Rocky Mountain News: Camping
"Last year, 17 of us were heading into a back-country hut. By 10 p.m. only seven of us were still going and we had to dig a snow cave within a quarter mile of the hut. Because of the blizzard conditions we couldn't see it. We packed seven into a cave built for two guys," said Volpe, supervisor of the camping and climbing departments at the REI store at 1416 Platte St.
"Typically, winter camping isn't for the faint of heart, but if done correctly you'll probably do pretty good."
No use getting cold feet about winter camping.
Literally, we mean.
"You want double boots, a plastic shell outer and some sort of open cell insert," said Volpe.

"Discovery Weekends" are planned this spring and summer at several New Mexico state parks.
The programs "are geared for individuals and families who seek fun, adventure and education, along with the usual camping, fishing and boating," according to a news release.
It said the three-day events will feature "fun programs, tours, hikes and games presented by park rangers and professional interpreters."
"Participants can catch a butterfly, make an arrowhead, touch a snake's skin or meet a character from the past," said Christy Tafoya, state parks archaeologist.
The first event is set for May 30 to June 1 at Santa Rosa Lake State Park.

You can set your own rules, within legal bounds, for
harvesting deer size and quantity, and within the rules
of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Each person
can hunt and harvest the legal number of deer allowed in that county under state and
federal rules. You need to check current regulations
at the time you are hunting for game. Currently the buck limit is one buck in most if not all of these
counties. Rumor has it that this will be changed
by the time hunting season arrives for 1999. It is
possible we may have doe permits available on some
of the leases for this coming year.

Nick Beams reviews Keith Windschuttle's The Fabrication of Aboriginal History An assault on historical truth Part 1
This connection between the writing of history and contemporary social problems is illustrated by the so-called "History Wars" that have been fought out in Australia during the past decade. They have now reached a new peak of intensity with the recent publication of The Fabrication of Aboriginal History
by Keith Windschuttle.
While the form of the increasingly heated debate is a conflict over the nature and significance of the impact of British colonialism on Australia's indigenous population, its content is about contemporary society.

Southwest Colorado Springs residents lost their last bid Monday to ban open campfires at a new state park that they fear could get out of hand and spread to nearby homes.
The Cheyenne Mountain Neighborhood Association has tried for a year to get only propane cooking allowed at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, slated to open in 2004. Members said the fire pits on 66 camping sites would be too close to their homes and would pose a threat to the surrounding area.
After unsuccessful negotiations with Colorado State Parks, association president John Vasilakis asked the City Council last month to pass a resolution opposing open pits.
Lake Carlos State Park
The colorful show in the sky and its twin image reflected in the lake are a welcome counterpoint to the muted browns and grays of a late fall hike through Lake Carlos State Park.
The branches of the deciduous trees and bushes are bare--their decaying brown, tan and gray leaves are cast about the forest floor, ghosts of their summer brilliance. The prairie grasses wither and release their seeds in the cold north wind, dreaming of the green of spring.
Lake Carlos had yet to freeze over when I visited the state park on the first day of December. On this quiet, crisp day, the big lake is the very definition serenity--calm, clear, tranquil.
REBEL TONIC TOADS
OK, it's in November, so we'll be surfing on
frozen chunks of ice, but surfing is surfing in
San Diego-and camp is camp, so it ought to
be totally sick.
So we get there, and it's all good, but it turns
out we're thinkin' more about surfing than
camping. I mean, the waves are what we're
here for, and camping is like, you know, just
for sleeping. Like, how tough can it be? We're
all waxin' our boards on the beach, and then
they sorta dump these bags of tents and stuff
in front of us and say, "Dudes, go set up your
Set up your tents. That's cool. No
sweat. Set up your tents. We can do that.

Straight Shooting : Winter-time camping has plenty to offer in the Natural State
Thursday, November 6, 2003
The calendar says it’s November, but based on the recent weather, you have to wonder. With temperatures in the high 70s earlier this week, it’s hard to accept the fact that winter is here. It just seems like fall is refusing to release its grip on northwest Arkansas. But hey, who’s complaining?
While November to many means the end of the fishing season and the start of the traditional hunting year, there are a few who simply refuse to give up on fall activities. While many of our local campgrounds called it quits for the season on Oct.
