Join CMC Press author Penelope Purdy on Tuesday, June 29, at 6:00 pm for a free online presentation from her new book, The Best Buena Vista and Salida Hikes. Hear about the best places for hiking in the Upper Arkansas River Valley, a paradise for people who love the outdoors. Penelope will show photos of some of the 25 trails included in her new book, which range from easy lake walks to 14er peak climbs, including tips on where to find wildflowers, catch fish, and do some birding. The mountains near Buena Vista and Salida are among the most popular hiking destinations in Colorado.

PENELOPE PURDY is an award-winning journalist who spent much of her career with The Denver Post, where she specialized in reporting about environmental issues including climate change, wildlife conservation, and national forests and parks. An avid outdoorswoman, Penelope has completed The Colorado Trail and climbed all the Fourteeners in the contiguous forty-eight states including Colorado, California, and Washington state. She has climbed in the Himalayas, Andes, Canadian Rockies, and Alaska, as well as in the Rockies from Idaho to New Mexico. She is also the author of Hiking Colorado’s Roadless Trails, published by Colorado Mountain Club Press.
