THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

by ANDREW TRAVERS

FILM ACTRESS AND ASPEN NATIVE Naomi McDougall Jones gets a homecoming film screening June 7 at the Wheeler Opera House. The 2005 Aspen High School graduate’s new film, “Imagine I’m Beautiful,” shows at 7:30 p.m. and will be a followed by an audience question-andanswer session with Jones, who not only stars but also wrote and produced the psychological thriller. Making the rounds on the festival circuit, “Imagine I’m Beautiful” and McDougall’s performance in it have won awards at the Arizona International Film Festival and Canada International Film Festival, among others. Growing up here, Jones was a regular in productions by Theatre Masters, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Theatre Aspen, Aspen Community Theatre and Thunder River Theatre. She went on to write and act on stage in New York, on television shows like “Boardwalk Empire” and in independent films. Back in 2012, when “Imagine I’m Beautiful” was still in pre-production and its creative team was seeking financing, Jones hosted an event titled “Daring to Dream” at the Wheeler. It highlighted local arts organizations and included a short-film contest for young locals, aimed at inspiring kids to follow their dreams as Jones did. It also included an early screening of “Imagine I’m Beautiful,” which was then titled “Under Her Skin.” On June 7, she returns with the final product. Presented by Nine Lives Pictures and Aspen Film, the event is for mature audiences only.

Aspen native Naomi McDougall Jones, right, is the star, writer and producer of “Imagine I’m Beautiful,” which screens June 7 at the Wheeler.

CURRENTEVENTS FESTIVAL

The Snowmass Rodeo begins its summerlong run on June 11. Demonstrations at Aspen Eco Fest include inventions like this solarpowered oven, on which Aspen Solar Inc.’s Mike Tierney baked cookies at a past Eco Fest.

with JOHN COLSON

Cops and quacks keep beating the anti-pot drum I NOTE THAT the drumbeats of anti-pot fearmongering are swelling in volume and intensity now that marijuana is a legal product in all its uses by those 21 or older in two states — Colorado and Washington — and is legal for medical uses in nearly half the states of the Union. And the source of those drumbeats, interestingly enough, in large part is a place dark and deep among the law enforcement and medical establishments, according to news stories. I find it interesting that both cops and quacks are shouting from the rooftops about the supposedly worsening dangers of pot, since these two groups have a vested interest in seeing that pot remain an illegal and underused substance in the human pharmacopaea. Cops, of course, want pot to stay on the list of banned substances because pot possession or distribution is by far the easiest bust they can make. It’s bulky to transport, it stinks to high heaven if you’re growing it in your basement or some backcountry plot illegally, and indoor cultivation operations are easy to spot thanks to the high volumes of electric power and water needed to sustain a crop. And, perhaps most importantly, the vast majority of pot smokers and dealers tend to pose little threat to cops, although the cops like to put on a massive assault on a suspected pot smoker’s crib just to make themselves (the cops) look tough and in charge. The quacks, similarly and in all but a few enlightened cases, don’t want pot to become legal as a medicine because it undoubtedly would interfere with the medicos’ nearmonopoly on health care. Their resistance to its use as a recreational relaxant and mental stimulant is based not only in the same monopoly-interest but also in a doctor’s general tendency to side with the authorities whenever drugs are being discussed. Many of the nation’s mainstream news organizations, unfortunately, find themselves picking up the drumbeat from the authorities and relaying it along their respective media — television, radio, newspapers, you name it. A June 1 story in The New York Times, for example, declared in its headline that five months after Colorado became the first state to permit the cultivation, possession, sale and manufacture of marijuana and related edible products, the state is experiencing “the downside of a legal high.” The reporter cites official sources who condemn the newly legal trade because

certain consumers have proven incapable of self-regulating their intake and have gotten sick or have hurt themselves or others. The article also gives voice to the legion of so-called “legalization opponents” who, themselves, work in a cottage industry that earns them a living for decrying all things pot-related. As have federal drug enforcement agencies, the police and the anti-addiction industry before it, this growing cottage industry of pot critics has its own vested interest in keeping alive Colorado’s “raging” battle over legalization, as described in the Times article. Other recent newspaper stories have highlighted the difficulties posed by the federal government’s continuing war on pot, a campaign that ignores large voter majorities in many states in favor of ending that war. At a recent conference of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws in Aspen, an attorney spoke of Colorado workers being fired from their jobs after drug tests revealed to their employers that the workers used pot in their off-hours, according to an Aspen Times article. Such acts by employers are not necessarily valid or legal, said attorney Kimberlie Ryan, of Denver, who specializes in employment law, but it goes on all the time, again thanks to that anti-pot bias that the government has cultivated for decades. It cannot be denied that, in a very small number of cases, pot use has been harmful and that unfortunately pot has fallen into the hands of a few kids. But to argue that such limited cases are justification for the continuing persecution of millions in this country, persecution that includes being shot and killed during botched drug raids or being imprisoned for lengthy terms, is sheer lunacy. People want to get out of their own heads occasionally, or treat themselves for minor ailments, and pot has proven to be a relatively harmless way of doing both for countless people over the course of centuries. To sanction the continuation of the aforementioned governmental crackdown, all in order to preserve the turf and the jobs of cops, anti-drug zealots and doctors intent on maintaining their hegemony on health care, is shameful. It’s almost enough to make one vote Libertarian, if only because it’s the only political party in this country that openly supports the legalization of pot.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

At its prominent Hyman and Galena location, Aspen Drug competed for customers’ loyalty by providing exceptional personal service.

