Westcliffe is the county and seat and only town in one of the last unspoiled areas in Colorado. Unspoiled because there is no skiiing nearby. People still ranch and farm as they have for generations. A few more glimpses.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
