Land’s End/Whitewater Basin: Ute Legends

June 22

| $90 to $100

Travel with Curator David Bailey up the magnificent Land’s End Road to Grand Mesa and learn about Ute legends and lifeways. We will stop at the Land’s End Observatory, six thousand feet above the Gunnison River Valley. Bailey will talk about the legends of Grand Mesa; we will view the legendary nesting sites of the mythical Thunderbirds and the dwelling place of the giant serpent Batiqtuba. We will also visit the Grand Mesa Visitor Center, stop at Island Lake and discuss Uto-Aztecan language and legends, and return to Grand Junction through historic Cedaredge and visit the Pioneer Town Museum.

Led by David Bailey
