Summit Up 06-14-10: Where we’re loving life and dancing in the rain


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column enamored with our freedom.

It’s Monday in the High Country, and we’re basking in the knowledge that we’re a creature of choice. With infinite options.

Free will is a beautiful thing. To be able to chose to be happy, to pick your home, to think your thoughts, to be amazed. This is our life, and we love it.

We’re hoping everyone out there in Summit Up land will pause, smell the fresh mountain air and enjoy our beautiful home – Summit County.

Get out there and cruise around on your bike, walk your dog, take a jog, give your husband a kiss, tell someone you love them.

We can’t wait to hear what makes you happy! E-mail us at


And we have an Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! from Connie Anderson of Frisco.

She wrote: “A big thanks to the nice Breckenridge couple who noticed I needed help this morning on the recpath (6/1). They fixed my bike chain, then helped me call my husband who picked me up. Fortunately, I was wearing a helmet.”

There’s always a helping hand in our community, and we think this makes Summit County a great place to live. Keep it up!


We also have a notice about John Fielder’s photo presentation at Alma Town Hall on June 25.

Fielder has traveled across Colorado to photograph 50 of the state’s most beautiful, multi-generational working ranches.

These ranches are featured in the book, “Ranches of Colorado,” and will be shared in a multimedia presentation to include more than 250 photographic images.

Fielder will also tell stories about his experiences working with these remarkable ranchers and exploring their ranches.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show will start a half-hour later. Refreshments will be available before and after the show.

Fielder’s books will be for sale too, and there will be an after-party featuring a book signing and questions.

Tickets are available at the door for a suggested donation of $10 for adults. Kids 17 and under can get in free.

This event is a fundraiser for the Continental Divide Land Trust and Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative.

And, boy, it sounds pretty cool. Be there or be square.


We’re out, smelling that nice rain smell. Or maybe basking in the sun.
