Rocky's West Side Stories
June 28, 2017 –
Come and hear Dave Lively, a historian, present “Rocky’s West Side Stories” Wednesday, June 28 at 5:30pm. “Rocky’s West Side Stories” will take you on a speedy tour connecting the common threads of survival and success the past 11,000 years in a highly isolated mountain valley. Always transient, the ebb and flow of passing cultures has influenced life today in this unique alpine corner of our nation. Come and enjoy stories of human nature encountering Mother Nature in what is now the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. Dave Lively is a dynamic speaker who specializes in shining light on absent narratives. He creates programs about local history for groups large and small. His stories of remarkable characters from the past engage audiences and bring deeper understanding and appreciation for where we are today.
