Best hikes near the Rocky Mountains

Spring is upon us. The Rocky Mountains and its sub-ranges are beginning to shed snow, colorful wildflowers are in bloom, and hiking trails that have been accessible only to cross-country skis and fat bikes for the past few months are opening up to eager hikers. Spring hiking focuses more on canyons than scrambles and meadows than summits, and these five towns are the place to base yourself for epic spring hikes throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

The West accepts its drought-ridden future, slashes water use

Out West, the future is dry. Amid an unprecedented 19-year drought in the expansive Colorado River Basin — which supplies water to 40 million Americans — seven Western states have acknowledged that the 21st century will only grow drier as temperatures continue to rise. And that means less water in the 1,450-mile Colorado River. On Tuesday, water managers from states including California, Utah, and New Mexico announced a drought plan (formally called a Drought Contingency Plan), which cuts their ...

Want Snow? Try These Winter Activities in Quebec

“I’m sorry folks, but we are unable to land because the runway needs to be cleared off. We’ll be diverting to Montreal until they can get the snow cleared and will try again,” our pilot explained. My trip to Quebec actually started by getting delayed by the snow. I was tired and sad as my chance to stay in the Ice Hotel was slipping away with this blustery bad news, but when you go to a destination specifically for snowy winter activities, you actually kind of like hearing that there is too much...

Judge Halts Trump’s Drilling Plans Over Lack Of Climate Change Consideration

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A judge has blocked oil and gas drilling on almost 500 square miles (1,295 sq. kilometers) in Wyoming and says the government must consider the cumulative climate change impact of leasing broad swaths of U.S. public lands for oil and gas exploration. The order marks the latest in a string of court rulings over the past decade — including one last month in Montana — that have faulted the U.S. for inadequate consideration of greenhouse gas emissions when issuing leases and...

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where the truth cannot be controversial. Let's get to it: *The impact of injuries on this Timberwolves' season is undeniable. Robert Covington hasn't played since late December, a stretch now of 34 games missed. The Wolves went 12-10 when Covington was in the lineup after he had been acquired from the 76ers. They are 15-19 since he last played. Injuries to several point guards at once derailed any momentum the Wolves had a couple months back. Now a...

Hickenlooper: What I'd do for US workers

One of the defining experiences of my life came in the mid-1980s. After working for two years as a geologist in Colorado, I lost my job and my career during that long recession. Struggling to find work, some friends and I decided to start a small business in an undeveloped part of Denver in 1988. Two years later, we built a successful brew pub and eventually opened up over a dozen more around the Midwest. This is the essence of the American Dream -- in the land of opportunity, if you have a good...
