Moonlight Snowshoe in Hidden Valley

Weather and open skies permitting, we will boot hike or snowshoe through the Hidden Valley and its beautiful sandstone cliffs. The Valley is especially scenic under snow in the moonlight. We will have lots of ridge time, as we look down on the Animas Valley and across to Missionary Ridge. On a clear night you can see Mountain View Crest and the West Needles. Bring an extra warm layer of clothes, and a thermos of something hot to drink, so we can stay out for a while on the ridge top. Extra credit if you bring cookies to share. Meet at the home of Steve Schnarch, 83 Falls Creek Circle. We will car shuttle about a half mile to the trail.
Limit 15, Two well-mannered dogs on approval.

General Meeting and Presentation

Agenda:
5:50-6:20 PM: Social half hour with refreshments.
6:20-7:40 PM: Meeting and presentation.
Presentation title: “Sunsets, suburbs, or the sublime: which west is yours? Reconsidering different visions of our iconic landscape”
Speaker: Judith Reynolds
Presentation summary: Explore different perspectives of the American West with journalist Judith Reynolds. A life-long photographer, Reynolds met Ansel Adams while a student at the University of Michigan. His photographs of the West have inspired her since, and she will discuss them along with other masters such as W. H. Jackson, Jerry Uelsmann, and Richard Misrach. Her goal is to examine different visions and ask members of SO: Which West is Yours?
Speaker bio: Judith Reynolds is an educator and journalist who currently writes for the Durango Herald and has taught art history at Fort Lewis College. Reynolds and her late husband, David, moved to Durango and spent 10 years on a biography of the first scientist to write a monograph of the ruins at Mesa Verde. “Nordenskiold of Mesa Verde” was published in time for the National Parks Centennial in 2006. She regularly speaks in the FLC Life-long Lecture Series, a program she founded and continues to serve.
