Salida Rec Travelogue

April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Salida Recreation will present another incredible travelogue presentation at the SteamPlant Theater on Wednesday, April 11.

This month, Alex Drummond will present on the 40th anniversary of the first crossing of Colorado on skis.

Travel with Alex Drummond forty years back in ski history when he and two other men made the first ski crossing of Colorado in a continuous 490-mile line from Durango to the Medicine Bow Range west of Fort Collins in spring 1978.

Hear and see how they traveled on skinny skis, navigated by maps and compass alone, kept their packs ultralight, and enriched their mental adventure by imagining Ice Age nomads following them one day behind.

Alex is a Colorado native who has lived in Salida since 2011 and remains an avid outdoorsman.

Event Details

Doors open at 6:30pm, presentation begins at 7:00pm.
Cost: $5
Cash bar available with beer, wine, and soft drinks.

About Travelogues

Three reasons to LOVE Salida Recreation’s Travelogue Series!

First: It is a great way to see others’ recreation related vacations and adventures without ever having to leave Salida.
Second: It is a great way for those that do the traveling to share their experiences with their community and have bragging rights.
And last but not least: Travelogues are a great way to get travel tips and ideas for YOUR next recreation vacation.

We’ve had presentations featuring recreation vacations from all over the world including Italy, The Grand Canyon, Africa, and Iceland. These travel adventures have been by plane, train, boat, foot, motorcycle, and bicycle. We have heard about treks to faraway mountains across the globe and hikes to the tops of 14ers in our own backyard.
