A day after Denver police evicted 12 homeless women and their children from a vacant, federally owned house, Housing and Urban Development officials agreed to lease 55 vacant homes for $1 annually to shelters. The agreement was worked out with shelter sponsors after HUD, a federal department, had police oust the squatters who broke into a $73,400, HUD-owned home over the weekend and refused to leave. The squatters were protesting the number of repossessed homes that are left vacant.

In the evening, as the vacationing skiers descend from the slopes and head back to their luxury hotels and chalets, as the shoppers leave the expensive boutiques, construction worker Tim Travelsted finishes his day among the million-dollar condos here and heads "down valley" to Glenwood Springs, a 40-mile drive to the cave that he calls home. Not far from Travelsted's cave, down by the Colorado River, Skip Merlo, 30, will be hunkering down for the evening in a makeshift plastic lean-to.

"I never thought I would get anything so lovely," Spalding said of her 370-square-foot studio apartment with its high ceiling, efficiency kitchen and ocean view.
