Tour Highlights History, Headwaters

More than 70 participants toured high altitude Colorado June 16-17 as they made their way along the headwaters of the South Platte and Arkansas River basins. Members of the Legislative Interim Water Committee joined a diverse group of participants including water professionals, federal employees, real estate agents and educators for the journey.

Tour highlights included an in-depth tour of South Park featuring its forest management issues, rich history and unique environments. Rafting through Brown's Canyon on the Arkansas River gave participants a chance to see the river up close and personal.

On the second day, tours of Fryingpan-Arkansas Project reservoirs illustrated the complexity and challenges of our water supply infrastructure, with a stop at the Golden Burro in Leadville to refuel. Revegetation efforts and a look at Eagle Park Reservoir at the Climax Mine concluded the second day.

Thank you to the tour sponsors, the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, Leadership Program of the Rockies participants, and all our tour speakers.
