  • Early wildflowers, tall grass a...

    On a brief ride around the Evergreen area last week, I was surprised to see so many wildflowers blooming. Many seemed a bit earlier than usual. I believe this is due to the exceptionally warm weather and rain in early June.

    Late June had very little rain, but the Fourth of July brought a late-afternoon torrential shower, so it is once more hot and humid. This is not my favorite weather as it leaves me feeling hot, sticky and short of breath.

  • Bald eagles near Evergreen Lake...

    Everyone in Evergreen has been excited about the two bald eagles that have been hanging out in a dead tree near Evergreen Lake for the past week. I have had several people call me, and others have brought me photographs of the birds. They are apparently two adult bald eagles, easily recognized by their size, dark bodies, white head and tail.

    Below my window is the roof of two buildings and two large paved parking lots that were scraped flat out of the hillside. Because of our hard rains, these are drained away to prevent puddling.

  • Forest Service: Closing areas to...

    A plan to close a 400,000-acre zone of land in the foothills to recreational shooting would help the U.S. Forest Service manage the sport the way it does other recreation on public lands, according to an official.

  • Evergreen graduate Peterson...

    Kyle Peterson didn’t play the Old Course at St. Andrews — host of a record 28 Open Championships, also known as the British Open here in the United States — but it was still St. Andrews.
    “It was honestly a learning experience. Completely different golf,” Peterson said. “I’m really glad that I got exposed to it at such a young age and got to learn a different way to play golf.”

  • Funds still needed for EHS press...

    What do high school football and an English classroom have in common? If it’s Evergreen High School, as it currently stands, the classroom is where assistant coaches on the opposing team communicate with the coaches on the field. It’s not an ideal situation, but maybe that’s about to change.

    Cowboys and cowgirls alike ventured to the 49th annual Evergreen Rodeo on
    Father’s Day weekend. Competitors — both local and from as far away as Honolulu, Hawaii — tried their hand to tame the bulls, ride the horses and wrestle down the steers for two days at the El Pinal Rodeo Arena, now the Esco Construction Arena.

    BACK IN THE SADDLE

  • Meadows come alive with...

    June is such an amazing month. Everything is making record growth and suddenly seems so full.

    The valleys that were bare all winter are now full of green willow leaves. Aspen are in full leaf; suddenly everything appears over-stuffed. It is a pleasure to see the spring green, which makes everything come alive.
