Baker's westernmost residents live here

this encampment is as far west as anyone resides in Baker at the moment; it is located on the hill between Phil Milstein Park and the 6th Ave to southbound I-25 on-ramp in the far northwestern corner of the Baker Neighborhood; this spot is more or less aligned with 5th Ave., so it is not Baker's northernmost residence

8th annual Platte River Half Marathon to be held 11 April

the Platte River Half Marathon will begin in downtown Littleton at 9 a.m. on 11 April and proceed up the multi-use trail on the South Platte River to the Buckhorn Exchange at 10th & Osage; the trail will be open to other users during the marathon, so Phil Milstein Park would be an interesting spot from which to watch the race

if any Baker residents are competing, let us know so we can cheer you on!
