If you missed Western Skies this past weekend, then you missed the grand finale of our summer road trip series–a long radio piece Craig Richardson and I put together about a 3-day road trip in which we met some of our amazing neighbors in the outer reaches of the KRCC listening area. We’ve broken the piece up into a 3-part series and added photos. Here’s part 1.

Stay tuned tomorrow and Thursday for parts 2 and 3.
