This year’s Fall Dinner, held at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, was well-attended and highlighted by a presentation on the Peaks to Plains Trail, a sixty-five-mile trail that will extend from Loveland Pass to the confluence of Clear Creek with the South Platte River. Scot Grossman, project manager for Jeffco Open Space, provided a comprehensive overview of the project with some great slides and commentary. Scot has been working on this project for over five years and is definitely passionate about his work. He also enjoys river rafting, so he can understand the project impact to the boating community. You can find out more about the project here, and CW will be providing comments on the portion of the project that lies within Jefferson County to Scot for consideration and further discussion.
In addition to the presentation, all those who attended enjoyed some delicious food provided by Moe’s BBQ as well as refreshing adult beverages donated by New Belgium Brewing and supplemented by a variety of other beverages donated by CW and attendees. As always, it was great to be with our kayaking friends, share stories and talk about upcoming river trips!
