Southern Colorado Outfitters
Every year we look forward to venturing into the Weminuche Wilderness area in Southern Colorado. The vegetation is beautiful. Here are just a few species for your viewing. Please enjoy, maybe one day you will wish to see them first hand.

Colorado State Sen. Evie Hudak voted for controversial gun-control measures, and said she was resigning to preserve “these important new laws.”
DENVER — A third Democratic Colorado state senator facing possible recall after voting for gun-control measures said she will resign to avoid a recall election.
The resignation of Sen. Evie Hudak of Denver’s western suburbs came Wednesday, less than a week before opponents planned to turn in petitions seeking her recall. The resignation means Democrats will appoint an interim successor, guaranteeing they’ll keep a one-seat majority in the Senate next session.
Two other Democratic senators were ousted from office in September recalls: former Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs and former Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo. Both were replaced by Republicans.
The recall efforts came after Colorado’s Democratic Legislature and governor this year approved a slate of gun-control measures including ammunition magazine limits and expanded background checks. The limits were the first gun-control measures adopted outside the East Coast after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook shootings in Connecticut that left 20 first-graders and six women dead.
Colorado’s gun-control measures were seen as a national bellwether. Colorado is state where gun ownership is a treasured right, but also the site of two mass shootings that prompted Second Amendment questions. Last summer’s shootings at a movie theater in Aurora and the 1999 Columbine High School shootings were never far from Colorado’s gun debate, with relatives of victims of both massacres frequently appearing at the state Capitol to push for gun-control laws.