THE WAY WE WERE The Aspen of my childhood was a small town with small-town

ethics and small-town habits. Contemporary culture contrasts with that town of yore — it was, we were, different. “Now” is not better, nor can one boast about “then”; the dissimilarities, however, are worth noting.

TO BEGIN WITH, there were more gas stations (six) than now. The one you patronized was not dictated by the price of gas. My family gassed up at Conner Chevron, not because it was the closest (it was actually the farthest away) and not because the gas had different additives (gas was gas in those days) but because the Conner family owned and operated the station. When I began driving, that loyalty continued; it would never occur to me to go to the Texaco or the Sinclair station. I refueled where I knew the people and they knew me. Grocery stores were chosen using similar criteria. There were several stores you could choose from: two in the west end of town, plus two downtown. We lived only half a block from Tom’s Market, but we shopped at Beck and Bishop. Tom’s, a new store, won the patronage of newcomers, but everyone else did most of their shopping at Beck and Bishop. Both

markets advertised specials, but price was only slightly relevant when deciding where to shop. Both Conner Chevron and Beck and Bishop maintained customer accounts. My mother could send me to the store for something, and the checkout person, who knew who I was, would put it on our account. Credit was extended for customers’ convenience. Just as Aspen’s bankers knew their clients, merchants knew the creditworthiness of their customers as well as their names. Your pharmacist was your pharmacist. Again, people didn’t compare prices, and most likely there wasn’t much difference. We traded with Aspen Drug. Yes, it was just a half-block away, but the reason we traded with it was our decades of loyalty to the Parsons family. The newcomer, Matthews, had a soda fountain that occasionally drew our attention, but for anything else it was Aspen Drug. Life was simple with fewer

Jun e 5 - Jun e 1 1 , 2014

fashion choices, and “shop locally” was more than a slogan. Although a few tourist stores sold clothing, locals who needed shoes or basic garb shopped at Kalmes Co. For anything else, you shopped at Aspen Supply, but we called it Sardy’s, where Bernie Popish or Tom Sardy would walk you to the shelf that held the exact item you needed, or they would order it for you. No one would consider driving to Glenwood or Denver to buy a bike — or anything else, for that matter. We all knew Sardy’s would provide. Business was transacted between “friends.” You traded with a person, not a store. Businesses competed for your loyalty by providing exemplary service rather than by cutting prices. In a small town, each business had its own niche and its own customer base. There was just enough business to keep everyone’s bank account in the black, and tourist spending could be divided up for extra profit.

When Carl Bergman bought out Matthews Drug in the 1960s, he began stocking his shelves with items that Walt Matthew had not sold. Matthews hadn’t sold those items because other businesses in town, rather than the other pharmacy, sold them. Bergman broke the unwritten rule: Do not sell what others sell; if you want to expand, then sell what no one else is selling. Aspen was growing rapidly by then; many new businesses opened and competed brazenly with established businesses. Oldtimers were shocked by Bergman’s practices, but he was only a harbinger of changing times. Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

“WORLD FAMOUS ASPEN ARTIST gets Architect’s License,” declared the Aspen Daily Times on Feb. 12, 1960. “An Aspenite since 1946, Herbert Bayer, one of the world’s most famous designers, was granted a license to practice as an architect in Colorado this month. Bayer, who studied and later taught at the renowned Dessau Bauhaus in Germany, has been acclaimed for his paintings, exhibition designs, photography, and typography as well as for building designs. .... For his Colorado license, Bayer submitted plans and descriptions of several buildings which he has designed in this country and abroad. Among the buildings with which he has been associated are the Aspen Meadows, the Aspen Health Center and the Aspen Meadows Central Building.” The photo above shows Bayer surveying a building that was under construction in Aspen in 1965.

GEAR of the WEEK

TRACK YOUR RIDE

THE DILEMMA: Ever seen those cool “elevation profiles” for organized foot-races or bicycle rides? They’re visual representations of both the linear distance and the vertical element of a trip — highly informative and visually pleasing to boot. But you’ve never seen one for your favorite lunchtime bike ride or that random hill-climb you just discovered.

THE FIX: Bike Tracks app

WHY IT WORKS:

GET IT

2

$

99

At the App Store

Created by Core Coders, the same outfit that made Ski Tracks (reviewed in this space several months ago), this 3.3-megabyte app is very similar. It performs the same functions as a cycle computer that attaches to your handlebar, but the graphic displays showing elevation and speed are a treat (check the gradient on McClure Pass!) as well as the surprisingly accurate maps that depict each “track.” The only drawback of Bike Tracks is that you can’t watch in real time as you ride; I pull out my iPhone whenever I stop and check my speed, elapsed time and mileage.

BONUS: The app keeps recording, quite accurately, even in places like the upper Fryingpan Valley, way out of cell or data range. And you can ride/record for hours without draining your battery.

WINEINK

WINE ON AN ISLAND

ANDREW WILL’S MAGNIFICENT WINERY AND WINES THE FINEST WINE TASTING I have ever attended by ferry took place at Vashon Island’s Andrew Will Winery on a picture-perfect day in May. The tasting itself was sublime. Andrew Will’s Bordeaux blends and single-varietal red wines are the epitome of Washington winemaking. They not only reflect the steady and gentle hand of KELLY J. HAYES winemaker Chris Camarda — they also define special places on earth, the Washington vineyards from which the fruit for the wines hails. But when one lives in the landlocked mountains of Colorado, it is easy to get gobsmacked by the beauty and, yes, the uniqueness of using the sea and the Washington State Ferry System as transportation. Traveling by boat across Puget Sound’s crystal-blue waters from Seattle to Vashon and then driving down the impossibly green back roads to a coastal winery to taste was a totally unforgettable experience. My visit to Andrew Will was as serendipitous as it was magnificent. In Seattle on business and knowing that there will be a contingent of Washington state winemakers (see page 13) coming to this year’s Food & Wine Classic, I felt compelled to sample some of the state’s better juice. When a last-minute invitation came from Andrew Will’s manager, Celia Congdon, to take the ferry to Vashon on a Saturday morning and taste with her, I instantly canceled all other plans and headed for the terminal. There are a few things you need to know about the Andrew Will Winery. First of all, there is no such

