What's your favorite Colorado State Park?

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will offer free entry to all Colorado state parks on Fresh Air Friday (A.K.A this Friday)! This year marks the seventh-annual Fresh Air Friday event that encourages people to take some time over Thanksgiving weekend to create new outdoor memories and live life outside.

To begin planning for Friday, visit the Colorado state park finder or use the free Colorado Trail Explorer (COTREX) app to discover local parks, trail systems and open spaces. 

With Fresh Air Friday in mind, I'm wondering -- what's your favorite Colorado State Park?

How should recreation be managed along the Gunnison River?

Specifically, how should BLM use the land near the river in Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area? The current proposal includes designating campsites, establishing a reservation system for designated campsites, and providing equitable allocation of commercial use along the Gunnison River corridor as it flows through the D-E NCA.

Public comments must be received by Dec. 15.The public’s input will assist the BLM in the development of the alternatives in the draft environmental assessment.

For more information and to submit public comments, visit 

What are your thoughts on the proposal? Will you be making comments?

What are you up to this weekend?

Are you headed to any public events soon? Seeing any live music or a movie? Or maybe you're just headed outdoors for a hike or an adventure? Either way, leave a comment on this post and let everyone know what you'll be up to (especially if it's something other NABURs could attend too!).

As for me, I'll finally be seeing Dune this Friday!

Some Colorado Outdoors buildings are near completion. What are you expecting out of the new complex?

So far, the only local tenant to sign a lease is Montrose Anglers. Another one of the tenants is a restaurant, but it’s unclear what the restaurant will be.

Monrose Urban Renewal Authority’s expenses, as of Sept. 23, are over $9.8 million. It’s anticipated outstanding expenses are just below $2.5 million and the total anticipated out of pocket expense is $11.5 million.

The MURA board also approved and authorized City of Montrose staff to apply for a Colorado Community Revitalization Grant grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade to cover increased costs, which would help out tenants facing these increased costs.

Read Staff Writer Josue Perez's latest to catch up on all the details of this project. 

What are you expecting out of the new complex? What types of businesses would you like to see there?
