Hike and Write Event

Join the Sierra Club for a fun combination of writing and hiking as we enjoy one of the last days of August.  The hiking section of our day will consist of an easy 3 mile hike, and we will break for two writing/sharing sessions during the day.  The writing will consist of haiku and descriptive prose.  I, Colleen Finnerty, shall be your fearless Sierra Club leader and contact person for this outing ([masked];[masked]), but our guide for the outing will be Dr. Richard F. Fleck. Dr. Fleck is a former seasonal park ranger, naturalist and professor of American literature and environmental writing, author of a number of books including latest Desert Rims to Mountains High (Portland: West Winds Press, September 4, 2013).

The outing takes place in the lovely Mount Falcon Park (my personal favorite JeffCo open space).  You can find information about the park, including a printable pdf map, here: http://jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/mount-falcon-park/

Please bring a paper tablet with a pen or pencil, sunscreen, water and, as always, the ten essentials.  http://trails.sierraclub.org/know-how/before-you-go/ten_essentials.html

Please contact me with any questions and keep in mind that I will not be available after 7am the day of the outing because I do not own a cell phone.  Plan accordingly.  If you would like to carpool, please leave a message on this page with your location so that other people can contact you to arrange pickup time/place. 

This is the first outing which is sponsored by the new Denver Metro Network of the Sierra Club, so please show your support and sign up.

    This was a wonderful event and everyone created excellent original work while also getting to be outside. That's what I call a win/win!
