Friday Five

Why not do a little websurfing to ease into your Friday? Here are links to five (plus one) local blogs of interest:

The Family Trailhead: The adventures of "a Colorado family that tries to get outside as much as possible."

New Belgium: Yeah, it's about beer and beer stuff. And life.

Epicurean Vegan: Tasty recipes, even for a carnivore like me.

Visionary Healthcare: Dr. Rulon Stacey is CEO of Poudre Valley Health System...who knew he also has time to blog?

Old Firehouse Books and The Matter Bookstore: (I couldn't choose just one.) Great places in old town to pick up some books and a sense of community.

If you have a local blog to recommend, leave a comment!

Mystery Photo:
Last week's photo was of artist Laura Audrey's Foot Bridge on Drake Road between Taft Hill Road and Dunbar Street.















Where in Fort Collins was this week's picture taken?

This looks like it is at the Drake Center in front of the Columbine Cafe.

I had no idea New Belgium had a blog! Very cool. (And I agree with Kerrie re: the photo location)
