Salida Recreation Travelogue

April 26, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


This Month’s Presentation:

Cycling on the Silk Road, presented by Karen Karnuta

The Silk Road from Europe to Asia is the stuff of fantasies. Just the names evoke fascinating history —  Karakoram, Kyrgyzstan.

Learning about this historical period where dangerous trips across Central Asia brought treasures both East and West led Karen to bicycling across the Karakoram Range, the far west of China and the high steppes of Kyrgyzstan.

The scenic beauty, history, and modern culture of the varied people along the route made this an incredible and unique trip. Karen says it was amazing to bicycle through some of the most amazing natural beauty and scenery she has ever seen.

About the Series

The Salida Recreation Travelogue series is a great way to see others’ recreation-related vacations and adventures without ever having to leave Salida.  It is also a great way for those who do the traveling to share their experiences with their community, and to get travel tips and ideas for YOUR next recreation vacation.

We’ve had presentations featuring 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, bicycle, and even unicycle! We have heard about treks to faraway mountains across the globe and hikes to the tops of 14ers in our own backyard.


The cost to attend a travelogue presentation is $5 and a cash bar will be available. For more information, visit Salida Recreation’s website here.
