Next Tuesday the Colorado Mountain Club with hold a presentation by Eric Hunter on a trip I took with him and others to recreate Zeb Pike's 1806 attempt of Pikes Peak. Here's the info:
To commemorate that historic trek and to honor the 200th anniversary of Pike’s attempt, eight local hikers set out last November to retrace the route of Pike’s final days toward that magnificent peak.
Their journey – over three days, 30 miles and an accumulated elevation gain of 10,000 feet to the summit of Pikes Peak – is the topic of the June meeting of CMC’s Pikes Peak Group.
Please join us for this presentation by PPG member Eric Hunter at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at All Souls Unitarian Church, 730 N. Tejon St.
