Letter: Thanks for the outdoors

Thanks for the outdoors

I would like to send a big thank-you to the Deane family and the T-Lazy-7 crew for their outstanding community service in continuing to provide a wonderful outdoor experience for so many of us to enjoy. Not only do they (at their expense) groom and maintain Maroon Creek Road all winter long, but they are a shining example of how to share trails and outdoor activities. If you’ve been up there anytime in the past several years, you’ll remember how courteous the guides are as they pass you during snowmobile tours. These men and women slow way down, take special note if you have an animal with you and pass the information along to the entire group so that everyone passes safely by. With so many areas now becoming busier every year with mixed uses (i.e., gas-powered vs. human-powered activities), it is so nice to see such a professional operation committed to sharing trails and being true stewards of the land. If you haven’t been up there in a while, check out their local specials in the paper and go have some fun. Otherwise, get your skis, your fat bike or just your own two feet and go check out our beautiful backyard in all of its white winter splendor!
