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.

Hear thrilling tales of adventure from pioneers facing perilous encounters and daring escapes. Abner Sprague recounts the 1896 camping trip that left his party lost in a blizzard above timberline. The Earl of Dunraven comes face-to-face with a mountain lion. Joe Mills describes a midnight rescue on wind-whipped Longs Peak, and a snow-blinded Enos Mills makes a dangerous descent from the Continental Divide.