12

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

Jun e 5 - Jun e 1 1 , 2014

person as “Andrew Will.” The name is a combination of the first names of winemaker/proprietor Chris Camarda’s son Will and nephew Andrew. Reversed, of course. He named the winery when he first began making wine in Seattle in 1989 where he was sommelier. Though it has a tendency to create a little confusion, he kept it when he moved — press, tanks, barrels and all — to Vashon in 1994. Today, son Will works with his father at Andrew Will wines. Second, in the world of Washington wines, Camarda is a somewhat legendary figure. A perfectionist, he is passionate about vinyl recordings, eclectic art, wood-fired pizza and especially single-vineyard wines. He is known for being an outspoken and opinionated personality who truly puts his life ethos into the bottles he produces. And finally, while Camarda makes all his wines on Vashon, the only vine to be seen on site is an enormous, gnarly “T” vine from the Champoux Vineyard that hangs next to the barn door of the winery. Rather, he sources his fruit from four vineyards on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains, which divide the state into two very different climate zones. West is wet. East is dry. Though Camarda was not on Vashon for my visit (he was attending the Nantucket Wine Festival), Congdon was a morethan-capable and charming tour guide. As she took me first through the simple and efficient winery, where we barrel-tasted current vintages, and then through the exquisite gardens that surround the house that Chris shares with companion and artisan coffee roaster Robin Pollard (the former executive

director of the Washington Wine Commission), the conversation kept coming back to the vineyards. Congdon explained that Camarda’s goal is to find great vineyards and to let the wines speak for the vineyards. To that end, his fruit is sourced from just four vineyards: the fabled Champoux (yes, pronounced “shampoo”); Ciel du Cheval in Red Mountain, the hottest appellation in the state if not the country; Discovery Vineyard, which overlooks the mighty Columbia River; and his own Two Blondes Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Each of the wines bottled by Andrew Will (with the exception of the Sorella) identifies the vineyard, rather than the varietal, on a stark-white front label. This is an example of just how terroirfocused Camarda is. As I sat with Congdon, tasting through a number of vintages of wines from the different vineyards, I was struck by just

how lush the fruit was in the wines. The warmth of the eastern Washington growing region and the dry conditions coax the most out of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Merlot and, especially, the Cabernet Franc. Camarda is an evangelist for Washington state as a perfect location for Cabernet Franc. His 2010 Champoux Vineyard release is balanced by 30 percent of the grape, and the last two vintages of Ciel du Cheval have been blends of Merlot and Cab Franc exclusively. You’ll be able to taste the wines of Andrew Will during the Food & Wine Classic at the Washington Wine Commission Tent. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to take the ferry. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soon-to-be-designated appellation of Old Snowmass with his wife, Linda, and black Lab named Vino. He can be reached at malibukj@ aol.com.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE ANDREW WILL 2010 SORELLA This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA is just a colt, but given time it will evolve into a great Washington wine. Well-behaved tannins, deep and glorious dark fruits, and a sense of dust and dirt combine to make the wine one to bet on. The beautiful label is a painting of Annie, Chris Camarda’s late wife. A fine tribute, indeed.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

GREAT GRAINS

ARTISANAL SALT FOR EVERY SEASON TOO MUCH OF IT turns a food inedible. Too little, and a dish lacks oomph, maybe to the point that it’s not worth finishing. It’s found in every kitchen in the world, yet our planet will never run out of it. It’s toxic in high doses, but without it, we die. Salt just might be the most important ingredient in cooking— and in the history of human culture. Due AMANDA to its hard-to-harvest RAE nature—dredged from underground mines or evaporated from seawater— salt was once currency for many peoples, spawning wars and revolutions. The word salary derives from “sal,” the Latin word for salt; the commodity paid Roman soldiers for their service. “Salt of the earth,” was coined by Jesus to express how much he valued his disciples. In his 2003 book, “Salt: A World History,” scholar Mark Kurlansky sums it up best: “The only rock we eat, salt has shaped civilization from the very beginning.” Not all salt is equal, though. Iodized table salt, milled to tiny, uniform, cube-like crystals, is infused with chemicals and anticaking agents that can taste tinny and bitter. It’s cheap—and typically flavors cheap “food.” Kosher salt, usually free of additives, is the chef standard. The flatter, flakier grains help to draw moisture from ingredients, such as blood from meats to make them kosher. It’s not ideal for baking, but finer-grained sea salts work just fine. Artisan salts harvested from far-flung lands are experiencing something of a renaissance thanks to their higher mineral content, flavors of merroir, and unique crystal shapes suitable for different applications (seasoning, baking, finishing). Take City Market in El Jebel. Flanking the Murray’s Cheese case is an earth-toned mosaic: peachy flakes from Australia’s

