Hawley was one of thousands of people to enter the month-long contest, which called for an email address and a “like” on the Best in Backyards Facebook page. She was “shocked” when she learned she won the prize, and Kellan, her 3-year-old son, was just ecstatic. “We actually thought it was a joke when we saw the email,” Hawley said. The 8-foot, round trampoline was delivered and installed by Best in Backyards’ factory-trained professionals.

Car No. 25 is listed on both the State Register of Historic Properties and the National Register of Historic Places. The car will be operated by the Denver Tramway Heritage Society, the same group that operates a trolley shuttling fans to Denver Bronco’s game s. “Our mission is to educate and expose people to the history of how Denver grew up on rail,” said Ethan Yazzie-Mintz, vice chairman of the society. “With the revitalization of transit rail in Denver, it’s important for people to know this started decades and even centuries ago.” Future plans call for the Car No. 25 to be housed in a permanent home in the Oak Street Transit Museum located at the Lakewood Oak Street RTD Light Rail Station. “The reason that location was identified was because the car did run along that same line once and we thought that’d be an interesting story to tell,” Nierling said.

In Mount Baldy, home to a small ski area, dozens of mud-covered volunteers pitched in to dig out homes and cars inundated with dirt and rock. The most significant damage was on Goat Hill Road, where a landslide buried some homes up to their roofs. Gloria Flickinger found a river of rock had flowed into her backyard, burying her rear entrance nearly 2 feet in muck.
