They Wrote it Here: A Field Trip to Sites in Rocky Described by Historical Writers

Unnamed Organizer
January 15, 2013
Rocky Mountain Nature Association Field Seminar & Conference Center
1895 Fall River Road, Estes Park, CO, 80517, United States

How have various writers described particular sites in the Park? From flowery Victorian prose to popular fiction to memoir filtered by the author’s eyes, each writer has captured the Park in a unique way. We will visit various locations and view-sites described by Isabella Bird, James Michener, Milton Estes, Albert Sprague, Enos Mills, William Allen White and others in journals, books and letters.  We’ll read their descriptions, discuss them, then write a piece or journal entry of our own describing this place today or reacting to the historical passage. How has this site changed? In what ways is it the same? How do I feel about it? Be ready for a fun day exploring the actual places in the Park that have influenced literature! (Note: We may not be able to visit a site by every writer listed.) This seminar is NOT limited to writers. Lovers of history and books are welcome too! (And you don’t have to write anything.)
