Wanting to get outside and enjoy Colorado but don't know where to start? The Denver Channel reported that the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and Colorado Parks and Wildlife released the comprehensive statewide trail map application earlier this month.

The agencies say the Colorado Trail Explorer covers more than 39,000 miles of trails on federal, state, local and private lands with public access.

The app has information for hiking, mountain biking, equestrian riding and motorized recreation.

It was only about 6 months ago that you filled out the longest ballot in Denver history, but it really is time to vote again.

This election, held on May 7 (you can vote as soon as you receive your mail ballot in mid-April), is a municipal election.

That means Denver residents will be voting on Denver things. We’ll be picking a mayor, a clerk and recorder, a city auditor and a whole bunch of City Council members. We also have two initiatives to vote on — one that would decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms and one that would repeal the city’s urban camping ban.

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen a lot of Denverite stories explaining the issues and profiling the candidates. In the interest of saving everyone some site-searching, we’ve condensed

Efforts over that span will focus on the I-270 flyover that will serve as a link to eastbound I-70.

About the Artist:
"Creating portraiture gives me purpose. My intention is to depict the unique appearance of the individual; highlight their distinctive character and beauty. Each person is remarkable, and my portraiture is an attempt to capture and convey that beauty. Painting portraits is my way of connecting with people, connecting with life, and connecting with the rich history of self-identification."
