The Colorado State Open Thread is for anyone interested in Colorado, whether you live here, visit here, or have an interest in our square(ish) state. I hope you enjoy the journal and are interested in contributing in the comments below.
The word hyperphagia comes from the Greek term “hyper-” (meaning abundance, excess) and from the term “-phagy” (meaning food). That is, technically it translates as an increase in food intake produced by an increase in appetite (although the cause could be another).
Now that the highest peaks have had their first snowfall of the winter season, this is the time of year when hyperphagia is becoming an epidemic, especially in the high country of Colorado. Usually in our human-centered world, hyperphagia is considered a bad thing and generally something to be avoided. However, in the highland country of Colorado, it is a matter of life and death, but it is something to be admired and partake in, especially by our natural wildlife as they prepare for the long season, but very have little food, unless it is good. prepared for.
I don’t know if you’re practicing hyperphagia or not, but if you don’t, please find other ways to provide a food supply for the winter season. Here in Estes we usually have snow on the ground for 7-8 months of the year. If you do need to pack, please contact me if you are migrating to this area, even if just for a day or two, and I can see what I can do to help you.
