Uncompahgre Service Bulletin/FYI

Just a friendly FYI folks, "Uncompahgre" is pronounced "un-kum-pah-gray", with a /g/ to start the last syllable. Guh, guh, guh. I've been hearing far too many people butcher it lately with the always-cringeworthy "un-kum-pah-DRE". There is no /d/, and there is no /d3/. Soft G. Let's keep it clean, people. Thank you, that is all.

Every year we go to Telluride to hike and stuff and couldn't figure it out ourselves. LOL
