New Cattle Crossing 5K & Family Fun Trek

Parker Parks and Recreation added a brand new event to their run series, and it’s the perfect way to kick off the summer! The Cattle Crossing 5K & Family Fun Trek will be one of the most scenic events in the popular run series. The course meanders through Idyllwilde past numerous feeder trails and right alongside the creek. Runners and walkers alike may spot some winged or four legged spectators along the trail; so be on the look-out for birds, deer or even cattle along the course.
Race day is Saturday, June 3rd, beginning at Tallman Meadow Park. 5K Pre-registration (until May 31st at noon) is $25; race day registration is $35. The Family Fun Trek pre-registration is $15; race day registration is $25.
The 5K is a professionally timed, sanctioned event. The Family Fun Trek is roughly a mile of laid-back, “outdoorsy fun.” All participants will receive a commemorative item and a delicious post-race pancake breakfast plus a chance to win prizes! Top male and female finishers as well as the top three finishers in 7 age categories will be awarded. The FREE Huntington Learning Center Kids’ Dash for runners under 8 follows the race, no registration necessary. Packet pick up is Friday, June 2nd from 5-7pm at RNK Running and Walking (13019 S. Parker Rd) or at the event beginning at 7am. The event will be held, rain, snow or shine.

Minturn Anglers

In the classic movie, “A River Runs Through It”, Norman (the narrator of the film) states, “In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing.” The dedicated guides and anglers from Minturn Anglers would most likely relate to that statement. In no way is Minturn Anglers a mass production of getaways for the busy tourist season. They are passionate, knowledgeable and friendly guides who are eager to share their love and their knowledge of the sport with guests. With access to over 500 miles of waters, including lakes, mountain streams, rivers and private waters, Minturn Anglers pride themselves on creating the perfect experience for fishermen (women or children) from novices to experts. Go online to book anything from kids fishing camps, to ½ day local and full day floats; “cast and blast” duck shooting and fly fishing trips or excursions that include fishing and horseback riding. You can even book “fly in” trips for up to ten people. Get out and see Colorado from a fisherman’s point of view this summer.

Did the photo from last month’s clue ring a bell?  It was Freenotes Harmony Park at the PACE Center!  If you haven’t seen it, Harmony Park is tucked at the far end of the PACE Center.  Specially designed, interactive art sculptures and percussion instruments are out for everyone who experiments with them to experience making music.  All the instruments serve as educational tools that spark imagination and allow all ages and abilities to create melodies.  The eight instruments at Harmony Park were the first public art exhibit to be approved by the “Art in Public Places Committee” for the PACE Center.
