Chapel of the Interlude is a fitting name for a church in the middle of a narrow, winding canyon. In 1969, benefactors built the intimate wood-paneled structure in Drake, Colorado to provide an oasis next U.S. 34 — one of the busiest roads leading to Rocky Mountain National Park.
In 2013, a raging river between Estes Park and Loveland Colorado deposited mud, sticks and debris inside the chapel's Fellowship Hall — a casualty of the state's historic floods. The structure has been restored, but as the aging members of the small mountain church return, the biggest challenge lies ahead.
Colorado is known worldwide for incredible skiing on its magnificent mountains… but the resort experience also comes with long lines and uber-expensive lift tickets. Back in the 1970s you could have simply headed to Greeley.
Instead of dodging moguls, you could have been dodging tumbleweeds at Sharktooth Ski Area – located on the plains east of the Rockies, perched atop a 150-foot bluff overlooking the Poudre River.
In Northeastern Colorado, farmers growing food like corn and potatoes depend for water on a giant, underground reservoir. Called the Ogallala, or High Plains aquifer, this water source spreads across eight high plains states like a giant, underground lake.
In times of drought, farmers who use the aquifer for water take more of it. A report from the U.S. Geological Survey, published December 16, shows the 2012 drought significantly diminished the Ogallala's water.
