    Annual reunion brings out alumni of all ages

    In 1960, Carbondale Union High School and Basalt High School came together under one roof and became Roaring Fork High School. The arrangement only lasted for two years while Basalt’s facilities were improved, but it left a lasting impression in Carbondale. The high school, now two buildings along, still has the conjoined name, mascot (Rams rather than Bulldogs) and colors (Blue and gold instead of blue and white). read more →

    Near Marble, up rock-and-mud County Road 3 just past the Outward Bound facility, lies the North Lost Trailhead. It is one of the less-travelled entrances into the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, and for good cause. It is hard to spot, for starters. But it is also steep and overgrown and requires at least two substantial creek crossings and does not offer any immediately gratifying views, the kind prized by typical day hikers. read more →
