Take the last interpretive tour of fall

The Pagosa Ranger District of the San Juan National Forest provides free, entertaining, interpretive and informational programs for the public at various times and locations during the summer. We are winding down for fall, but still have one excellent opportunity for forest visitors.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, at 10 a.m., take a walk through aspen groves with Peggy Bergon. For many years, Peggy Bergon has collected photographs of arborglyphs: carvings on aspen created by Hispanic sheepherders dating from the late 1800s to the early 1950s. On this three-mile walk you will see many of their writings and artwork while learning about the early sheep industry. Wear walking shoes/boots, dress appropriately for the weather, and bring drinking water. Due to the nature of the walk, it is limited to 12 participants. For more information and to reserve a spot, call Pagosa Ranger District at 264-2268. For more information about Peggy and arborglyphs, go to
