Annual Pottery-By-The-Pound Sale in Manitou Open Through January 28th

It’s time for the annual pottery sale in Manitou:

Each January, Commonwheel Artist Co-op members and guest artists from the area clear their inventory and sell beautiful pottery seconds and other art items at discounted prices, with many items are sold by weight.

Commonwheel Artists Co-op is located at 102 Canon Avenue in Manitou Springs, and the sale runs January 5th-28th from 10 AM to 6 PM daily.  They usually have a half-price sale the last few days; I’ll update if I hear info on that.

Hike Paint Mines Interpretive Park

Paint Mines Interpretive Park was on my to-hike list for most of 2017, but I intentionally waited until autumn to take the kids there, knowing that there would be no shade and that it could be quite warm in the summer.  Because of this, I think it could be a great winter hike as long as you go on a day that’s not windy.
