    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Salida Rainbow Trees

    Sadly, local dullards knocked over and pulverized all of them eventually. They were really a refreshing contrast to the muted colors of the terrain. I heard some criticism from non-retards, that the natural environment did not need an artistic installation to be beautiful, but all were close to town in a heavily civilized area, and there are vast, VAST areas of piñon/juniper forest all over CO that are untouched, pristine, and unseen.

    Bummer. Those were a nice addition to that trail system.
