Inspired by Australian Aboriginal songlines, or dream tracks, we will explore Buffalo Peaks Ranch by foot, listening to the languages of the other animals, noticing the rhythm of the topography, and the various traits of the landscape.

Can we become attuned to the shifting sounds and gestures surrounding us, and inform our own lives through the life of the land?

Through careful observations and further research utilizing the printed resources of the Rocky Mountain Land Library, we will create stories, songs, poetry and dance that describe and celebrate the land, landmarks, animals, insects, plant life, and other natural phenomena of the area.
