JUST SOLD!

44 JJ KELLY RD. IN LYONS

It really was an honor to have been able to represent the Trustee on this Estate Sale. There’s so much more than just the real estate transaction that goes into being entrusted as a loved one's personal representative. Emotions are raw and decisions needs to be made when all you’d rather be doing is grieving and making sense of a loss of a friend or love one.

I’m so happy to have been of value and made the connection I did with my client. Thank You… #BringingYouColorado

Motivational Monday: Embrace the fearless child inside!

by Cory Dudley

Meet 8-year-old Sky. She's from Japan and came to LA to skate and surf :)

She's a self-taught little ripper. She goes big, she's brave, and she skates with the boys cause it pushes her limits.

Not only does Sky put a smile on your face. She's a reminder to follow your dreams- without fear of failure or judgment- to push your limits, fall, and get back up with a smile and know you're better than where you started!

Happy Monday! May this week bring joy and success!

Rocky Mountain National Park Series: Native Fish Populations

by Christa Marsh

Like many waters in the United States, stocking of non-native fish species was common in the late 1800's. And continues in many regions still. However, these non-native species, stocked for sport and food, can alter aquatic landscapes drastically and potentially extirpate native species altogether. In 1936, the National Park Service gave its first formal guidance to discourage non-native stocking and encourage stocking of native fish in Rocky Mountain National Park. Stocking stopped but not before 20 million fish had been stocked in the park's waters between 1886 and 1968. At this time, nearly all of the waters were inhabited by non-natives.

Fish known to native to the area now known as Rocky Mountain National Park are cutthroat trout, suckers and sculpins. Historically, these fish were only found in the lower reaches as waterfalls and cascades served as migration barriers. Due to the cold water temperatures, it is thought that many of the park's waters were originally fishless.

With the assistance of 17 native trout reclamation projects, Rocky's native fish have continued to be restored and many non-natives have been removed. The Colorado River cutthroat trout and the Greenback cutthroat trout are two species of cutthroat native to RMNP waters.

Information about fishing opportunities in Rocky can be found on the park's Fishing page.

Happy Fishing

Motivational Monday: Spread kindness this week!

by Christa Marsh

Sometimes a smile is all it takes to brighten someone's day.

A simple gesture to acknowledge one another keeps us connected. We live in a busy world and so many people feel overwhelmed. It's easy to get lost in our thoughts, what's on our phone, or playing through our ear buds. Unfortunately, we forget about the fellow jogger on the path or the person walking in the grocery aisle that could maybe use a smile, or a hello.

One of my favorite sayings that I always try to remember: 

Meet Claire Lemmel! Claire noticed that people in her San Francisco neighborhood weren't connecting as they walked by each other on the streets. She decided to take action and walk the streets with her smile on a giant poster! 

You're smiling aren't you? :)

The National Park Service staff recently announced plans to start tracking close to 40 moose throughout Rocky Mountain National Park.

The moose presence has increased annually which prompted NPS staff to begin a moose research project. The growing population has presented challenges to efforts in re-establish elk range, as well as aspen and willow communities.

Moose have become prevalent on both sides of the park (East and West) and have been observed in every major drainage.

The collared and tracked moose will help NPS gather information on population size, growth rate, and habitat use; additionally, the moose will be monitored for chronic wasting disease and basic health metrics. The study will continue through 2022.

 

Happy Birthday George Jedenoff! Last July, George turned 100 years young and was able to celebrate that day skiing! George is pretty famous since the 2014 film by Ski Utah "96½ Year Old Skier - George Jedenoff - Words of Wisdom"

He has continued to ski and has continued to inspire people around the world to get out and have fun!

George exercises everyday. From 30 minutes to an hour. It keeps him in shape enough to still ski.

He says motivation is a matter of attitude.

"We're on this earth just a short while. No use trading in your chips too early. Stay in shape, stay motivated!"
