In this, the final installment of our 3-part journey through the outer edges of the KRCC listening area, we meet the owner of drive-in movie theater hotel and learn the value of a well-run ditch. (You can watch Part I HERE , and Part II is HERE).
I really enjoyed watching all three episodes. Great job guys! I can’t wait to check out the Movie Manor Drive In on my next trip.
Thank you for these entertaining and informative tours. Will you please do the rest of the state, chunk by chunk? Seriously! Introduce us to additional interesting Colorado places, men – and women!
Awesome! Keep up the great work guys! So much wonderful stuff to see out there if people are only willing to veer off the 4-lane blacktop and slow down a bit. Thanks for peering into a little bit of our Colorado country culture and sharing the experience with us all.
What species of bat is that pictured in your story? It looks a little like a Little Brown Bat (yes, that is a species if you are not aware of bat names) but I know there are several similar looking species.
Know that you gave that elk ranch publicity you should be fair and do a story on the impacts that elk ranches have
Thanks for your comment. Not sure about the bat. You’d probably know better than we. It didn’t seem too healthy–was flapping around us in broad daylight, but…???
By the logic of fairness we’d also have to do stories on chain movie theaters and corporate irrigation techniques. Sorry we can’t do it all.
This is my favourite segment – will be asking Blake about a trip to the motel with the cinema. I’ve never seen a drive-in film and this seems a perfect way to go, maybe after a day in the Dunes.
Also really enjoyed the piece on irrigation ditches. Many thanks for this, what a treat!
Someday you should check out Monte Vista Wildlife refuge. Awesome, surprising gathering of water birds in the middle of the desert valley. On the way there, the local road passes Amish property (signs to watch for carriages). The local Amish make amazing pies that are available at a restaurant (Blue Creek Lodge, I think) just east of Creede. The restaurant is filled with John Wayne paraphernalia. So many cool places to see off the beaten track. Thank you for your interesting stories!