Murray River; “Pure Ocean” granules from clear-blue waters off the Brazilian coast; greenish-gray, wet-looking Sel Grise Tamisé and fluffy, bright-white fleur de sel, often called “the caviar of salts,” skimmed from French Atlantic salt marshes. (See “Drink Up,” opposite page.) Next to the 8 to ten varieties in stock at any given time are square bricks and round plates of pure, iridescent-pink Himalayan salt, on which home cooks sear meats, fish, and fowl in a hot oven or grill to impart seasoning. All are imported directly from the source by 13-yearold, Washington-based Artisan Salt Company. (Unfortunately, the City Market in Aspen doesn’t have space for such a display. Whole Foods in Willits offers Himalayan pink, Bolivian rose, and French Sel Gris in its bulk spices section.) “Salts are becoming a big thing,” says City Market El Jebel deli department assistant manager Jeanette Lee. “We’ve had them for about a year and, definitely, it’s picked up. People stop all the time; at first they think it’s cheese. They’re constantly picking up the bricks.” Salish, a sandy-colored, alderwood-smoked sea salt from the Pacific Northwest is in high demand. “I put it on fish, it’s amazing,” says Lee, who’s usually around to offer suggestions and pick up tips herself. One customer raves about sprinkling Alaea, red Hawaiian sea salt, on caramel ice cream. Lee estimates she sells a few pounds of these granulated salts per month. The new plastic containers are large—holding a quarter to half pound of salt—so Lee often offers customers samples to try before they buy. (Transfer to a salt pig or other vessel to keep on the countertop, as chefs do, for easy access; grinders offer little precision.) Later, I notice how new this is when I plop a half-pound plastic container of Hiwa Kai black

lava sea salt onto the checkout conveyor belt. The cashier inspects it as if a package of moon rocks, holding it up and clucking a few Spanish sentences to the grocery bagger. I shouldn’t be too surprised. Hiwa Kai does have a striking appearance: Small dusty black granules with the faintest sheen. At home I discover that this Pacific-harvested finishing salt infused with activated charcoal takes seasoning to a new level. I sprinkle a few whole grains over hardboiled eggs for an intensely saline, aggressive crunch on creamy yolk. Another protein that doesn’t need much else besides salt to sing? Steak. “It’s the number one used ingredient in my kitchen, for sure,” says Steak House No. 316 executive chef Kathleen Crook. “A piece of meat with kosher salt and black pepper on it—that’s all it needs. It doesn’t need a marinade (or) any other stuff.” Crook estimates her kitchen

dips through about 144 pounds of kosher salt per month. That may sound like a lot for a 55-seat restaurant, but Steak House No. 316 probably goes through more meat than any other restaurant in town. “I brine our chicken,” Crook adds. “I pickle apples that went in a cocktail last summer, and will go in one of my salads this summer. I pickle cucumbers just for the staff to eat because it’s fun.” Crook also uses artisanal varieties—in moderation. She sprinkles smoked Maldon sea salt on top of her bourbon bread pudding with pecans and white chocolate…topped with smoked sea-salt caramel. “Salt is not as dangerous as people think,” Crook says. That being said, “I don’t use iodine salt at all. I don’t think its good for you.” She shudders. “When people start using that that, that’s when food gets salty.” Amanda Rae’s favorite combois fleur de sel and dark chocolate. amandaraewashere@gmail.com

DRINK UP “Salt provides a balance to cocktails,” says Anthony Bohlinger, executive bar director of Chefs Club by FOOD & WINE at the St. Regis Aspen, who tames sweet, sour, acidic, bitter, or bland—but never overly spicy—notes with salt. “It also enhances aromatics.” Bohlinger prefers Maldon flake from Essex, U.K., “an amazing sea salt that has no artificial additives, (just) pure, clean taste,” and features Swedish sea crystal Falksalt infused with Sicilian lemon on the restaurant’s spring/summer cocktail menu. Try the Valentino, a refreshing blend of freshsqueezed orange juice, Galliano liqueur, fresh ginger, homemade grenadine, and sparkling wine, sprinkled with citron salt flake, “a great low-alcohol cocktail, perfect for the high-altitude Aspen summer.”

GUNNER’S LIBATIONS

by JEANNE MCGOVERN

DRINK IT Gunilla created this column and said she wrote Libations without any real training other than in the spirit of “she is not a connoisseur, but she is heavily practiced.” Tequila — straight up — was her drink of choice. Cheers to that!

RAISE A GLASS, TO GUNILLA ONCE UPON A TIME, Gunilla and I butted heads; I’d say it’s because we were two fiercely passionate women with different jobs that had a different end-game (she in advertising; me in editorial). That all changed over a drink — well, a few drinks. And, over the years (and many more drinks), our friendship grew as fiercely passionate

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: Gunilla with musician Michael Franti at his “Do It For Love” benefit in Aspen; Gunilla and a few Aspen Times co-workers hamming it up at our company’s annual meeting on May 15, 2014; the quintessentially gorgeous Gunilla; the Asher family — Mark, Gunilla, David and Charlie.

as we were. For some 10 years, she was my go-to girl at the Times ... for honest encouragement, a lively debate, some good laughs, a big hug and so much more. Sure, we still butted heads. But that was G: A straight-shooter and beautiful fighter in all that she did — including her battle with cancer. I will miss Gunilla deeply, but I know she would want me — and all of us — to carry on by raising a glass in her memory every time we get the chance. Cheers, Gunner!

