Hike Through History: Mitchell Creek & Camp Hale, Sept. 8, 2019
Sunday, September 8, 2019, 9 am
We covered about 80 years of Eagle County history in our recent Camp Hale history hike with Walking Mountain Science Center. Hikers spent the morning up on Tennessee Pass, checking out the 1880s charcoal kilns used to create fuel for mine smelters.
Camp Hale historians Flint Whitlock and David Little shared stories of the 10th Mountain Division and their training site in Eagle County. They even regaled the group by singing a few bars of some World War II soldier songs. History is fun in Eagle County!
