SHAFFERS CROSSING is 35 miles southwest of DENVER at the junction where Highway 285 continues its path toward  KENOSHA PASS on the way to FAIRPLAY.  A turn to the south (left) leads to a canyon that extends nine miles to the small town of PINE GROVE.  All of the stories in The Elk Creek Chronicles are rooted in happenings along what at first might appear to be a stream of little consequence.   Nothing could be further from the truth—Elk Creek has been teeming with life for a good long time.
