Memories & Milestones

Post IndependentGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Monique Vidal is the Glenwood Springs Community Center’s instructor of the month for September. For six years Monique has instructed indoor cycling. Monique’s passion for cycling began after she tore her ACL helicopter skiing in Valdez, Alaska. She began cycling regularly after surgery to help rehabilitate her knee and grew to love the sport. Monique has enjoyed a career practicing interior design but loves sharing cycling with the great people in our community. Whether the goal of the members in her classes is general fitness, or preparing for a cycling event or triathlon, Monique is thrilled to take part in helping that member achieve their fitness goals. In addition to cycling, Monique has a passion for skiing, kayaking and hiking. Monique has resided in the Roaring Fork Valley for 18 years and lives with her daughter.

Roaring Fork Conservancy organized the removal of nearly half a mile of barbed wire fence on the Grange Loadout Conservation Easement near Redstone on Aug. 24 as a part of Colorado Land Appreciation Week. Participants included the U.S. Forest Service, Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Redstone residents. Removing the fence allows for safe passage not only through the property, but also prevents congestion as elk attempt to cross the highway.

Congratulations to Logan Gross, son of Brandon and Terena Gross of Silt, for taking first in state in his 6-7 age group at the Colorado Rockies Baseball Skills Challenge Aug. 18 at the Coca-Cola All Star Stadium in Lakewood. Logan was recognized at the Colorado Rockies game that night behind home plate at Coors Field. Logan then was able to watch them play against the Marlins. We are so proud and we love you! All your family
