We just returned from a great weekend in Gunnison,Colo., where I grouse-hunted with Olympic biathletes Lanny and Tracy Barnes and they kicked my tail all over a mountain near Crested Butte. The weekend, courtesy of Katherine Browne and Kirstie Pike’s planning for the first annual Women’s Outdoor Media Association retreat, also included spending a day observing the 3,000-year-old tradition of falconry at work, fly fishing on the Gunnison for rainbows, browns and red salmon and a whole lot of fun. You’ll be reading about it as the photos get downloaded.
But first … since I’m also a travel writer, I like to notice things, and lately, I’ve been noticing signs. In fact, I’ve started a little sign collection.
Here are two of my favorites. The first one is from a kitchen near the neonatal intensive care unit where I visited recently. The second one is from a convenience store restroom near Jefferson, Colo.
