Weekend fun at Mueller

In today's Gazette we gave you a list of activities planned Saturday at Mueller State Park - off Highway 67 between Cripple Creek and Divide. I'll repeat them here, in case you missed them:
A two-hour, moderate trip to School Pond begins at 10 a.m.
Check out a hands-on display of skulls, hides, pelts, teeth and the like 1-3 p.m. at Grouse Mountain Trailhead.
Explore forests, meadows, valleys and groves of aspens at 2 p.m. at the Outlook Ridge Trailhead (three-hour hike).
Here are a few more reasons to stop by the park.

7 p.m. -- "Mountain Men"
Leave the present and travel back 150 years with historian Jim Phillips. Hear entertaining and amusing stories about the early fur trade, the mountain man lifestyle and other cultures of the early 1800s.

Visit the Osborn Homestead and travel back in time via vintage photographs. Presented by volunteer naturalist Jan Seltman.
Meet at Black Bear Trailhead

1 p.m. -- Birds of Prey
