Mexico

Pete McBride

Last month the Colorado River met the sea for the first time in about two decades thanks to what’s called a “pulse flow.” Local photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride was there to see it. He was taking photos for an upcoming article in Outside Magazine. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen spoke with him this week, about the experience.

Tamales are a special kind of cuisine in Mexico. They fall into the category of comfort food and they’re often served for breakfast and dinner. Here, in the Roaring Fork Valley, Mexican families make tamales during special occasions, like birthdays. Recently, a group of Latina and Anglo women gathered in a fragrant kitchen to make hundreds of tamales. It’s a cross-cultural cooking experience and part of the preparation for an event called Fiesta de Tamales in Basalt. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
