This week on Curated, we take a tour of Owl Farm, longtime home of the late gonzo writer Hunter S. Thompson, in Woody Creek, Colorado. His widow Anita Thompson shares her plans to turn his home into a museum, and his friends recall the time he ran for Pitkin County Sheriff in 1970. 

Jenny Stuber rode on a plane for the first time to come visit her dad in Aspen. It wasn’t just any private plane, it was John Denver’s private plane.

Some of the heavy hitters in the marijuana community celebrated its legalization in Colorado at an event near Woody Creek. The group NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, held a cookout over the weekend at Owl Farm, Hunter S. Thompson’s old homestead. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen was there and filed this report.
