  1. Thank you for everything you both do for Colfax! Dane "Colfax" Stephenson

  2. Thanks for the article regarding the motels on Colfax. I had forgotten just how many there were! We had family who managed the El Ricardo at 8700 West Colfax in the 60s.

  3. This is terrific. I did a teacher exchange in 2000-2001 with a teacher from Spain. He and his partner, later husband, two flamboyant gay guys, LOVED Colfax. They spent a fair amount of time cruising there. He will be happy to hear about you.
