Note to readers: The bird in the photo is one that I observed at the high point of a recent hike on the First Flatiron here in Boulder… Also, I’ve been working on a number of things behind the scenes here, some of them technical. Expect a new focus and page launch coming here in January, which will be my feeble attempt to keep up with our changing times in media. Stay tuned.
