Location

The springs here have attracted people for thousands of years.  Utes, Arapahoes and other Native Americans before them enjoyed the waters.  The area has seen teepee villages, ranching,  mining, railroading, water development, and lately, tourism dating from c.1900.

The leader has deep roots in the area.  Weather permtting, we will talk history and visit sites of some of these activities. 

Mostly on trail but we may go off a bit as well.
