Good Finds in Conifer Colorado

 -There's nothing like a good find.

Unearthing a forgotten or buried treasure (whether it was hidden months or decades ago) is a thrill. I know you know what I mean.

But this year, this year ... I don't have those neighbors AT ALL. I'm talking about the other ones. The awesome ones. The neighbors we all cross our fingers for when the moving van pulls up.

I HAD NO IDEA THAT WAS THERE!

If you're a resident of the towns that make up the Jefferson, Park, and Clear Creek Counties of Colorado, you've probably heard that same phrase from every tourist that crosses your beautiful trails and frequent your shops.
Well.
You, dear Mountain Town Folk, are patient, generous people. When this phrase comes your way, you are known to open your lives and history to those who want to know more...

Introducing Sharon Montgomery

Spring has settled upon Colorado with great aplomb. I thought "Sprinter" would never end, what with 75 degree days battling doily-sized snowflakes. But with one last hail storm, Mother Nature made her choice. Inviting temperatures, beautiful blossoms, and most importantly...The Sun!
