Colorado geographically is far away from most of the United States and the remainder of our world. There is little news emanating from Colorado excepting as a place to attend a Bronco game, fly-fish, ski or vacation. However, within the midst of the secluded Colorado Rockies lives The Colorado Girl. This very special tomboy recently returned to Summit County, Colorado after obtaining a liberal arts eastern private college education. She has a strong willed mind for business, church, music and dance, family, and friendships dating to preschool. Every girl in the world has a piece of The Colorado Girl within her. The Colorado Girl Diary I exposes her most inner feelings within a chronological story context. The Colorado Girl Diary I is based in rural Colorado with small town values and culture abounding. The allure of returning home after college is a gravitational pull from family, friends, and the business opportunity with an upstart outdoors gear and ski company, Fitted Bindings.
The Colorado Girl reunites with her first love, the Colorado outdoors with all its year round sporting amenities (fly and ice fishing, kayaking, biking, skiing, board- ing, skating – hockey, snowshoeing, and backpacking). She also loses immense sleep through an enduring and permeating love story with a serendipitous encounter. The Colorado Girl meets and falls in love with a Denver heart surgeon in the Snake River watershed below Arapahoe Baskin Ski Resort. The clean love story is intertwined amidst The Colorado Girl Diary I. The Colorado Girl is emotionally maintained with her ups and downs by her main man, Half-Pipe. Half-Pipe is a puppy who was discovered abandoned in a dumpster by The Colorado Girl within sub-zero weather. Her childhood friends who lived the arts and outdoor sports since birth reunite with a progressive soft rock song and dance ensemble labeled “Down- town.” The twenty something soft rock genre song and dance group enters stardom after the beginnings of a Summit County, Colorado small town garage band.
