This Labor Day weekend, take a break, kick back and relax, and remember all the hard working people just like you that broke their backs to make Western Colorado so great.

Western Colorado has seen its fair share of people working under the hot sun, freezing in the cold of Winter, and working through great economies and bad. Take a moment to remember those that built the roads we drive on everyday, those who conducted the trains, piloted the planes, and taught our kids to read.
