throughout our history to gain rights not simply for themselves, but for many other under-represented and disenfranchised groups in America. Women’s History Month has its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Through-

| MARCH 2019

out the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed legislation designating the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the country and recognize specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields. In 2012, Obama proclaimed, “during Women’s History Month, we recall that the pioneering legacy of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers is revealed not only in our museums and history books, but also in the fierce determination and limitless potential of our daughters and granddaughters. As we make headway on the crucial issues of our time, let the courageous vision championed by women of past generations inspire us to defend the dreams and opportunities of those to come.” To learn about women’s role in the history of Colorado, visit the Center for Colorado Women’s History at Byers-Evans House, 1310 Bannock St. in Denver. It focuses on scholarship, research, lectures, tours and exhibits that expand the understanding and collective memory of the history of women in Colorado. Most importantly, the Center is connecting local stories to the broader stories of women’s history worldwide. It is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday, 1-4 p.m. The Byers-Evans House has been the home to inspiring women since 1883. It has been beautifully restored to the era of 1912-1924 and is furnished with the Evans family’s belongings. Guided house tours weave together the stories of the many women who lived and worked in the home and the impact of the families on early Denver.

Seasonal restrictions protect nesting birds of prey BOULDER COUNTY To protect nesting golden eagles, the U.S. Forest Service implemented annual area closures in Boulder Canyon beginning Feb. 1. The closures include popular rock climbing spots at Eagle Rock, Blob Rock, Bitty Buttress and Security Risk in Boulder Canyon. Watch for sings. These areas are located along Colorado Highway 119, approximately 1.5 miles east of Boulder Falls. Effective through July 31, 2019, the closures www.mmacmonthly.com

protect a long-established golden eagle nesting territory. Happy Hour, Bihedral and Riviera will remain open as long as visitors stay out of the closed areas. “These closures allow the birds to choose a nest site without human disturbance,” said Boulder District Ranger Angela Gee. “The chosen site remains closed until the eagles fledge in late July, but we typically reopen other parts of the area earlier.” The Boulder Ranger District part-

ners with the Boulder Climbing Community and the Access Fund to monitor nesting progress and to inform climbers about the importance of giving the eagles space to raise their young. Federal and state laws prohibit disturbing any nesting bird of prey. Visitors can help protect wildlife by respecting all closures. Signs will be posted at key access points into the closed areas. Closure information will be available online at local climbing websites and at fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/eagles.

Blazing Their Own Way Book highlights 30 years of Leftover Salmon history


COLORADO ew bands stick around for 30 years. Even fewer bands leave a legacy during that time that marks them as a truly special, once-in-lifetime type band. And, no band has done all that and had as much fun as Leftover Founding members Drew Emmitt Salmon, which once called Nederland home. Since its earliest days as a pro(lower left) and Vince Herman (top gressive, “poly-ethnic Cajun slam-grass” bluegrass-based act with members right) are now joined by bassist that had the guts to add drums to the mix to their role as a pioneer of the modern Greg Garrison, drummer Alwyn jam-band scene, Leftover Salmon has been a crucial link in keeping alive the Robinson, banjo-wiz Andy Thorn traditional music of the past while at the same time pushing that sound forward and keyboardist Erik Deutsch. with their own weirdly, unique style. As Leftover Salmon nears its 30th year, the band’s inspiring story is told in the new book, Leftover Salmon: Thirty Years of Festival!. In the book, critically-acclaimed author of , Tim Newby, presents an intimate portrait of Leftover Salmon through the personal recollections of its band members, family, friends, former band-mates, managers, and the countless musicians they have influenced. Leftover Salmon: Thirty Years of Festival! is a thorough guide covering a 30-year journey of a truly remarkable band. It is a tale of tragedy and rebirth, friendships and losses, musical discoveries, Wild West adventures and those who fortify Salmon’s unique voice. “Tim Newby has somehow managed to capture the unique combination of personalities that is Leftover Salmon; a feat that I would have thought fairly impossible. As unique as their music, Tim weaves his story through the sensibilities of the individual players which creates a wonderful kaleidoscope resulting in the definitive biography of a band that is still constantly changing and growing into their fourth decade,” Steve Berlin of Los Lobos said. After 30 years, Leftover Salmon shows no signs of slowing down as band members come off the release of their most recent album, Something Higher, which has been hailed as one of the band’s finest releases. Something Higher shows how Leftover Salmon is proving it’s possible to recreate themselves without changing who they are. The band now features a line-up that has been together longer than any other in its history. Catch the band with numerous special guests at its new Boogie at the Broadmoor festival in Colorado Springs, David Grisman joins Leftover Salmon’s Drew Emmitt, Vince March 22-24.

