“Pete” Laux passed away peacefully after a short illness on February 6, 2015. Pete was an avid hiker, Native Plant Master, and geologist. He was an active trip leader for the Colorado Mountain Club’s Denver Group and State Education Program. Pete led many natural history trips and was a wonderful teacher and leader.   

“Peter’s enthusiasm and skill in sharing the wonders of nature with CMC members and the public was inspiring. The CMC has been enriched with his leadership. I am grateful to have known and worked with him during his 15 years as a member and volunteer,” Brenda Porter, Membership and Adventure Travel Director. 

Peter also volunteered at Roxborough and Castlewood Canyon State Parks and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. He was also an enthusiastic member of the Denver Archeological Society, Schlaraffia, and MEPSI.

A memorial service is being planned for March. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Castlewood Canyon State Park, 2989 South State Highway 83, Franktown, CO, 80116 or to Roxborough State Park, 4751 East Roxborough Drive, Roxborough, CO 80125 with "Scott Fund- Pete Laux" in the memo line.
