Back in the '70s, the Mountain Gazette
was required reading for all the people flocking to Colorado, eager for a groovy Rocky Mountain high. Twenty years after its death, the magazine was revived last year by longtime journalists John Fayhee and Curtis Robinson. The Mountain Gazette
's endearing mix of crunchy adventure stories and oddball attitude emerged from the hiatus relatively unscathed, and the free bi-monthly earned first place this year in the Utne Reader
's annual alternative-press awards.
