It’s an annual tradition in the Rocky Mountain Region for folks to search for holiday trees in the National Forests.  

KRCC’s Maggie Spencer recently set out into the Pikes Peak Ranger District with fire prevention officer Dawn Sanchez and found the Gurzi’s of Colorado Springs on the hunt for their tree. She brought back this audio postcard.

We're well into the holiday season now, a time filled with food, lights, and gathering with friends and family. But it's also a time where many people give back to their communities.

The holidays are officially here, and while Thanksgiving may have come and gone, there’s still plenty of festivities to be had in the coming months.

And of course, what would the season be without food, and lots of it?

To get you into the holiday spirit and prepared for long, laborious hours in the kitchen, we took a visit to a cooking class hosted by Chris Bailey at the Old River Road Trading Post in Paonia.
