Those are my cousin's old stomping grounds and she's just had a new book, Little Fox's Secret - the Mystery at Bent's Fort, published for children. You can read about the book and the first chapter at marypeacefinley.com.
She was just up for a visit in September and had some interesting tales to tell of her research there and the wonderful people she talked with. She is also very musically inclined, so would have greatly enjoyed your music, Rex, sorry we didn't know about it; I'd've sent her a note.
BTW, you are not a native of Colorado? Generally I've heard all of my Coloradan family members say anything from Call-a-ra-doh to Call-a-ra-dah, but only my Eastern husband says Call-a-ra-deR!**BG**
