I just got back today from a short trip to Breckenridge to visit family. A cousin was getting married and I attended the ceremony. It was just beautiful up there and the marriage ceremony was lovely. Although it was sad to see the devastation of the beetle kill that has ravaged the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Colorado. Dad said it hasn't reached New Mexico yet, but will likely get there. It is a testament to the effects of too warm winters and not allowing fires to burn. The other thing that struck me was the vast amount of people. Mountain towns are no longer mountain towns, they are cities right in the middle of what was once a pristine wild wilderness that is quickly disappearing. I can't help but hope that Mother Nature does a course correction soon. The world needs it.
