Harriet Freiberger: What’s in a name? 1.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Lynn Jones did not need a map to get where he needed to go in the 350,000 acres of National Forest where he worked. The trees and trails of the Hahn’s Peak District were home. Yes, he had a house on Strawberry Park Road in Steamboat Springs, a building he had built from the bottom up, including the septic system he dug by hand. But the forest filled 31 years of his life while he was a general district assistant in the Routt National Forest Service. The seasons of those years synced with what his job description, defined as work. That work became play for his family on summer weekends, when they gathered pinecones around the Seedhouse guard station. His children learned the two step kick walk their father used, clearing the trail of oversized rocks without even breaking stride. Everyone who had anything to do with the forest knew the slender man in the billed cap. He kept track of them all, the ones who cut timber and where it was going; the ones who came and went with grazing herds of cattle and bands ...

Meet the Bullwinkles: With moose thriving in Steamboat, here's some history and safety tips 5.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Steamboat Springs’ first moose encounter was a startling, violent affair. J.C. Woods and George Kemry were hunting for elk along Burgess Creek in November, 1941, when Woods shot at what he thought was just another large bull elk. The animal fled deeper into the woods, and Kemry was tasked with going into the timber on Storm Mountain to finish the kill. “Much to Kemry’s surprise, he was charged by an infuriated bull moose ...,” the Oak Creek Times reported. Kemry reportedly side-stepped the charging animal and fired another shot to kill it. It was then the two men accidentally made some history. “As far as can be learned, this was the first moose ever to be killed in Colorado,” the Times proclaimed. The head of the moose from that first encounter can still be viewed today on a plaque that hangs inside the entrance of the historic Routt County Courthouse in Steamboat Springs. Wildlife officials speculated at the time that the young moose had wandered into Routt County from Wyoming. The Oak Creek Times ...
