Blacksmith and metal artist Ira Houseweart  just completed a new handicap accessible ramp at the Paonia River Park on the North Fork of the Gunnison River. The project was commissioned and funded by the Western Slope Conservation Center, the stewards of the park.  Feast your eyes on this functional artistry and visit the park to walk upon this beautiful new landmark in our valley!