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by BARBARA PLATTS

TRANSIENCE IN THE WORKPLACE

ARE WE COMMITMENT-PHOBES WHEN IT COMES TO EMPLOYMENT? EVERY DAY, TYPICALLY IN THE EARLY MORNING, an email arrives in my inbox from Google Alerts. Good old Google scours the Internet daily for me in search of credible articles that include the word “millennials.” I skim these headlines often, looking for interesting material. While I enjoy what Google BARBARA has collected for PLATTS me, the information usually invites snickers as opposed to curiosity. The headlines tend to be either vague or outlandish: “Millennials Have No Idea Who Bernie Madoff Was” “Why do Millennials Not Understand Racism?” “The Saddest, Scariest Millennial Statistic You’ll See Today” “Millennials Still ‘Like’ the Human Touch” And, one of my personal favorites: “Millennials Are Just Screwed.” An article that displays investigatory journalism at its finest. But, last week, one particular story caught my eye. The article

was from The Guardian and was titled, “Millennials don’t expect to work anywhere for more than five years.” I was intrigued. So, in rare form, I clicked on the link and read past the headline. The article was based off of a five-year survey for which results will be fully released in a couple of weeks. The survey represents successful, young employees in 33 countries. After heavy and elongated questioning, results came back that were not indicative of how my cohorts and I approach our careers. Our intent is not typically to earn the gold watch for 25 years of service in one place, according to the study. Most of “us” (90 percent) said we did not plan to stay with any given employer for more than five years. Over a third (37 percent) wish to stay with that given employer for no more than two years. And nearly half (40 percent) of us are planning our next career move while starting a role at a new job. I will argue with anyone until the end of the day that sweeping assumptions in the news about millennials being “narcissists” and an “entitled generation” are just that, sweeping assumptions. But

this time, I fully agreed with this piece of news. Yes, that’s us. Whether we’re working hard or hardly working, we expect the right to be transient in our employment situations. Most of us no longer want to pay our dues and spend years climbing the corporate ladder. We want to go after what fulfills us in the moment. Often, this fleeting tendency actually ends up benefitting us. We’re able to broaden our resumes with interesting jobs and projects we’re fully invested in. Switching jobs also can aid in greater job fulfillment, which is more important among Generation Y than any past generations, according to a 2012 survey by New Impact. The results of this study seemed to shock the media. We millennials are getting called out as “human resources nightmares” and “pesky millennials” who leave our employers feeling “slapped in the face.” As easy as it is to scapegoat the millennials, we also have to take into account that times have changed. Today, we’re told that the job market isn’t looking out for us, so why should we be looking out

for it? In high school and college, we’re instructed to (figuratively speaking) tackle any job that comes our direction. And we need to (figuratively speaking) pummel anyone who gets in our way. We’re made to feel like if we don’t take any job we can postgraduation, we will be left starving on the streets (probably not figuratively speaking). Since we are taught to feel, and act, this desperate, we usually have much less desire to follow the rules set in place for us. So we’re founding our careers doing work that challenges and fulfills us, without the traditional emphasis on long-term employment at one place. Perhaps this is our way of changing the occupational terrain and instilling new norms that work with the current job market. We may very well be HR nightmares, but since the occupational terrain does not appear to be changing, I’m anticipating that we won’t, either. Barbara Platts doesn’t consider herself to be an HR nightmare, but then again, she’s never asked her higher-ups. She can be reached at bplatts.000@gmail.com, or follow her on Twitter @BarbaraPlatts.

VOYAGES

DESTINATION | COLORADO

by ROSANNA TURNER

GET AWAY FOR A DAY (OR TWO) SUMMER IN ASPEN can be great. It also can be stifling, with hordes of tourists, weekends of festivals and so much more going on — all the time. Now and again, you’re going to need a break. Camping is always an option, but here are more creative escapes. Swing over Glenwood Canyon Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is open all summer, and the drive from Aspen clocks in at about an hour. If you haven’t been before, you get to ride a gondola up to the park, which has an old-timey Western feel, giving you the urge to burst into a saloon and challenge someone to a draw. Swoon over stalactites with a cave tour inside the canyon, or ride the roller coaster perched at the very top. If you’ve been to the park before, there’s a new ride to look forward to. The Glenwood Canyon Flyer will swing you 1,400 feet above the Colorado River, which is either your idea of a good time or completely terrifying. Either way, there’s something for all ages at Glenwood Caverns, and the quieter crowds during the offseason make it an ideal time to go. For more information on Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, visit www.glenwoodcaverns.

com. Take to the air at Browns Canyon Operated by Noah’s Ark, the Browns Canyon Adventure Park just opened a year ago and is Colorado’s first aerial adventure course. There are multiple challenge courses, zip lines and a giant swing. John Williams, business manager at Noah’s Ark, said the courses vary in difficulty and park is open to kids 7 and older. “It’s very vertically challenging, but it’s also very physically challenging,” Williams said. “It’s a great place for families to come together.” Browns Canyon is located in Buena Vista; take Independence Pass, and then head south. For more information, visit www.noahsark.com. Rock climb at Rifle Mountain Park Ready to scramble up some rock faces? Then head to Rifle Mountain Park, which has roughly 250 routes for both beginner and advanced climbers. What makes the park a world-renowned climbing destination is how easy it is to access compared with places such as Yosemite National Park in California, said Wayne Edgeton, assistant recreation director for the city of Rifle. “It’s really close to the

road,” Edgeton said. “Most of the routes are 60 to 70 feet, 9 to 12 bolts, and not many of the routes crest out to the canyon. (You can climb) whatever your arm pump can stand.” For guided rock-climbing tours at Rifle, visit www.glenwood climbingguides.com. For more information on Rifle Mountain Park, visit www.rifleco.org. Drink the day away in Boulder Boulder has great shopping, a surplus of hippies and throngs of fixed-gear bikes. It also has an abundance of breweries. With 17 different breweries in the area, you can sample as many local craft brews as your gut can hold. Boulder Brew Tours offers both walking and driving tours and promises “plenty of beer,” owner Lee Olliffe said. “One of the first breweries in Colorado started in Boulder,” Olliffe said. “People get to learn about the brewing process, meet some brewmasters and taste some fantastic beer.” Walking brew tours are $29 per person; driving tours are $39 per person. For more information, visit www.boulderbrewtours.com. Tour high-elevation wine country in West Elks For a two-day trip, heading

