  • Paddleboarding hits the Rockies

    John (J.B.) Bridenbaugh thought he was too late. His friends said he was too early, but from the looks of it his timing is just right.
    J.B., 54, and his wife Nancy, 50, of Bow Mar, opened Altitude Paddleboards, an unassuming paddleboard shop in downtown Littleton on June 8. Although it’s a relatively new sport to Colorado, the Bridenbaughs knew that they had to do something to help build a paddleboarding community.

This big bird often is seen sitting on the dam or on the sandbar that accumulates at the inlet.
