Take a trek, in search of arborglyphs

For many years, Peggy Bergon has collected photographs of arborglyphs — carvings on aspen trees done 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.

The walk will take place Saturday, Aug. 13, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 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. We will meet at the Buckles Lake Trailhead.

For more information, and to reserve a spot, call the Pagosa Ranger District at 264-2268. For more information about Peggy and arborplyphs, go to
