Sadly, our beloved hiking leader and friend Bob passed away on September 24th, 2015. He was hiking alone on Mt Sopris, and had a heart attack near the summit. He died doing what he loved. See Daily Camera article.
If you would like to share a memory of Bob or a poem, please do so here.
Hikes are ongoing. Sarah Ward has generously offered to step up to be our new hiking leader, since Adrianne is having health problems. If you'd like to contact Sarah, you may do so at
Please check the Hiking Schedule for details on any upcoming hikes.
Things to come:
- A couple people offered to look into the possibility of adding a plaque in Bob's memory to the meeting bench on the library lawn. If this is approved, look for a "Donations" link on this website to raise money for the plaque, and please do contribute. Any size donation will help.
FYI, this website will remain up at least until next summer, 2017, so please add memories - as many entries as you like - and look through the photos, too!
Bob Baumgartner, our hiking leader,
who took us to spectacular and wonderful places in the mountains (and, yes, who also brought us back again...).
