Denver on a Dime

Eating up a long weekend in the Mile High City

By Mina Yamashita
Denver is a big city with the easy-going personality of the mountain states. While it’s not much bigger than Albuquerque in square miles, it’s denser in population and infrastructure. The city is a warren of neighborhoods with names like Capitol Hill, LoDo and Cherry Creek, and I’ve watched them mature over 30-odd years of visiting friends and relatives there.

Gila Cliff Dwellings to reopen tomorrow

By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Jun 13 2012 1:45 PM ]

A few weeks back, our New Mexico-traversing columnist Elizabeth W. Hughes found herself in love with the Gila. She wrote a great piece on its beauty and archaeological wonders, “Travelog: Gila’s monster fan.”

Then, tragically, lightning sparked flames in the Gila National Forest, and by the end of May, the resulting fire had grown to become the largest in our state’s history.

On Monday, more than a third of the fire was contained. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, which Hughes explored during her visit, will reopen tomorrow. The air quality is good, according to the post at New Mexico Fire Information.
