The story of Colorado’s sunken ghost town

Located a few miles outside of America's highest incorporated municipality, Alma, you'll find a lake that's full of sunken secrets. During the mining boom of Colorado in the mid-to-late 1800s, a visitor to this spot would have seen a sight quite different than Montgomery Reservoir's glassy blue surface – they would have seen a bustling town. Once home to more than 1,000 residents, complete with 150 cabins, hotels, sawmills, and a dance hall often said to be the largest in the area, a decision was made to flood the structures in the 1890s, burying the scene with the exception of one mill.

This mountain bike helmet has all the bells and whistles, but most importantly it’s comfortable

By now, everyone should know the benefits of wearing a helmet every time you ride. You could be the best cyclist in the world, but it just takes one careless driver on the road or an unseen root on the trail, and you could be over the handlebars in no time. The Specialized Ambush Mountain Bike Helmet has lots of bells and whistles to brag about, but let's start with the most basic – it's comfortable. The helmet is extremely light and ventilated, enough that you soon forget you're even wearing it. But if you do end up in a crash, the extended coverage behind the head and energy-optimized multi-density foam will manage the impact effectively.
