‘Robbers’ eating up Roaring Fork Valley’s once-impressive snowpack

The bounty from a decent winter for snow in the Aspen area has disappeared quicker than expected this spring due to thirsty soil and “blow dryer” winds. The snowpack in the Roaring Fork watershed fell from 93% of normal two weeks ago to 60% one week ago and just 44% as Thursday, according to the Basalt-based Roaring Fork Conservancy. A temporary reprieve is expected with precipitation and cooler temperatures forecast for Friday and Saturday.

Cycling hazards

Today I had lunch at the Pitkin County Senior Center. I was dismayed to hear that many seniors are afraid of walking on our bike trails for fear of being knocked down or falling as they jump out of the way of cyclists speeding by them. Some seniors have totally stopped walking on our trails because of the danger. By my reckoning, about 85% of people riding bikes do not ring a bell or otherwise notify people on the trail when they are passing. Cyclists, please slow down and ring a bell or just announce that you are passing.