Planet Bluegrass has announced its 2019 Wildflower Pavilion schedule with four nights in March and April featuring top acoustic acts including John Gorka, Ímar, Lindsay Lou, Old Salt Union and the opening bands. Tickets are on sale now. ACOUSTIC The 4800 square-foot Wildflower Pavilion on the Planet Bluegrass Ranch has been called Colorado’s “Cathedral of Bluegrass” and a “Sanctuary of Song.” The 300-seat facility features state-of-the-art construction with custom trusses to eliminate posts that obstruct views. All shows are general admission and children under 12 are free with a paying adult. The season begins with John Gorka, March 22 at 8 p.m. Korby Lenker opens. Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer-songwriters, John Gorka illuminates instead with his trademark wordplay, twisting, turning and tying words and phrases in the way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Few contemporary songwriters coax language as deftly as Gorka. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Glasgow’s hottest new folk ensemble, Ímar makes Colorado debut in the Wildflower Pavilion, March 29 at 8 p.m. with support from Moors & McCumber. The band’s unmistakable synergy centers on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and Isle of Man. All three once shared the same Gaelic language and a similar kinship endures between the musical traditions. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. The season continues, April 5 at 8 p.m. with Lindsay Lou, who has made soulful, poignant music for a decade. An undeniable powerhouse, her

remarkable gifts as a singer, songwriter, musician and performer demand attention. Her singing floats over the masterful playing and deep groove of her band with both a fierce intensity and tender intimacy. The Waydown Wanderers open. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door. Old Salt Union performs in the pavilion, April 19 at 8 p.m. The string band was founded by a horticulturist, cultivated by classically trained musicians, and fueled by a vocalist/bass player who is also a hip-hop producer with a fondness for the Four Freshmen. It is this collision of styles and musical vocabularies that informs their fresh approach to bluegrass and gives them an electric live performance vibe that seems to pull more from Vaudeville than the front porch. Tickets are on sale now at shop.bluegrass.com and 800-624-2422. Visit bluegrass.com to learn more about Wildflower Pavilion concerts as well as all events at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch, 500 West Main St. in Lyons, including the 47th RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival, July 26-28, and the 29th Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Aug. 16-18.

NOTEWORTHY Meadow Mountain - Meadow Mountain • March 15: Gothic Theatre, Englewood, CO • 8 p.m. • $15-$20


eadow Mountain released its self-titled, debut album, Meadow Mountain, in November 2018. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters, the album was released on Tape Time Records , a label curated by The Infamous Stringdusters. Recorded in Denver at Mighty Fine Productions, the 11 tracks on the album showcase the band’s wide array of musical influences, culminating in a powerful and unique acoustic sound. Meadow Mountain—comprised of Summers Baker on guitar, Jack Dunlevie on mandolin, Ian Parker on violin and viola, George Guthrie on banjo, and Wilson Luallen on bass—are a band in the true sense of the word. Their music plays to each members’ individual strengths, and the finished product is a style of music rooted in traditional, harddriving bluegrass. “In a world of constant string band evolution, Meadow Mountain has distinct ties to all the best elements of bluegrass, which really makes them stand out from their peers,” Pandolfi said. “They combine that with really strong songwriting chops to create a unique sound that fans of acoustic music will surely gravitate toward.” From start to finish, the album creates a synergy of old and new musical concepts. “Careless Heart”, the opening track, features a hard-driving, classic bluegrass sound, showcasing their deep connection to the traditions of the genre. Each song on the album shows the range of the group’s ability to bend tones and styles of bluegrass instruments to create something completely original. Meadow Mountain has become one of the premier voices in the Colorado bluegrass scene and in 2017 solidified its reputation by winning first place in the RockyGrass Band Competition. With the release of the debut album, there is “new excitement” in the band. Meadow Mountain is available for purchase or steaming on a wide range of online music platforms.

