Steve Canyon statue.

That’s a pic of the statue of Steve Canyon that greets you when you enter tiny Idaho Springs, gateway to the Rockies just west of Denver.

You heard me right, it’s a statue of a fictional character, the Air Force pilot made famous in the Sunday comic strips and also a TV show from the 50s. It’s a damned fine statue, and I’ve always like Steve.

Behind you can see the shack for the local radio station, called “The Goat.” It was a blues marathon when we were there on a weekday afternoon, and it sounded terrific.
