A Sad Farewell

Roads Traveled by Linda L. Osmundson

For the last five years I’ve tried to give readers ideas of places to visit and things to do whether in Colorado or elsewhere. It’s been an honor to work with Lora Gilson, publisher, and Joseph Lekarczyk, editor, of the Lyons Recorder. They allowed me to share trips I personally experienced as well as those I wish to experience. I still have a full bucket list but I’m forced set the bucket aside for a while.
