  2. Audio tour Summary

    Everyone who visits or lives in Colorado travels the I-70 mountain corridor. This 144 mile stretch of road, from Golden to Glenwood Springs, takes us to the mountains to hike, bike, ski, shop, vacation, and work. It is a vital part of the Colorado lifestyle. But, most people rarely think about how this road impacts the wildlife and wild lands we are traveling to see.

    The Wild I-70 Audio Tour introduces listeners to the wildlife and environments beyond their windshield. Quirky stories, unusual facts, and science help explain how lynx, wolves, humans, and more all use this important movement corridor.

    Introduction music by Chimney Choir, Denver, CO.

    Love the concept! Thanks for the direct actions. I have some suggestions: Nix the hardline “it’s a bison, not a buffalo.” Buffalo is used by some indigenous peoples and should be acknowledged as valid; maybe a distinction between scientific and common names? No gentrification jokes. It is a good metaphor for what happens to the fish, but not a joke. Maybe less jokes in general. At times experts were cut off for bad ones. Overall, I enjoyed it, but think it could have used a different edit.

    I liked the combination information with music and poetry. A cool alternative to the usual static podcasts.

    What a great way to spend the time while waiting in ski traffic! We learned so much.
