Bob Silbernagel – Historic Adventures on the Colorado Plateau @ Outwest Books
Feb 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Historic Adventures on the Colorado PlateauThe Colorado Plateau is home to nearly thirty national parks, monuments, and recreational areas. The unique geology, stunning rock formations, powerful rivers and numerous scenic canyons that compose such a striking region also made navigation difficult. Yet daring explorers braved the journey. Rock art and other artifacts are evidence of occupation thousands of years ago. Spanish explorers once trekked across this rugged terrain, seeking information on the native populace, religious converts, and trade routes. Supported by years of research, Bob Silbernagel traces the Colorado Plateau’s intrepid inhabitants throughout history.
