A 73 foot, 74 year old Engelmann Spruce from Colorado is heading to the U.S. Capitol for Christmas. The tree was cut Friday from the Ripple Creek Lodge about 40 miles east of Meeker on the western slope.
This will be the third time Colorado has provided the Capitol Christmas Tree since the tradition began.
As winter weather approaches Colorado it’s time to consider taking your gardening indoors. KUNC’s GardenerTom Throgmorton says backyard greenhouses are a great option for those committed to gardening all year long.
