I do yes, and blanch the kernals. Then when I cook it, I add cut up peppers and onions and FRY it in butter. In the middle of winter, it's very good. I also leave some on the cob and grill them...in the snow.

I have my winters supply of Olathe Sweet sweet corn in the freezer, along with rainbow trout. Will catch my limit of Salmon this fall and smoke them for winter. Going to try for an Elk too. I'll be set for the Zombie Apocalypse.

And I usually freeze several bags of Palisades Peaches too, but not able to find any this year.

Haven't been there in a while so I walked over to the Ridgway Railroad Museum today:





The Galloping Goose a hybrid train automobile that delivered mail. It runs and you can schedule rides on it:



The jail wagon used in John Wayne's True Grit which was filmed in Ridgway:

Man, sounds like good eatin' at your house. We had excellent sweet corn in PA last year from a local farm less than a mile from our house. $2/dozen. At the end of the season, we did the same thing. We shucked & blanched then wrapped the ears in foil to freeze. We were eating that great corn all winter long.

Today I went to PA-CO-CHU-PUK Park north of town and decided I would hike the Enchanted Mesa trail. VERY steep shelf trail.

Trailhead, just to the south of the guard shack near the dam.


They ain't kidding!


Going UP!


And um...gulp...UP


Looking down on PA-CO-CHU-PUK park, that's Highway 550 on the right.
