NEDERLAND — In its heyday during the 1970s and early ’80s, Caribou Ranch — tucked in a lush valley three miles north of this mountain town — was the “creative monastery” for some of the biggest names in the music business.

Songs such as “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Shining Star” and “New York State of Mind” were penned in Caribou’s cabins and on the ranch’s grounds.

More than 150 artists — including John Lennon, Michael Jackson and The Beach Boys — would record at Caribou’s state-of-the-art music studio before a fire silenced the barn-based recording operation on a cold day in March of ’85.

A quarter-century later, Caribou is on the brink of potentially the biggest change to come to the Peak to Peak Highway property since 1971, when James Guercio, a young and idealistic Chicago music producer, settled here to establish one of the first destination recording studios.

Efforts are underway to reopen the studio and vault Caribou to “Sundance” status read more…

Bloody Ludlow — Long Buried in Myth and Neglect, the Story of Colorado’s Deadly Coal War Is Worth Remembering

It’s a lonely place now, a forlorn and mostly forgotten spot a half-mile west of the interstate and twelve miles north of Trinidad. Flanked by cottonwoods, surrounded by windswept prairie studded with piñon and tumbleweeds, it has an unfinished look, like a roadside attraction somebody started to build and then abandoned.
