Takin off her boots for the night.

Saturday, Nov 23rd, Daisy Dukes Bar and Package will be holding a Pajama Party.  With little time left before the holidays, Daisy dukes is putting out a last-ditch effort to allow you to relax before the stress of the holidays.  The party starts at 9 PM, and anyone over the age of 21 is invited to come out have some drinks and hang out.  Pajamas are definitely encouraged but not a must to join in.

Costumes will be rewarded!

Cash and prizes will be awarded to the persons who show up wearing: the funniest PJ’s, the sexiest PJ’s, and the wildest and most colorful PJ’s.  Come hang out, get comfy with some friends, and drink responsibly.

Happy Holidays

As some of you may be leaving for the holiday, I would just like to take a moment to remind you all to drive safely.  The roads can be especially dangerous during the winter.  Take your time and get there safely, your family will appreciate it.  For information on road conditions, you can always dial 5-1-1.

Secrets of Pole Mountain Continued

8 Nov

The Pole Mountain area of the Medicine Bow National Forest has varied and interesting features that are well worth exploring. From incredible rocks to incredible wildlife, this is a place worth visiting. 

Weird Rock Formations,

Vedauwoo is supposed to be an Arapaho word that means “earth born” and is used to denote the fascinating rock formations and outcrops that occur in the southwest corner of the Pole Mountain area.The formations of Sherman granite rise without a prelude from the prairies and forests and leave visitors scratching their heads at the how some of the rock are balanced.  It is well known for its rock climbing although the ratings can be stiff and the cracks unforgiving.

Flora and Fauna,

Pole Mountain is home to a variety of wildlife including but not limited to;

  • Bears
  • Deer
  • Mountains Lions
  • Moose
  • Porcupines

All of these critters inhabit and migrate through the area with the change of seasons. In my opinion the most dangerous animal to encounter would probably be the moose. They are big, they are protective, and they don’t like to share the road.  I have personally observed them trotting down the middle of a dirt road for 15 minutes in front of a vehicle. Their black coat also makes them extremely difficult to see at night.

Protecting these Unique Places

Unfortunately vandalism and reckless use are far too common in the Pole Mountain Area. The old military bunkers are covered in graffiti and there are multiple places where ATV’s have created deep ruts and unsightly areas. Poachers, careless recreational shooters, and some ATV users, detract from the area’s usage and natural beauty. Please leave the area better than when you found it and clean up after yourself. This will do much to preserve these treasures for the next visitor.