west is best. Instead of touring the popular wineries in Palisade, head a bit farther south to West Elks American Viticultural Area, home to Colorado’s North Fork Valley wineries. Located in Delta County, West Elks has more than 10 wineries, including Terror Creek Winery, the highestelevation vineyard in North America. Joanna Gilbert, co-owner of Leroux Creek Inn and Vineyard, said the region has a rustic feel not found in most other parts of the state. “(It) reminds people of old-time Colorado,” Gilbert said. “It’s very untouched. A lot of people come here and say the area reminds them of Sonoma 40 years ago.” Gilbert and her husband, Yvon Gros, lived in Vail for more than 20 years before moving west and opening their winery. Gros said that, as with peaches, the cool nights and hot days of the area balance the acidity in the wine and give it a distinct taste. “Our vineyards are small, so the quality of wine is pretty high,” Gros said. “The winemakers here are very attentive and add a personal (touch).” Most wineries in West Elks open the first week of May. For a map and more information on doing a biking or driving wine tour, visit www.westelksava.com.

THE WORLD AROUND US IN TODAY’S FASTPACED world, it seems we are faced with choices everywhere we turn. Among those choices is how we spend our free time; how we choose recreate. Do we roam the globe? Do we drive across the country? Do we hike far into the surrounding backcountry? No matter which we way we go, decisions must still be made. In this week’s cover story, writers and editors from High Country News talk with experts in the field of travel and debate the pros and cons of one way many Westerners choose to explore the world around us.

ADVENTURE TRAVEL VS. CONSERVATION A CONVERSATION WITH OUTDOOR ENTREPRENEUR BILL BRYAN by RAY RING

BILL BRYAN HAS A TALENT for straddling widely different worlds. He grew up on a small farm in Maine, went to a prestigious prep school then attended public universities for a Ph.D. that combined political science, social psychology and ecology. Delving into environmental studies in the late 1960s and early ’70s, he developed a nature program for fourth-graders in New York City, ran a K-12 environmental-ed program in rural Michigan and led students from the East on trips into the Rocky Mountains and Alaska. Then he moved to Montana in 1972 to run the Northern Rockies Action Group, which helped organize many local green groups; he also served as a consultant to national groups like The Wilderness Society. In 1985, Bryan came up with the idea for a new kind of travel company that would combine conservation goals with cultural sensitivity. He and his wife, Pam, built their company — Off the Beaten Path, based in Bozeman, Mont. — into a $5 million to $7 million per year operation, and he helped manage it until 2012. Now he’s president of OneMontana, a nonprofit he helped establish to bridge the rural-urban divide through a high school student exchange program and other strategies. Bryan, now 70, talked with High Country News about the relationships among adventure travel, conservation and communities.

Q: How did you evolve from conservation advocacy to the adventure-travel business? A: One of the challenges in conservation work is people saying, “Well, you don’t really understand the real world until you do something in the for-profit world.” Both Pam and I had a passion for the Northern Rockies, not just the natural resources but also the people here. Off the Beaten Path offered “custom travel” experiences. By that, I mean we connected with people who were interested in coming to the Northern Rockies and interviewed them about their tastes and what they might want to experience, and then we put together trips tailored for them and for their budgets. No one else in the travel business back then was doing what we did. We gave each customer a spiral-bound book that told them everything they needed to know on their trip, as soon as they got off the plane or as soon as they drove into our region. If they needed to go 10 miles down the road and turn left, it was in the book, along with various things along the way that we thought they might have interest in. Condé Nast Traveler called us “the travel shrinks of the West.” Eventually, we expanded into Alaska, then the Southwest, the Patagonia region of Chile and Argentina, the Northwest and California, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, New Zealand and Australia. Pam and I led walking trips in Patagonia nearly every year.

people into the ice regions to observe climate change. Natural Habitat Adventures, out of Boulder, Colo., has a relationship with World Wildlife Fund. Backroads, out of Berkeley, Calif., offers conservation-minded biking and hiking trips. Other companies specialize in bird-watching trips. Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, out of Bozeman, helps qualified travelers volunteer to do research in the outdoors. Smaller groups like Montana Audubon offer local trips for their members. There are other companies doing it, too, now. Q: And this is a good trend? A: Yes. In order to deal with these environmental issues, you have to get outdoors, and you can’t think just about your own backyard; you have to think about the larger context. Travel helps with that. Most of these conservationminded travel companies attract customers who, even if they’re not members of conservation groups, they’re looking for a learning experience. ... You’d be surprised how many people come out here without a clue. They want to come to a dude ranch, and they ask about the ranch’s spa program and whether there’s a swimming pool, how fancy are the meals, and can they do a bit of horseback riding or fishing in a pond that’s stocked? They want their amenities to come with them.

