The Davey Tree Expert Company P.O. Box 5193 Kent, Ohio 44240-5193 Dizzying heights, dangling hundreds of feet above groves of aspen speckled yellow by the oncoming fall. Ice-cold streams and ponds teaming with cutthroat, rainbow, brook and tiger trout. Town facades visually – and virtually – unchanged since the mid-20th century. Such adventures greeted Davey Chairman and retired CEO Karl Warnke in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies as he hiked, fished and relaxed in the mountains outside Colorado Springs. Warnke and his wife, Barb, spent six days experiencing the amenities of The Broadmoor resort, including The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure zip line experience, the Ranch at Emerald Valley horseback riding and hiking, and The Broadmoor's Fly Fishing camp. Warnke said the hiking, in the mountains at elevation, is not for beginners. Mostly, the trip offered a fisherman's paradise. But they also enjoyed the stunning views at Garden of the Gods national landmark, the animals of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and the nostalgia found among historic Colorado towns during their six-day excursion. Warnke said it was their first time visiting the Broadmoor and the surrounding amenities despite many business trips to Colorado during his 40-plus years of service at Davey. "It's a place I would highly recommend to anyone if you like adventures," Warnke said. "My favorite part was the stream fishing. My second favorite, and it's close, was the zip line. The most exhilarating part was when you stepped off the platform. It causes you to pause. I'm someone who finds security being up high in a tree, but these huge trees below in the valleys looked like scrub plants from the zip line. It was like nothing I've ever been on before." Davey Chairman and retired CEO Karl Warnke poses with the Davey Bulletin and a new fishing rod and reel, retirement gifts from the Davey Company board of directors, at a fly fishing camp on the Tarryall River in Colorado. Warnke said all fishing at the rustic camp is guide-led stream fishing. "They are very conscious of the way you land and handle the fish," Warnke said. "It's a managed stream professionally maintained to develop trout habitat." The trip itself also was a gift paid for by contributions made by employees.
