Local rancher and archaeologist Gary Ziegler kicks off the 2023 Adult Winter Reading Program on Wednesday, January 11th at 10 a.m. at the All Aboard Westcliffe Facility at 110 Rosita Ave., Westcliffe.  Gary’s local history presentation begins with the tectonic forces that shaped our valley, and continues with semi-migratory bands of Arapaho, Cheyenne and others.  He will cover Zebulon Pike’s travel up Grape Creek, the first settlers, mining history, and more.  Along the way he will share stories from his own adventures.
