The Almanac comes back

The San Juan Almanac–“Your Cattleguard on the Information Superhighway” — is back in business after a year or so of hibernation, with the goal of “establishing a sense of place in the Western San Juan Mountains by affirming the value of public lands and supporting sustainable communities.”

This time around, the Almanac is a quarterly, published on the seasonal solstices and equinoxes.

Its focus remains on environmental issues in the Four Corners area, but it also covers matters like immigrants’ lives, and offers book reviews, short stories, and poetry, too.

The 48-page summer issue had some ragged typography, but offered plenty of good reading from somewhat famous authors like David Peterson and Russell Martin, along with some by-lines that occasionally appear in Colorado Central: Art Goodtimes, Ken Wright, Martha Quillen.

Subscriptions are $10 a year (four issues) from San Juan Almanac, P.O. Box 4480, Durango CO 813024480, and they get email at They’ll probably send you a free copy if you ask.