Artists fill Gilpin gallery with recent works


CENTRAL CITY he Gilpin County Arts Association features the work of Walter Barton and W. Max Thomason in “Just Between Us,” one of its first wintertime exhibitions in the newly heated, and recently repainted, Washington Hall Gallery, 117 Eureka St. The life-sized sculptures and large-scale oil paintings can be viewed through May 3 during gallery hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Washington Hall Gallery’s walls Friday-Sunday. A closing reception is planned for May 3 from 5-8 p.m. are filled with paintings by W. Max Thomason is a Denver-based artist that works in the natural-realism, abThomason (above). The Grindstone is one of several paper maché and foam stract and, at times, pop genres. He is known for his large-scale canvases. sculptures by Walter Barton (right). From 1990-96, he studied under Amy Métier at Metropolitan State UniverPhotos by Jeffrey V. Smith sity of Denver and University of Colorado Denver. The greatest influence on his early painting years were the Fauvists of the early 1900’s and the realists of the 1960s and 70s. He’s participated in multiple group and solo exhibits to date in Colorado, Louisiana, Florida, New York and Austria . He is also the owner of Bitfactory Gallery and Bitfactory Studios. “I have long been intrigued by color, depth of perception, and things moving in and out of focus, both literally and figuratively in society; and the effect, in both the literal and figurative sense, they have on a person and the psyche,” Thomason said. “Color and focus are the cornerstones of this exhibition, and I hope will be the inspiration for a dialogue of how we as humans interface with each other and our surroundings as we go through the minutiae of daily life.” Barton, another Denver native, began his training at Parsons School of Design in New York City. After his first year, he served a bronze casting appren­ticeship with David McGary in Ruidoso, NM before getting a BFA at Maryland Insti­tute, College of Art in Baltimore. He later received a Masters in Humanities from CU Denver. He is a member with the Pirate Contemporary Art Gallery located in Lakewood and an arts teacher at the Cherokee Trail Elementary School in Douglas County. “In my work I am inves­tigating archetypes of memory and myth. My process is an intuitive response to materials and images in my environment as I engage in a search for identity and meaning,” Barton said. “Conceptually, I am attracted to the sediment of the human psyche, the heritage of ancestral motifs and perceptions filtered through modern society, while situated in the geology and history of the American West.” W.

Final ‘Back Pew’ melodrama planned ESTES PARK

Tickets are on sale now for what producers say will be the last melodrama staged by Back Pew Creations at Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies. “Yes, for sure this is my last one as playwright,” says author, actor, and director Rich Mitchell. “Let’s THEATER just say this concludes my series on Estes Park early history. There are no plans for any additional plays.” Back Pew Creations chair Ginger Wilkinson and her husband Ivan agree. “Yes. We’re done. I love doing it, but I think we’re done.” It’s the end of almost two decades of melodramas that produced groans, gasps, and good memories for those who sat in the audience and listened to some rather fractured tales about Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the entire area. The last melodrama is titled “The Great Estes Park Growth Spurt or What Do We Want to Be When We Grow Up?” and will be performed, March 15-16 and 22-23 at 7 p.m. with a matinee, March 24 at 3 p.m. at Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies, 1700 Brodie Ave. “The premise is that in the early days, as the town started to grow, there was some thinking that we need to kind of help shape what the future of this town’s going to be so we end up with the kind of town that we want - which is a family tourist town.” That’s how Mitchell describes his play. “They (town leaders) don’t want another Central City or a wild, open western town. They want it to stay as a family tourist spot.” But what would a melodrama be without a villain? That’s the role Mitchell plays—a guy named Jim Khanna. He’s “a gambler who has been

