What another journalist has to say about HCN:
"High Country News is a rich resource for those among us who long to hear the voices of the West. The stories and commentaries are always well-written, with strong regional flavor, by knowledgeable professionals, and prepared and presented by editors with high standards."
Barbara Ellis, Denver Post News Editor

Needless to say, we love and appreciate the fine work all of you do to illustrate the importance of our constant commitment to the environment.
Thanks to all of you for illuminating the critical issues of our world, country and the West. Keep up the great work!
Jeff and Lisa,
