Pikes Peak Trip

HUERFANO- Just where in Huerfano County did Zebulon Pike explore 201 years ago? To find out, join the 4-wheel expedition over forested Medano Pass to the Great Sand Dunes National Park Aug. 30 or Aug. 31 (the trip is repeated each day).

    A Pike re-enactor, Charley French of Westcliffe, will tell the story when the modern-day travelers meet at the Gardner Community Center (223 miles west of Walsenburg on Colorado 69) for a pancake breakfast prepared by Steve Olson. And then it’s off on a 20-mile trip, about two hours, crossing Medano Creek. A box lunch is provided at the Sand Dunes.
