Indian Lore & Tradition: Petroglyphs
Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast Petroglyphs are carvings in rock made by ancient peoples who vanished, leaving behind these figures and symbols as silent mysteries for the admiration of all who follow. Early Americans consider petroglyphs sacred testimony of their ancestors. LAZART traces the handwork of America's earliest artisans in metal, freeing the beautiful images from the rocks so they can now pass from hand to hand, and from generation to generation.

Frogs go into suspended animation when it gets cold. Wood frogs are freeze-tolerant and spend winters frozen on land, only to thaw in the spring and begin their breeding process in vernal ponds.

Talk About Cute.... A mother took her 3-year-old daughter to church for the first time. The church lights were lowered, and then the choir came down the aisle, carrying lighted candles.

Outdoor Adventure: Anasazi Indian State Park
This ancient Indian village in the heart of Utah's canyon country was one of the largest Anasazi communities west of the Colorado River. The site is believed to have been occupied from A.D. 1050 to 1200. The village remains largely unexcavated, but many artifacts have been uncovered and are on display in the newly remodeled museum.

Anasazi State Park is in the picturesque town of Boulder on State Route 12. Group and individual picnic areas are available. There is no camping.

Mountain Events Steamboat Springs, Co.
Fall Drives
Leaves are beginning to change colors in Steamboat Springs. There's gold in them hills, along with some brilliant red - gold and red leaves, that is.

Autumn, and the prime time to enjoy Steamboat Springs' colorful fall foliage, is fast approaching. While Mother Nature always keeps everyone guessing as to when the most spectacular colors will appear, the third week in September is usually the best time to see Steamboat's fall colors. Steamboat's Yampa Valley is heavily populated with aspen trees and various ground vegetation, such as scrub oak, making it one of the best areas for color watching in Colorado. Visitors can view Steamboat's colorful leaves in several ways. The area has several scenic drives for those who would like to tour by car, and there are numerous hiking and biking paths for color hunters to choose from. Local outfitters also offer some unique ways to see the colors. Arial views from a glider plane or hot air balloon allow visitors to view large areas of trees at the same time, as well as gain a different perspective. Visitors can also get a close-up view of the leaves by taking a color tour on horseback and riding off like a cowboy into the aspens.

Survival Tip: Max Out Your Medical Kit
This may sound strange, but maxipads are an excellent addition to your backcountry medical kit -- whether you're a woman or not. These pads make excellent bandages when held in place with medical tape. Their absorbency will really help to staunch the flow of blood caused by serious puncture wounds. Bring some along and hopefully you'll never have to use them. Until next time: Be Safe ~ Be Happy!!

How to avoid an episiotomy:
Starting around the 34th week of your pregnancy, you could try daily prenatal massage of the perineum (the area around your vagina). Perineal massage may increase the stretching ability of the area, leading to less need for episiotomy and fewer natural tears. After about a week, you should notice increased flexibility and stretchiness of the area. Of course, it is also important that you let your doctor or midwife know your preferences about avoiding an episiotomy.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

What to do about cradle cap:
Cradle cap looks like a very bad case of dandruff -- you'll see scaly reddish patches on your newborn's scalp. It's an outbreak of seborrheic dermatitis, which can also appear on the face and around the diaper in older babies. It's thought to be a result of hormonal changes that stimulate secretions from the oil glands. Although the condition can look unsightly, it's nothing to worry about, and it's very common. The best strategy to gently remove scales is to rub a mild vegetable oil into your baby's scalp and wash daily with a gentle baby shampoo. It will eventually go away on its own, but consult a pediatrician if the condition persists, worsens, or spreads.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
