No man overboard

River trip for veterans helps battle the odds

By Elizabeth Miller
The issues veterans face are — in some ways — as big and unmanageable as the Colorado River running through Cataract Canyon this spring. At up to 58,000 cubic feet per second, it was flipping so many rafts that passengers in a 12-foot paddleboat just had to expect to swim.

An ode to the canine life

Book on Colorado mountain dogs charms

By Elizabeth Miller

By Graham Averill
I rarely drink before noon, but I’m flying and anytime I fly I simply have to have two beers before I board the plane. It has nothing to do with a fear of flying. I have a friend who’s scared of flying. Legitimately scared. She has to have several glasses of chardonnay and an assortment of pharmaceuticals before she can muster up the courage to check her bag, and even then she’s an emotional wreck.

Boulder’s Ice men

Will global warming make this North Pole expedition the last of its kind?

By Elizabeth Miller
Between the northernmost reaches of Canadian soil, at Cape Discovery on Ellesmere Island, and the North Pole, there is a jumble of frozen seawater and ice sheets that break apart and collide together again. It’s like plate tectonics, but these frozen plates are driven by wind, tides and ocean currents.
