A cover so nice we did it thrice 

For the first time in our history, we’ve decided to feature three separate Independent covers in one week.

A shout out of gratitude to our partners in this year's Summer Guide: First, to the man behind the camera, Robert Mitchell of Sleepless Art Photography, and a co-founder of the local outdoor-based nonprofit UpaDowna. Robert is a self-taught photographer with a passion for all types of art. “I especially love conceptual photography to communicate a story through a single image,” he says.

And then our model, our mascot, our Superhero of the Summer Guide, Kirk Schipke: Kirk moved here in 1998 and enjoys quintessential Colorado Springs summer activities like biking, golfing and hiking and is known for hosting out-of-this-world charitable-donation parties. This summer, you can seek him out on one of the many great pub patios around town.

Sample the fruits of their labor in the following images, and make the most of this summer with the Independent's 2017 Summer Guide.
