Letter: Lend a hand or write a check

After we all enjoyed our long weekend in Aspen hiking and mountain biking, I’d like to point out that the Forest Service has endured major budget cuts that impacts our trails. They are literally being loved to death and need you to help care for them. If you have some time, volunteer with the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers. If you have no time but appreciate those who give their time to keep these amazing trails in sustainable, enjoyable and safe shape, please make a donation to help volunteers do the work. This is Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers’ 20th anniversary season, and every time you volunteer on a project you get a chance to win a $3,500 Yeti! You get a great workout, meet some very cool people and at the end of the day, kick back with an icy brew and a tasty dinner! We’ve got projects all summer — check out the website at http://www.rfov.org and do your part to keep our trails amazing.
