I struggle with asking for help.  If you talk to any of my friends or family, you’ll receive a resounding “True!”

Dear Editor:

Outdoor recreation is one of the fastest (if not the fastest) growing industries in Colorado. Whether it is hunting and fishing, rafting or paddling, or hiking and biking, people are choosing to visit and relocate here thanks to our mountains, rivers and wildlife.
