LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

N ew Mexico and Southern Colorado are home to three shortline railroads, all powered by the coal-burning steam engines of more than 100 years ago. Booking passage on any of them is money well spent on a summertime activity.

Even if you've never been on a horse in your life, give Leon Harrel a few days and he'll have you riding 'em in and cutting 'em out right alongside the professionals.

From sugar packets to navel lint, people collect the most amazing things. And now, thanks to the Web, you can see some of these collections without having to leave the comfort of your keyboard.

Plus, mourning Adam Petty, trouble in River City, freak show musicals, and more.
