Friday, Feb. 23, 2016 -" Alley Cats Coffee House", 120 W Laurel, Fort Collins


Meet in the Dalzall Alley,(not a through street), Dalzall Alley intersects with Waffles Alley. The parking can be tricky in the alley. I suggest parking on W. Myrtle St. or S.Mason St. (although there is a two hour limit.) and then hoofing it into the alley. It's behind the Mayor of Old Town on S.Mason St. If the weather is bad we can have coffee in the Alley Cat, or even lunch. It's one of the few local eateries that's open 24 hours (good to know, eh?).


Friday, March 2, 2018 - Spring Canyon Community Park, Fort Collins, the north entrance.


Go to the north entrance which is on S. Overland Trail. Go west on Drake street all the way to the end, which is S.Overland Trail (Street). Turn South (left). Overland Trail dead ends at the park. Restrooms available.,-105.1289141,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x87694963f9c3d23f:0x7fac2f513eecac5!8m2!3d40.5399604!4d-105.125641

Friday, March 9, 2018 - Gateway Park, north of Fort Collins. 


Gateway Park  is located at 5216 Poudre Canyon Highway 14. Take Highway 287 north and then it turns west past Fort Collins which is combination Highways 287 and 14. Continue west through La Porte. You turn left to continue on highway 14 at Teds Place Conoco.Station. It's 5.2 miles to Gateway on the right side of the road. Parking fee is $6,(unless we have more than 15 people and then it's $8) We usually don't have more than 15 people. Restrooms available.,-105.2450327,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x87693a60a784dc71:0xef01c0a3f290e411!8m2!3d40.699642!4d-105.242844

Friday, March 16, 2018 - Environmental Learning Center, 2400 Environmental Dr., Fort Collins.


Environmental Dr. is a north turn off of Drake St.( before it becomes N/S running Zeigler St.) Continue on Environmental Dr.  until it crosses the water tributary, watch carefully for road signs because there is a sharp left turn just past the water tributary. (then the dirt road follows the tributary stream.) Continue straight to the parking lot on the right. Meet and spread out from there. There is about a 1/4 mile walk to the Poudre River. Restrooms at the parking lot. 

Nelia will be there to replace me as the contact person: Nelia Harper:,-105.0216686,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x876eb4bf2d163db5:0x8cc656e45dc09c4e!8m2!3d40.5553848!4d-105.0194799
