Intriguing stories from our state’s past and present await in the pages of Colorado Life Magazine’s March/April 2018 issue.
The issue leads off with the fascinating saga of the unsinkable Margaret Brown, the Titanic survivor who led an extraordinary life; her tale is full of surprises, starting with her name – she was never actually called Molly during her lifetime. We switch to adventure mode for our next story on a father-son team that set out to ski all 28 Colorado ski areas in a single season.
Whether the spring weather brings snow or sunshine, there’s never a wrong time to enjoy the resorts on Colorado’s Historic Hot Springs Loop, which we explore in a statewide roundup story. And over in Boulder, we check out Celestial Seasonings, Silk soy milk, EVOL burritos and seven more of the delicious treats and drinks that have earned the city the nickname the “Silicon Valley of Food.”
The issue is packed with fun, quick-read stories. In our “Sluice Box” section, we have stories on the Bailey Sasquatch Outpost, an unusual museum that doubles as your one-stop shop for bigfoot paraphernalia; wolves that go for a stroll in Garden of the Gods; and the second life of a church’s beautiful ruins in the San Luis Valley.
In “Colorado Creators,” we bring you interesting anecdotes on a paleontologist who found a second career as a Western Slope landscape painter, a Lyons bear sculptor and an author who weaves stories of madness and mayhem during the gold rush.
