Have an adventurous spirit? Do you enjoy hiking in breathtaking areas? Do you possess a general interest in History and Archaeology? If any or all of these things apply, then this is the project for you! For thousands of years, humans have traversed the Continental Divide by way of the Rollins Pass, which connects the portion's of Northern Colorado's Front Range to its high neighbors to the west. More recently (geographically speaking), locals witnessed railcars chup up, up, up, over, and through the domineering peaks along what is now considered "the highest standard gauge railroad built in the United States:" the 19th-century Moffat Road. Though much of the history behind Moffat Road is known, the railway itself has yet to be fully documented. The goal of this PIT project is to investigate the areas surrounding the railway and discover features that will fully illuminate and better preserve the route's historic legacy. This is an important project amid some of the grandest scenery in the country, so we hope you'll join us this summer!
