Campfire Ghost Stories: Iron Thumb

Jun 14, 2018

People from the past come to life in these presentations about the history and adventures of several past residents and visitors to the Estes Valley. Join these characters as they recount tales of humor, exploration and danger; learn what life was like for them during their stay in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. Enjoy time for campfire questions and roasting marshmallows after the program.


Iron Thumb is a fictitious character born out of the research and study of 19th century mountain men on the American frontier. His character will tell what it was like to live as a beaver trapper in the 1800s, including dangers, humorous adventures and everyday tasks for survival in this once-harsh land. Participants at this campfire program will learn about the clothing, tools, and lifestyle of these often-misunderstood characters in history.
