construction equipment down on the Arkansas River Trail as I passed over the Union Street bridge. My first thought, was that they had started construction on the new trailhead below 4th Street, so I wanted to go take a look. No easy task as you can see from the photo (left). When I got down there, I realized that the river flow had been cut back to nearly a trickle, so that the equipment could start working on the HUGE CRACK in the levee that protects Pueblo from floods. OK, we have a few months before spring runoff starts, but just in case, I bring my life jacket every time I go out to the bar in the Union District in June.
