FEATURED PROGRAM

Meet the Authors: Sleeping on the Summits: From Colorado to the Cascades to Mt. Everest
Tuesday, June 23, 6:30-8 p.m.
City Park Recreation Center, 10455 Sheridan Blvd.
Mountain geographer Dr. Jon Kedrowski and Fox 31/Channel 2 meteorologist Chris Tomer joined forces in 2011 for a groundbreaking adventure. Kedrowski slept on the summit of all 55 Colorado 14ers from sunset to sunrise in 95 days. Tomer joined Kedrowski for many of the bivys and provided real-time weather analysis and forecasts throughout the project. Kedrowski and Tomer hiked during the stormiest part of each day in order to make the summits before sunset. From these experiences, they co-authored Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14er High Bivys. Kedrowski and Tomer will be selling and signing copies of their books. Call 303-658-2604 to register. All ages.
