Beneath Blue Mesa Reservoir Tour

Take a historical tour of the Gunnison River Valley west of town, imagining what was beneath Blue Mesa Reservoir before the dam was built in the early 1960s.

Handouts are provided showing historical maps and pictures. Participants must be capable of walking one mile on a good trail. Bring a day pack containing water, snacks, wind/rain jackets, and sun protection. Cost includes transportation to and from Western campus to hike site, handouts, and an organic sack lunch.