Melodrama cast

caught cheating every place he goes.” Mitchell says the gambler “realizes he’s going to have to keep it kind of under wraps for awhile.” He has a partner who is a fortune teller and they “work together to find suckers and set them up with these illegal gambling spots.” There’s also a hero—County Commissioner Jerry Mander—and assorted other characters who produce a plethora of puns and jokes that keep audiences in stitches. The play is always a load of laughs, but its purpose is serious. It raises money for the mission work of the church with all proceeds divided among Lifelong Learning of Estes Valley, Crossroads Ministry, and Estes Park Crisis Advocates. In recent years the melodrama has been a sellout. There are enough seats for about 120 people, so get tickets early. Adults are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Children 12 and under are $5 each. Tickets can be purchased at Macdonald’s Book Store or in the church office. Visit estesparkpresbyterian.org or call 970586-4404 to learn more.

Spring brings deals, special events to ski areas COLORADO Spring is approaching in Colorado, bringing warmer weather, longer days, bluebird skies and outstanding skiing and snowboarding conditions to Colorado Ski Country USA member resorts including Eldora Mountain Resort, Loveland Ski Area, Winter Park Resort, Arapahoe Basin and Copper Mountain. Newcomers to skiing and riding can take advantage of discounted lift tickets, festive events and dozens of family-friendly activities. Below are some pointers for newcomers and long-time Colorado residents alike to enjoy spring skiing and riding in Colorado: Learn to Ski or Ride this Spring For those new to snowsports, spring is one of the best times of the ski season to learn. Guests will find warmer spring temperatures, plenty of sunshine and a welcoming, stress-free environment. Enrolling in ski school for professional instruction is the best first step for newcomers and those returning after a few seasons off. Ski areas offer great deals and discounts in the spring. Come Prepared for Variable Weather Conditions It’s always a good idea to account for changing weather conditions in Colorado’s high country. While warmer, sunny spring conditions are common spring weather can turn wintry again unexpectedly. In order to avoid being caught off guard when blue skies give way to snowflakes, experienced spring skiers and riders know to pack layers and extra gear to accommodate any changes in weather. Consider the “Second Shift” of Afternoon Skiing During the spring, some of the softest snow conditions can be found in the late morning or afternoon. Second shift skiing also allows for a slower morning and accommodates a busy schedule. Skiers and riders can also find great discounts on half-day lift tickets. Page 16

Not Ready to Hit the Slopes? Not a Problem For guests who aren’t ready to give skiing or snowboarding a try, or families with both skiers and non-skiers in tow, ski areas offer dozens of family-friendly non-skiing activities. Ride a mountain coaster, take a guided snowshoe tour, ice skate on a pond or experience a gourmet dining experience. Spring is Prime Season for Après Colorado’s spring skiing conditions are worldclass and the spring après-ski scene is even better. Ski areas offer plenty of options to occupy skiers and riders after the lifts have closed, from sunny patios and relaxing environments to live music and festivals. Don’t Forget the Sunscreen Skiers and snowboarders should be mindful of sun exposure all season, but it’s especially important in the spring. With blue skies and longer days, sunscreen can help avoid the sunburns. Reapplying sunscreen mid-day is highly recommended. Find End-of-Season Deals on Gear and Equipment Spring is the perfect time to stock up on skiing and snowboarding gear, when ski areas and ski shops alike offer end-of-season deals to make space for next season’s inventory. Guests can find bargains on everything from skis and snowboards to soft goods like outerwear, base layers and gloves.

