Campfire Ghost Stories: Living History Tales of the West (Iron Thumb)

Jun 18, 2020

Free – $15

People from the past come to life in this hour-long presentation about the history and adventures of several past residents and visitors to the Estes Valley.  Join these characters as they recount tales of humor, exploration and danger; learn what life was like for them during their stay in and around Rocky Mountain National Park.  Time for campfire questions and roasting marshmallows will follow the presentation.

Iron Thumb is a fictitious character representation of a 19th century fur trapper of the West. Participants will hear tales of hunting beaver, view the historical clothing of the times, and see the tools that trappers used to get their jobs done.
