A Walk to Pikes Peak
April 27–29, 2012
Want to join in? We ask that each participant have a short presentation prepared for the group that is in some way about the area that we are walking through. This can be about the plants we are seeing, the history of a particular spot, geology, or birds that we are hearing, personal experiences of a place, stories about a particular business along the route, visions of the future, traffic problems, tourism, poetry relating to a spot on the route, etcetera. We also ask that you document your presentation in some way so that it can be included in future presentations about this project.
Here is the general route we are taking. We will stray from the path as needed. General timing will be determined as participants join the project.