ce climbing in the Colorado Rockies can be an amazing experience. Each winter many Colorado rock climbers become ice climbers while others travel long distances to take advantage of our state’s ice. The sport includes variables like the cold weather, a complex and interesting climbing surface and some odd equipment, but it’s not unlike regular rock climbing; offering the same “natural high” and sense of accomplishment at reaching the top. Equipment can even be the same, with some variations and additions. Ice Climbing is the activity of climbing ice formations including icefalls, frozen waterfalls, rock slabs covered in ice, and cliff sides frozen with water. Ice comes in all formations from soft to hard and the climbing grades differ from that of rock climbing. Mixed climbing is the combination of climbing both rock and ice. Like all roped climbing, beginners should never ice climb alone or attempt to climb any ice they are unsure about. Most people make the transition from rock to ice, but it’s possible to learn on ice, with the proper instruction. When learning a dangerous sport like ice climbing, guides or professional instruction is key, not only for safety, but also to ensure the experience is enjoyable. A good guide book and website resource is also helpful to find suitable climbs. Rock climbers find ice climbing to be more about balance and finesse then strength. People with a background in gymnastics or dance generally find the sport easier to learn as do those who play racquets sports due to being used to the wrist motion necessary to use an ice tool. Necessary equipment includes a helmet, harness, boots, front-point crampons, tools, rope, belay device, headlamp, pack and an ice climbing rack. Warm layers of clothes are also needed. The harness is one of the most important pieces of gear to consider for safety and comfort. Almost any climbing harness will do, but ice-specific options exist. Ice climbing harnesses feature more adjustability to fit over thicker layers, slots to carry screws and holster tools and padding designed to repel moisture. Also, don’t confuse ice tools meant for climbing with ice axes used for mountaineering. Ice tools have a reverse curve shape that makes it easier to pull it out of the ice. For experienced ice climbers who don’t need instruction and have a knowledgeable partner, the Peak to Peak area offers limited options for ice climbing, with the exception of Clear Creek Canyon on the southern end and Rocky Mountain National Park, which offers a number of world-class climbs—including Hidden Falls which features an approximately 75-foot column of ice—on the northern end at Estes Park. Climbable ice can also be found in Boulder Canyon and near the Moffat Tunnel in Rollinsville, but many ice climbers will not find either worth the effort, especially later in the season, which generally runs from January to March depending on conditions. Ice can be particular and ever-changing. Warm temperatures are obviously not good, but so are temperatures that are too cold. Ice climbing in Boulder Canyon dates back decades as water used to flow in from a variety of sources, including leaks in the aqueduct leading from Barker Reservoir in Nederland. Repairs and other changes have left few options today. The canyons popularity with rock climbers and proximity to Boulder make for a busy area.


Clear Creek Canyon provides ice climbing during the winter. Its frozen flows range in difficulty and length perfect for all levels of ability. Guide and outfitters offering ice climbing instruction often use locations in the canyon. Several sites along U.S. 6 between Golden and Black Hawk produce fun ice climbs in a casual setting. All of the climbs can be top-roped or make great places for beginner leads. Its proximity to Denver, however, can lead to crowded routes. Rocky Mountain National park offers dozens of ice-climbing routes that provide a scenic setting, outstanding views and a variety of routes. One of the most popular is at Hidden Falls in the Wild Basin area. The park is also a great location for mixed rock and ice climbing. The Bear Lake Trailhead provides access to several ascents around Loch. Climbs in this area include a mix of rock, snow and ice, with a final push up a hanging ice curtain. Estes Park-based Colorado Mountain School has the longest history of running climbing programs in the park and is a great place to start. The school offers an Introduction to Ice Climbing Course at Rocky Mountain National Park locations on Saturdays through March. It is a perfect one-day introductory course covering all the basics of ice climbing with highly-trained guides. Advanced Ice Climbing, Vertical Ice Climbing and Mixed Climbing courses are also offered in Estes Park. Visit coloradomountainschool.com or call 720-387-8944 for information. No matter what your level of ability, for peace of mind while exploring remote areas or undertaking challenging activities, consider purchasing a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) Card. Visit colorado.gov/pacific/dola/searchand-rescue-fund to learn more and purchase a card. By purchasing a CORSAR card, you contribute to the Search and Rescue Fund, which will reimburse these teams for costs incurred in search and rescues across the State of Colorado. The CORSAR card is available for $3 for a one-year card and $12 for fiveyear card. To learn more about most all climbing areas in the state, visit mountainproject.com.
