A moment of silence for those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11th attacks 21 years ago today. Each year on 9/11 our local firefighters and first responders hike the Manitou Incline. They carry with them a flag with the names of the first responders who lost their lives in the attacks.
This is the 7th year of the event. They touch every step on the Incline to emulate the number of steps of the World Trade Center. Along the way they kneel and have moments of silence at the times when each plane hit and when both towers collapsed.
Old Colorado City just got cooler. That’s thanks to OCC Brewing’s new rooftop patio facing the west side’s mountains. Enjoy your next beer with the best view around.

Devil’s Head Lookout Tower
This Colorado fire station has been in continuous operation for more than a century, and was home to America's first female fire lookout.
DEVIL’S HEAD FIRE LOOKOUT, THE last of the four original Front Range Fire Lookout towers still in continuous use, is over 50 years old and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. On clear days, the view from the structure extends at least 100 miles in every direction.
According to the U.S. Forest Service, in 1907 plans were established for seven principal lookouts along the Front Range of the Rockies between New Mexico and Wyoming. Just four of the planned lookouts were actually built; three in Colorado, including Devil’s Head, and one in Wyoming.
The site has been in continuous use since 1912 and is the last full-time lookout in Colorado. Devils Head Lookout was the first duty station in America to have a female fire lookout. After the United States entered World War I, there were few men available to staff these kinds of towers. In 1919, Helen Dowe, a 30-year-old woman working for the Denver Times applied to the Forest Service. She was hired, and served at the lookout station from 1919 to 1921.
