Hitching a ride on a ski lift

Maggie Wegrzyn


Farmington resident Randy Granger sent us this photo of him and his friend during a visit to Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.

Our arts and news reporter, Hannah Grover, who is also the office bird enthusiast, initially identified the bird as a Clark's Nutcracker. But then, in a twist, Editor Chris Roberts insisted it's a gray jay. The newsroom consensus is to side with Chris, partly because he signs our timesheets.

Either way, it's an awesome shot from Randy, who may or may not be a Disney prince.
