    I know this area extremely well. Not so much about the inner workings of the paper. Feel free to PM.

    Beautiful area, especially when the aspens turn. But about as remote as you can get (Four Corners). That might be an attraction for some.

    Definitely is remote and hard to get to. That part of the state (Durango, north through Silverton and Ouray, west into Telluride, south through Rico and Dolores, back to the east through Cortez and Mancos to Durango) is the best scenery in the state.

    Gorgeous area. Gotta be a snow bunny though.

    Not necessarily. Depends, actually. Some years they get lots of snow. Other years, they don't.

    With all the great skiing nearby, it'd be a shame to live there and not like the snow

    A few years ago I'd have been all over this because I love the city and love the area. I used to be a regular visitor to the KOA campground there during the summer when I was in college.

    DAD-Dee... there's a man hiding behind the tree who offered me a dollar to pull his finger, but it looked like a thumb, only shorter...
