President Trump on Wednesday pledged to hear out both supporters and opponents of the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska after his son tweeted opposition to it following the completion of an administration environmental impact assessment.

“I would certainly listen to both sides. My son has some very strong opinions and my son is very much of an environmentalist,” Trump told reporters at a press briefing.

Now that the memorial Frank Gehry designed to honor Dwight D. Eisenhower is finished, the acclaimed architect isn’t dwelling on the turmoil and rancor stirred up by those who opposed his design. He sounds like a happy man.

“What an adventure,” Gehry said in a recent phone interview from his office in Los Angeles. “I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.”

For two decades, for as long as Christine Quinlan has taken visitors to a remote, little-known swath in southwest Colorado, she's found the response to be the same.

"It's really one of the most scenic, unique places that we have left in Colorado," she said. "And when we take people in there, they just go quiet. I mean, it's really national park quality in scenic appeal."
