Apologies and Anomalies

First of all to my readers, I apologize – I’m having some trouble adding the fantastic new footage of Buttermilk fissures to the main ButtermilkIsAlive website. Word to the wise, if you’re looking to have some internet work done,  keep on looking when you come across Rocky Mountain Graphic Design Co. They are very affordable but thats about it.

Second, I’ve been getting a bunch of feedback about the new footage I’ve posted and how too many people agree that the mountain “mouth” is supernatural, not scientific. I would remind my readers that such mass scale phenomena has happened in the past and is always misconstrued. One such great example is the legend of the Devil of Devonshire. Check this link to learn a bit more about it, and see how the misinterpretations of Buttermilk incidents are just part of a long legacy of the common masses calling turning Anomaly into Legend.

I think this Buttermilk-zealot is referring to a harsh comment made by “Nick” on December 23. Here in the forum, why don’t we spare ourselves from postings like this by keeping the comments non-personal and constructive? A part of me is exceedingly irritated by misguided myth-makers like this, and part of me feels like this young man is a rare breed, one sandwich shy of a picnic. How long must it have taken him to make skier? And he has the nerve to call me crazy.

Well Rusty, I’ll let my readers judge for themselves who the crazy one is.

more activity

This morning I witnessed an amazing sunrise on the mountain which inspired me for the day. There were more people out earlier than before. I am hopeful that as a counter balance to all the noise and activity, more kids will come out on the mountain on their own and breathe in the air and have a private experience on Buttermilk.

“migration”

I APOLOGIZE BUT ALL POSTS PRE-DATING THE MIGRATION ON DECEMBER 1 WILL NOT BE IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE.

Any members in need of a particular post with the date should email me directly – I have a printout archive of all posting since the forum’s inception and would be happy to track it down for you.
