The Latest News By and About the Burlington Chapter.

Colorado Rockies
In the summer of 1970 I was turning 14 and went on a family trip from our home in Omaha, Nebraska, to Wyoming and Colorado, including a stop in Estes Park, CO. I had lived in the Midwest all my life and, despite some tourist drives to Yellowstone and winter ski trips, none of us had ever really done any mountain hiking. 
Beaver Lodge, Milton Pond
Like most day-hikes, this one starts in a parking lot. Located on the winding Westford Road, just east of Milton, it’s easy to miss the small, brown “P” sign that marks the park entrance.
Chainsaw Training
