"Insight with John Ferrugia: Trumped: Rural Rebellion"
Donald Trump’s election triumph stunned many. But voters in rural counties were not surprised. They found their voice in Trump’s promises to bring back mining and manufacturing jobs. We went to Colorado’s Las Animas County— coal and ranching country —to find out why rural counties carried Trump to victory. It’s a county no one was listening to during the Rural Rebellion.
"Colorado Experience: Galloping Goose"
Take a ride on the Galloping Goose, seven operational railcars that ran through the rugged San Juan mountains from 1931 to 1952. Carrying cargo, mail, and passengers, these “Motors” connected Dolores, Telluride, and Ridgeway with many locations along the Rio Grande Southern Railroad. Discover their mechanical and weather-related adventures, learn how they have been preserved, and why they attract visitors from around the world.
