Ben Harper will join with Obama for America and the Colorado Campaign for Change to host early vote events in Boulder and Denver this Saturday.  He'll play a few songs in Denver at Civic Center Park at 12pm and again at UC Boulder's Mary Rippon Theatre at 2pm.  Both events are free and open to the public.

I woke up in Grand Teton National Park to the sounds of crazy mountain birds, and was glad not to have been eaten by bears or wolves during the night. The festival itself provides no camping but there is plenty to be found in the park and in the surrounding forests. On the drive to the festival grounds, I saw a moose, and nearly 30 people taking a picture of it. There was a lot to look forward to, and anyway I've seen moose before, so I didn't stop until I hit Teton Village.
