Please Plan to Attend: A Bolivia Travelogue
Presented by: Salida Mountaineer - Craig Nielson

This special event will be held on Wednesday, October 24th at 7:00pm
(Doors open at 6:30pm) at the SteamPlant Theater. Cost: $5 at the door. 

Craig will present a slide show and discussion about his climbing trip to Bolivia: High Altitude Mountaineering and Cultural Acclimatization. Craig's proceeds from the evening will be donated in support of the proposed, Mountain Heritage Park, a Chipeta Mountain Project initiative.
The Chipeta Mountain Project, its supporters and friends, held the Chipeta Rising Celebration in October of 2017, to honor the move of the name, “Chipeta Mountain” from its original, lower, non-visible elevation of 12,850’ to the prominent, unnamed point at 13, 472’, visible throughout the valley and to celebrate the history of the Indigenous people who lived in our valley. Stay tuned for more information about the Mountain Heritage Park initiative and its strategic and valuable contribution to our community.
Please help spread the word, share and bring a friend to this evening of mountain climbing and cultural adventures in Bolivia!
