Long story short 

When you Google "Summer 2010," the second thing to pop up (after a Wiki page, naturally) is a link to fashiontrendsetter.com. Here, you find that at a big meeting not too long ago, "stylists and industrialists agreed that the market demands color."

"Stars of the season: the greens. Guests of honor: nuances of red and soft and refined pinks, mauves and neutrals in full evolution."

I know my mauves have long been waiting to evolve. Yours probably have, too. This is big.

So, no messing around this summer. When you, your greens and your "guests of honor" leave the house, you must have the perfect destination in mind.

That's where our Summer Guide (starting here) comes in. We've compiled details on nearly 100 events planned for the Pikes Peak region. There are stories on the best music festivals coming our way — next week's MeadowGrass is just the start — and the mostly contemptible movies that will try to lure us indoors.

But this year, you'll find some oft-overlooked ideas: museums, trails and other attractions where you'll find both bliss and breathing room. Because we believe that even if you've been here a while, there remain treasures just waiting to be uncovered.

So put on the sunblock and try something new. 'Tis the season, after all, for full evolution.
