History Colorado’s Ute Indian Museum will reopen in 2017. With expanded exhibits and one of the nation’s most complete collections of Ute artifacts, it will provide us with inspiration for a wider tour—searching out the ancient and ongoing story of the Utes. We’ll also see Fort Uncompahgre, once a hub for trade in the region, and the Shavano Valley petroglyphs, dating back more than three thousand years. Though many signs of the region’s earliest inhabitants are gone, experts in the history and culture of the Ute people will share their insight and appreciation for these true Colorado originals.
Includes three nights’ lodging, bus transportation, guides, entrance fees and four meals including a welcome dinner.
