Outdoors Near Your Backdoor: Get Outside and Take a

By Deborah Huth Price Berthoud Recorder Once, while on a bicycle ride with my husband, I asked him which way to move the lever to go to a lower speed. Instead, he gave me a complete explanation of how the gear mechanism works. This was not surprising, coming from an engineer, but I just wanted to take a ride.

Chaco Canyon Echoes With Mysteries

By Jamie Folsom Berthoud Recorder The inhabitants of Chaco Canyon obviously paid attention to the sky. And although it’s not clear anyone actually resided in the 30 central buildings, the structures are all oriented to the patterns and events of the sun and moon –– equinoxes and eclipses, among others. This hundreds-of-years-old village stands as a monument to the human pursuit of information, both to those who once built Chaco, and to those who seek answers about the ... Full Story
