Worldwide Tour of La Plata County
If you’re a County Commissioner, you ought to know where folks live, work, go to school, play, and attend church.
So in the deep days of the pandemic, I embarked on The Worldwide Tour of La Plata County. Map in hand, I drove EVERY county road – all 653 miles (222 miles paved and 431 miles of gravel roads) accompanied by Tootsie the wonder dog. The journey took five weeks and 1,200 miles due to dead-end roads, loops, backtracking and multiple trips to crisscross La Plata County.
The experience was so inspiring that the mission expanded to ebike the city streets and neighborhoods across La Plata County. Between driving and bicycling, the journey across La Plata County covered approximately 1,700 miles… and yet it will never be finished.
So amazed and thankful.
