A Somber Reflection
On Monday, September 30, 2013, a family in our community went for a spectacular autumn Colorado day hike along one of the most popular "easy" trails in the area. Unfortunately, the beautiful day turned into a tragedy when a rock slide killed five family members. Our very small rural mountain community of Buena Vista, has been devastated. I can't even begin to describe the deep sadness I feel for the family and 13 year old, Grace, who survived because her father shielded her body from the rock slide. I am at a loss for words. The tragedy will forever change our community and each individual on some level. Want to read more details? Click here to read a Denver Post story on the tragedy.
