Over 30 electric transmission and distribution structures in Glenwood Canyon have reached their end of life use. A project is under way to replace these outdated power structures that involves helicopters, and lot of coordination between local, state, and federal agencies.

Amy's guest is longtime Roaring Fork Valley resident and historian Larry Rynearson (father of KDNK's own Modern Marty Rynearson), who has written several books about the area, including Legends of the Glenwood Canyon: A history of Colorado's premier river canyon. This book and Colorado's Historic Mountain Passes, with photography by Rick Jones, are available in Carbondale at Bonfire Coffee and the Village Smithy.
