Top 5 Weekly “Get Real & Social” Calendar Picks

Top 5 Weekly “Get Real & Social” Calendar Picks

Since we spend most of our time outside adventuring, or attending cultural events, we are absolutely miffed when we find out that we have missed something. This is why we manually curate our calendar weekly, scouring through the papers and the internet in search of all events and adding them to our calendar so that all the information is in one place! And now, we are taking a few steps further by committing to posting every Thursday on our blog our Top Weekly Picks so you can get “Real and Social” with us. We also will be announcing our top picks on KSPN FM on Friday mornings.

What this all means is that you want to be sure that your event is on our calendar and that you check in weekly to you too can be in the know of everything happening in our valley. SUBMIT YOUR EVENTS NOW.

The colors are changing early due to the drought but they sure are vibrantly popping out through the haze blowing in from the California fires. Nature keeps giving.

FROM CBS: Because the color change is driven primarily by daylight, the colors are guaranteed change regardless of other factors like drought. But according to Forest Entomologist Dr. Dan West at the Colorado State Forest Service, “the drought could cause colors to peak days earlier than usual and the intensity of the color may be diluted compared to years when precipitation is adequate”. “This is because dry conditions stress aspen stands”, says West.

As of August 27, more than 90% of Colorado is experiencing at least severe drought including the entire Denver metro area. And about 35% of the state is experiencing extreme drought including many mountain areas.
