"We Don't Rent Pigs"

Salida always gives me the impression of a "jumping off" spot, where I feel like I'm really "in" Colorado... Today I fully realized the impact of this trip when I was waiting to see a customer who had a map of US on his wall. My eyes naturally gravitated to the areas we had just returned from, and I actually felt a wave of depression start to build in my chest; I have to remind myself that trips like this aren't meant to be permanent, and that the time in the valley is what makes the mountaintop experiences possible.

Here's a great article about Gothic that was published just days after we left; wish we could have stayed and seen this spectacle!!
By God, Woodrow; it's been one hell of a party.