Q: And you involved Native Americans pretty much from the beginning? A: I had written a book that came out in 1985, “Montana Indians: Yesterday and Today,” and updated it in 1996, profiling leaders of each reservation. That helped Off the Beaten Path do trips on the reservations. Beginning in the early 1990s up to 2009 or so, Bill Yellowtail (a member of the Crow tribe who held positions in the Montana Legislature, the Environmental Protection Agency and Montana State University) and I led nine-day trips that began on the Blackfeet Reservation and swung up to the Blood and the North Piegan reservations in Alberta and back down to the Flathead Reservation. We were trying to give (tourists) a sense of hope on the reservations. We met with the tribal college presidents and various human-resource people and natural-resource people within the tribes; we went to the Heart Butte powwow, the most authentic one around; we once were invited to a sun dance, and people did sweats. But we had a hard time selling the reservation Bill Bryan, center, with sons Joe, left, and Scott, scout “family friendly” backcountry adventures in the Wind River Mountains for Off the trips. People would go visit tribes in Peru or Beaten Path in 1990. Bolivia — that was a whole different ballgame; customers were more interested in going there. Another problem with going to Q: On any conservation-minded trips, you think adventure travel should reservations here: People don’t want to go on a vacation and feel guilty — not engage the local cultures respectfully? that we wanted to make them feel that way, but any (white) American who A: Everywhere we go, travel should be accountable to the local communities spends time on an Indian reservation, with the poverty, you’ve got to fight your and accountable to the environment.

Companies doing 30 bus trips per year in Yellowstone bring in guides from Santa Barbara Q: Your trips also included conservation issues. How unusual is that? and Connecticut because that’s also cheaper and easier than hiring local guides. A: The whole idea that if you’re coming out here, you need a guide who isn’t To encourage more accountability, Off the Beaten Path and Lindblad and a few just a fishing guide or a hunting guide, was new when we started Off the Beaten other companies created the Adventure Collection, an organization advocating Path. We hired local naturalist guides for trips to Yellowstone and Patagonia for all companies to be “deeply respectful of our travel destinations” (according to and so on. the “travel ethic” posted on www.adventurecollection.com) while minimizing our impact. We call for travelers to engage with local communities, to help sustain Q: Were conservation groups selling similar trips? them, and for educating travelers on the best cultural and ecological practices. A: The Sierra Club had its own program, and still does — moderately priced Those that try to be accountable will do it to a certain extent, always with trips led by local Sierra Club members who are not necessarily professional the profit margin in mind. It’s easy to develop trips to see polar bears around experts. Other national groups have travel programs where they contract Churchill (on the shore of Canada’s Hudson Bay); lots of people want to do out to an Off the Beaten Path-type organization — trips mainly for donors that. It’s much more difficult to develop trips to see something like the blackor just for their membership.

HOUSEBOATERS VS. RIVER RUNNERS TWO WRITERS DEBATE THE CULTURAL DIFFERENCES OF FAST-WATER PADDLERS AND STILL-WATER LUXURY BOATERS

by ANDREW GULLIFORD AND JONATHAN THOMPSON

ANDREW GULLIFORD, a professor in Durango, spent five days last summer on a houseboat floating around Utah’s most famous party scene, Lake Powell — a reservoir on the Colorado River — and then another five running the Yampa and Green rivers on the Colorado-Utah border. Gulliford noticed sharp differences between the cultures of houseboating and river-running. But High Country News senior editor Jonathan Thompson, also based in Durango, has a slightly different take on the subject. ANDREW GULLIFORD: Lake Powell has a white bathtub ring around its 1,960 miles of sandstone shoreline, because of the drought, yet it still draws over 1.5 million visitors each year to a surreal setting that includes 80-degree water. A festival atmosphere prevails, with kids swimming, teenagers zooming around on jet skis, parents grilling meat and everyone sipping cold drinks. Larger

houseboats, like a 75-foot-long triple-decker, rent for up to $15,000 a week in summer and include air conditioning, multiple refrigerators, plasma TV and a hot tub. The big boats’ names display owners’ attitudes: No Pressure, Lovin’ It, Half-Quacked and Sotally Tober. When houseboaters “camp” in the evening, they often just anchor in coves or off beaches. If they come ashore, they bring everything from gas grills to plastic water slides. Tourists whack golf balls off the roofs of houseboats, set off illegal fireworks, carve graffiti on 200 million-year-old sandstone and leave heaps of trash. On one July Fourth weekend alone, two were arrested for “boating under the influence” and 67 were cited for safety violations; another 123 received warnings to shape up or ship out. JONATHAN THOMPSON: In my experience, Lake Powell is more than a lawless, rednecksuffused zoo. Like anywhere, it has its share of idiots, and giving them motors, boats and beers tends to heighten the stupidity. Still, because it’s federally managed as the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, there are pretty strict rules regarding waste disposal, speeds, etc. Plenty of Lake Powell boaters are there to enjoy nature, even with the help of motors. Several years ago, my wife, Wendy, and I did a surprisingly tranquil three-day kayaking trip on Lake Powell. True, there were the dudes who came ripping down windy side canyons in speedboats blaring

rap music out of concert-hall sound systems, but they not only slowed down when they saw us, they even stopped to chat. We saw houseboats toting sea kayaks, headed into remote areas, where they could then paddle up narrower channels. We even saw a colossal houseboat flying two giant rainbow flags: a lesbian party cruise. AG: Switching from Lake Powell to the rivers, it was like I was on another planet. Most river runners do their thing in small human-powered oar boats and paddle rafts, along with kayaks and inflatable rubber duckies. They have an occasional new boat, but most of their gear is well-worn, punctured and patched. They measure their experience by miles paddled and canyons hiked, proceeding through a natural quiet punctuated by the roar of rapids, in living riparian zones featuring native vegetation and wildlife at water’s edge. After a good day’s run, they haul gear from boats to favorite campsites. They contain their waste – the

