Preservation friends: will anyone be attending the Society for Industrial Archeology 2010 conference in Colorado Springs this June? I will be there talking about the Lake Champlain Bridge, so if you’re thinking about going, let me know! We can do lunch or coffee or any of the spectacular tours. The conference theme is Industry on the Frontier so some of the tours include Pike’s Peak, gold mining towns, steel mills, and the royal gorge. (I’m psyched — I’ve never been to Colorado.) I hope to see some of you there. Thanks!
