OPINION: Goats can be a forest's best friend
Goats are particularly good at one thing: eating. Unlike a horse or cow that leaves noxious weeds behind, goats eat the whole menu of pesky weeds, bushes and small trees. That means goats can be one of the answers to the growing problem of tinder-dry, highly flammable forests. In Durango, Colorado, former firefighter Jonathan Bartley runs a business called DuranGoats, along with partner Adrian Lacasse, and it’s so popular they’re...

Photo Report: lnside the Inaugural Durango Derby
Durango didn't need Sepp Kuss' Vuelta a España win to earn its stamp on the map as a cycling hotbed, but it certainly gave everyone in the southwestern Colorado town another hero to look up to. Name an American cycling national or world champion, or an Olympian, and it's likely that he or she has ties to Durango (here are a few: Ned Overend, Ruthie Matthes, Todd Wells, Christopher Blevins). The first sanctioned UCI Mountain Bike World Championships was held in Durango in 1990, and since then talent has sprung up like scrub oak beneath the juniper trees.

There really aren’t many options when it comes to hiking Lake Nighthorse but there is one nature walk that should be available to all skill levels.

A galaxy not so far away
A wildly popular art exhibit, which blends Star Wars with contemporary Native American art, is about to land at Fort Lewis College’s Center for Southwest Studies.

The exhibit dived into the influence Star Wars has on present day Indigenous artists, exploring why this particular piece of popular culture resonates so deeply with Native communities, especially those in the Southwest.
