The scar turns green

       The former “Scar on the Mountain” – Castle Concrete’s quarry of many years (background) – is nearly as green this summer as Rock Ledge Ranch (foreground). Now a reclamation habitat, the former scar will be the destination of a hiking event including breakfast and music Saturday, Sept. 18 at 8 a.m. Pre-registration is necessary at www.coloradomtnreclamation.com.
