RF Valley -Week of 5/23

If the calendar of events is any indication, summer is coming and it’s brand viagra pfizer canada time to get a move on to experience the quick pace of life we here in the Roaring Fork Valley hold so near and dear. From one end to the other there is activity galore afoot. Read on to find something just right for you and your clan this week.

In Glenwood you can get a jump on the weekend and feel good about your intentions by joining in Wulfsohn Open Space Trail Work Evening. Starting at 4 p.m. volunteers are invited help finish building the new single-track trail on the Wulfsohn Open Space. Work continues till dusk and concludes with free food and drink for all volunteers. No pets please. This should be a lovely way to end the day. A most convenient aspect of this is that RFTA has a couple of bus stops  just across the street so you can get a ride, volunteer and ride home in style. On Friday the Glenwood Caverns will start their summer season with an all day party of fun! Enjoy live music and lots of fun with live music and the addition of a brand spanking new 70-foot bungee jump and zip line. Ride Glenwood stops just across the highway from the Cavern gondola so leave the car at home and ride for free! On Saturday take your favorite train lover to the Amtrak train station for a tour of the Glenwood Railroad Museum. Admission is a mere $1 for train lovers over the age of 12. When you’re done there is a slew of restaurants across the street for a delightful lunch. Choose from  Jucy Lucy’s Steakhouse or Glenwood Brew Pub for just a couple of the local favorites. RFTA has conveniently located bus stops on Grande Avenue for easy access to this downtown afternoon of fun!

Heading up valley this weekend, get off the bus in Carbondale on Saturday for the Carbondale Saturday Market. Take the bus to the Carbondale Swimming Pool, walk two blocks East and take a left at 4th street to Crystal River Meats. This appears

to be the first farmer’s style market to hit the streets this season, it will be a great opportunity to get your chomps on some locally grown meat and support valley ranchers. Saturday evening at the Third Street Center offers up the closing night of the Annual Carbondale Kid’s Expo. You can reach the center by getting off the bus at the swimming pool, heading East until you hit third street and then walking about three blocks to the non-profit mecca.

Of course the big up valley news is that there is skiing this weekend! Indeed, it will be Memorial Day weekend and Ajax will be open for business! There will 25 runs open with a 71″ base. The lifts and gondola open at 10 a.m. You can get your regular bus to Rubey Park, get off and experience one of the coolest post ski season events to hit the valley in years! Any way you slice it, it’s going to be a great weekend! Enjoy!
