You're invited to join us as we camp on the Colorado National Monument and do some guided hiking led by our board vice chair and also an employee at the park. We will be doing a couple short hikes during our trip. Water and toilets are available at the campground. Each site includes a picnic table, charcoal-only grill, and a parking area. Wood fires are not permitted. Each campsite is limited to 7 people, 3 tents and 2 vehicles. Dogs are not recommended since they are not allowed on hiking trails. We have to be "checked out" of our sites by 11 am on Sunday.
Dues paying members of Humanists Doing Good will receive a reduced fee of $8.00 per person to participate in this event. Nonmembers are asked to pay $10 per person. We recommend carpooling to reduce entrance fees and to reduce the number of vehicles at the campsites.
We're planning on doing some campfire spaghetti on Saturday night that everyone can partake in and it looks like Robert and Stacy plan on cooking breakfast burritos on Sunday morning for anyone who would like some.
At this point, it looks like some of us will be carpooling to the campground at 10:00 am from the Fruita side (Velvet, Jesse, Stacy & Robert so far). We'll get some things set up at the site once we arrive and before it gets even hotter. We will meet our hiking guide at the campground around 1:00 pm and from there we will head out on a series of short hikes.
