It’s been a memorable couple of weeks, as the Land Library hosted our first two workshops at Buffalo Peaks Ranch. We led off with a day-long poetry workshop taught by Jodie Hollander (author of The Humane Society). It was such a beautiful day for an outdoor class!
The ranch provides plenty of quiet places to sit, think, and imagine. The ranch, and the entire South Park region, provides everyone such a powerful learning landscape. Something that we definitely enjoyed this past weekend, as we followed Vince Matthews on an eye-opening geological field trip across South Park:
Before hitting the road, we all gathered on the front porch, as former Colorado State Geologist Vince Matthews prepared us for all that we would soon see in the field.
Little by little, the landscape of South Park became clearer, with layers of sheer wonder — like staring up at a star-filled sky.
Reading the Rock Record: our hardy group huddles up by the story-filled road cut atop Red Hill Pass.
Thanks to Jodie Hollander, Vince Matthews, and all attendees, the Land Library is fired up for even more classes and programs in 2016!
But for now, we have one more workshop scheduled for this season: The Illustrated Journal, taught by artist Sherrie York. Maybe we’ll see you in September?
