Chapter Chair Report
I was very lucky to have spent a week this winter skiing at Telluride in Colorado. What a beautiful place! One day we took a break from skiing and hiked into Bear Creek Falls. It was a moderate 4.6-mile round trip hike with an elevation gain of 1,140 ft. The falls are at 9,940 ft. We walked along a creek for part of the way, through a snowy meadow, saw some dramatic cliffs and up to the falls, which were beautifully frozen!

All of that was very breathtaking, but what I remember most about the hike is the sign that was posted at the beginning of Bear Creek Preserve. It contained information similar to what is listed below. As a result Iím working harder on reducing my footprint on the environment.

Iíve been using reusable grocery bags for several years now and I recycle paper, plastic, glass, tin cans, etc. I also donate clothing I no longer wear and try to find ways to reuse many items. Iím trying real hard not to buy anything that comes in Styrofoam.

Please remember this list at home or outdoors and do your part to reduce the negative impact the each of us may have on the environment.
