Lost Lodges of Rocky with Dave Lively
Library Hall at the Bud Werner Memorial Library
(1289 Lincoln Ave.)
Tales of the historic lodges of Rocky Mountain National Park, presented by Bud Werner Memorial Library
and Tread of Pioneers Museum.
Did you know there have been over 30 lodges in Rocky Mountain National Park? Why is lodging now limited to outside the Park’s boundaries? What happened to the camps and resorts that used to be in the National Park? Lost Lodges of Rocky explores the transitions in lodging for visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park. Engaging storyteller Dave Lively invites you to share the thought provoking search for balance between wilderness and hospitality unique to America’s first automobile-based National Park.
