A few of us visited our friends at Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center this week. They offer just about every type of river experience out there in addition to many land based activities. We were interested to see how they are conducting summer operations under COVID-19 guidelines. They appeared to have it dialed in with solid social distancing rules where appropriate along with mask requirements both indoors and on all shuttles. Their shuttle vans are running with a limited capacity and there is a focus on keeping groups and families traveling together for the activities offered by RMOC. Observing how the summer recreation businesses are functioning gives us a preview of what we could see in the winter. Outdoor recreation is extremely important for our economy in Chaffee County and is a great outlet for all of us to maintain our sanity during a crazy time.
