure how long he’d need to stay. As soon as my father arrived, everyone was so kind to us. The aides truly cared about what was happening to him, because he progressed rapidly. They checked on him every hour.” O n May 5, Jim attended one of Peregrine’s many regular social activities, a Cinco de Mayo party, and even enjoyed a margarita. “That was his last really good day,” Ellen recalls. “We were there as a family with him—welcomed by the staff and encouraged to be present and spend time together. It meant a lot to us to have that.” Two days later, Jim passed. After his passing, Ellen and her family were able to celebrate Jim’s life knowing that the care he had received, when he needed it most, was truly compassionate. “Our experience there was wonderful,” she says. “We feel really thankful.” Peregrine Senior Living offers short-term respite care and longterm residential and memory care living options. Activities, restaurant-style dining, transportation, spiritual services, a beauty spa, and other amenities create a fulfilling experience for residents while aides and nursing staff assist with a wide variety of medical needs. 40
