    Some 1,120 riders took to the windy mountain roads of Conifer, Evergreen and Kittredge early Sunday as the inaugural Deer Creek Challenge bike ride got rolling at 5:30 a.m.

    Friday the 13th, an unlucky day for some people, happened to be a lucky day indeed for my friend and fellow birder Warren Roske. Warren saw a northern goshawk on Friday at Evergreen Lake.
