Love Is In The Air
With February coming to a close, love is still in the air. There has been a growing trend with couples getting married to escape to far off romantic and exotic destinations. This provides the opportunity for their friends and families to make a vacation of the wedding, rather than a quick weekend where friends and family have little to no time to spend with the bride and groom.

Happy Birthday, America!
Celebrate Our Nation's Independence With Us in Southwestern Colorado!
South Fork starts the celebration off with their town parade on July 3rd. From the banks of the Rio Grande River, you may watch your duck race it's way to the finish in the "Lucky Duck River Run". After the duck race, head on over to Rickle's Area for the 5th Annual Rock The Rio Grande Rodeo.The day concludes with fireworks.
July 3rd & 4th, head on up to Creede for the Day's of '92. This two-day event begins with a plane flying down the canyon signaling the start of the parade and is filled with vendors, a beer garden, and the state mining competition. Head on over to the Mineral County Fairgrounds for a special performance of the Creede Chute Out. This year's fireworks display, on July 4th, will be the largest display fired over Creede. You do not want to miss the Day's of '92.

Last Minute Father's Day Ideas
Father’s Day is JUST around the corner.
The South Fork and Creede areas of southwestern Colorado boast numerous activities for the special man in your life to enjoy.
The Rio Grande River through South Fork and Creede is one of a few rivers in the state with a Gold Medal Waters designation. In a nutshell, this means lots of trout. The Rio (as we love to call it) is sought after by seasoned and novice anglers for her abundance of trout. We have friends in both towns that would love to take you fishing. Contact Wolf Creek Anglers in South Fork or Rio Grande Anglers in Creede for all of your fishing needs.
Perhaps golf is more up your alley. The Rio Grande Club and Resort, located along the Rio Grande River has eighteen holes with majestic views of the San Juan Mountains. Bonus, playing golf at 7500’ above sea level means you’ll ball will travel farther (bragging rights when you return home). Call the clubhouse today to book your tee time(s).
Riding ATV’s into the wilderness in gaining popularity in the area. Follow the 4x4 road up East Willow (USFS Road 502) to the Phoenix Falls trailhead. ATV’s are permitted most of the trail to the falls (and now in designated routes in the City of Creede). Another favorite 4x4 road in the area is to the Wheeler Geologic Area. These are both places that few visit and definitely worth checking out.
