After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon, though areas in higher elevations could see 1-2". The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
In the past decade the number of hikers ascending Colorado's 14ers has tripled, and the number keeps rising.
Last year, a half million people conquered at least one
14,000 foot peak. Land managers forecast that figure will rise
another ten percent within the next year.

are wearing out the infrastructure. At the same time usage is increasing, the federal agencies that manage mountain trials are dealing with budget cuts.
