The Navigation of the CO-X Then and Now, Denver
December 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join India Wood at the Rocky Mountain Map Society for a comparison of the goals, navigational methods, maps, and obstacles which shaped her own routes through Colorado and those of early explorers Zebulon Pike (1806), Stephen Long (1820), and John Fremont (1840s).
Wood, a Colorado local, chose her own route and hiked a 1,480-mile X across Colorado in two diagonals: from the southeast to northwest corners in 2020 and northeast to southwest corners in 2022. This was a “first ascent” of the CO-X. Her love of maps began as a freshman in the Dartmouth College map room and deepened as a young dinosaur hunter and later amateur astronomer. After decades in business including an MBA from MIT she is now a speaker, writer, and photographer.