“pack it in, pack it out” mentality – so that campsites are left clean. River runners do act zany, of course: They flip their boats and get boats stuck on rocks and simply fall in after drinking too much. JT: Yes, a lot of paddlers and rafters are low-budget nature lovers. But just as many spend outrageous amounts on the newest boats and gear and burn plenty of fossil fuel going to and from the rivers. River runners are almost as likely as jet skiers to be fueled by adrenaline, testosterone and beer: As the Grand Canyon river rangers warned us prior to a private raft trip, the biggest danger on the river tends not to be the rapids but alcohol-induced falls (off a ledge, into the water, into the fire) right in the campsite. AG: OK, I agree that these two water-loving cultures have much in common. Both have largely come about since World War II, with the advent of big Western dams and neoprene and hypalon tubes for rubber rafts. In both, people get serious sunburn and enjoy stars at night, and being on the water is often a family tradition. Who can argue with quality time spent with family and friends? The two cultures are also drawn together by climate change, which is reducing river flows and reservoir levels. So maybe they are not on different planets after all. This story was published as part of a 2014 special issue of the HCN magazine devoted to travel in the West. Andrew Gulliford is a professor of history and environmental studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango. He’s authored several books, including “Outdoors in the Southwest: An Adventure Anthology,” released this month, “advocating an outdoor ethic based on curiosity, cooperation, humility.”

by ANDREW TRAVERS

POETIC JUSTICE:

WITH ROBUST SUMMER ENTERTAINMENT LINEUP, JUSTICE SNOW’S AIMS TO OFFER MORE THAN FOOD AND DRINK WITH A STEADY STREAM OF FREE MUSIC from local and touring

acts, alongside poetry readings and live drawing, Justice Snow’s is poised to become a significant player on the Aspen nightlife entertainment scene this summer. In the two years since it opened in the Wheeler Opera House, the Victorian-era-themed restaurant and bar has won plaudits for its cocktails and atmosphere, including a Playboy magazine nod as best high-altitude bar. Starting in early June, Justice Snow’s is aiming to carve out a niche in Aspen that falls somewhere between the laid-back cover shows of après-ski and the premier concert events at Belly Up and the Wheeler Opera House. The summer lineup kicks off June 5 with a performance by locals Jackson Emmer, Robin Kim, Ross Kribbs, Alison May and Lester Price, with Snowmass artist Sara Fowler accompanying them with live drawing. Emmer, who books shows for the bar, says he’s aiming to make Justice Snow’s a place where you can drop in casually to hear high-quality, free music. “There are many other places in the country where you can go to any bar and hear awesome, inspiring artists and music,” he said. “But I think that’s rare in Aspen. You have to pay for

your ticket or do the après-ski thing, which is not about the art. So at Justice Snow’s now we’re trying to offer this artistic experience in a downhome, boozy environment.” On June 6 and 8, the bar hosts touring Ontario-based soul singer Miss Emily, whom Emmer describes as “an unexpectedly great one-woman cabaret.” For brunch on June 8, background music is provided by the local Celtic music troupe The Crowlin’ Ferlies, led by Sandy Munro. And on June 11, local singer-songwriter Dan Sheridan plays the bar. Whether they’re based in the valley or elsewhere, Emmer is attempting to bring original voices into Justice Snow’s, hoping to make it a live-music destination downtown. “We ask performers to do something unique that’s not already happening in Aspen,” he said. “We don’t have bands playing ‘Margaritaville.’ They’re playing their own music.” In August, Justice Snow’s will host its second Americana Series. Inaugurated in February, it brings in a resident band to play a different style of American music each Sunday and Wednesday night, with various local musicians joining in and Justice’s bartenders providing themed cocktails corresponding with the music’s era or region. Local poets also are finding a

home at Justice Snow’s. Following regular Poets in the Parlor events, curated by dancer and choreographer Alya Howe and featuring local talents, this month the bar is trying out a “Poetry Brothel” format that encourages audience engagement. It’s free; however, like other brothels, it encourages audience members to put up cash for their favorite poems and poets. Valley poets and spoken-word artists like Jackson Hardin, Anika Jade and Wade Newsom will be reading and offering their services to the crowd. “It’s a unique scene for this area,” Emmer said. “We saw the opportunity to do something new for Aspen.”

BOOK REVIEW

‘AN IMPENETRABLE SCREEN OF PUREST SKY’ DAN BEACHY-QUICK’S debut novel, “An Impenetrable Screen of Purest Sky,” is an ambitious undertaking packed with big ideas, meta-fictional sleight of hand and postmodern pyrotechnics. It’s an admirable, shoot-for-the-moon kind of book. Unfortunately, it falls short of the stratosphere and gets lost in the clouds. Part campus novel and part fairy tale, it’s narrated by Daniel, a college teacher struggling to finish a novel, grappling with his absent father and obsessed with “Moby-Dick.” The novel within the novel turns out to be “An Impenetrable Screen of Purest Sky” itself, and off BeachyQuick goes exploring parallel universes, the uncertain ground of his fictive reality and Daniel’s unreliable memory. The layers and multiple story threads multiply amid ruminations on “MobyDick,” legends and myths and regular appearances by a character named Pearl who explores an ocean under a bed. You can get lost pretty often in these

pages. But maybe that’s the point. It invites readers to wonder whether Beachy-Quick is examining the pretensions of his high-minded, navelgazing protagonist or if Beachy-Quick is just being pretentious. I wanted to love this book. I wanted to be wowed by all of its mind tricks and linguistic gymnastics and to see its aspirations add up to something. But in the end, “An Impenetrable Screen of Purest Sky” is just exasperating and, yes, often impenetrable. Sentence-for-sentence, though, Beachy-Quick — a Colorado State University professor and author of five poetry books — is a joy to read. He has a poet’s ear for language and its rhythms. It includes long, finely crafted, manyclaused sentences that can be read, reread and chewed over like stand-alone poems. “Memory,” he writes, “is igneous more than ingenious, igneous, and like granite, intrusive, heaved up within oneself, the
