May 28th, 2017 - Hike to Waterfall in No Thoroughfare Canyon

This hike leads past a pool and then to a nice waterfall. With a round-trip distance of 4 miles, the hike is mostly easy with a couple of rocky/rougher spots that shouldn't give anyone a problem. The terrain is about like Echo Canyon but it's a little longer. "GJHikes" calls it "easy". Dogs are NOT allowed. The Monument requires a day pass or season/senior pass, so lets carpool as much as possible!

When: Sunday, May 28th at 9:00 am

Where: Devil's Kitchen Trailhead in Colorado National Monument (East Entrance to Colorado National Monument, first trailhead/parking lot on the left)

May 20th, 2017 - Astronomy & Sci-Fi Night

Humanists Doing Good will be teaming up again with the Western Colorado Astronomy Club for an evening of astronomy and science fiction atop the Colorado National Monument. We'll begin the evening by gathering at the Saddlehorn picnic area to listen to some science fiction from the 1950s before we head down to view galaxies, Mars and Jupiter through the astronomy club's giant telescopes. We'll be including a story from the legendary Arthur C. Clark with a distinctly humanist angle. There is likely to be some hot chocolate available as well. We've had a blast doing this in this past.

This event is very dependent upon the weather and will take place outdoors. It may be subject to late cancellation. Consider bringing a blanket and layered clothing to adapt to whatever the weather brings. We'll be seated at concrete picnic tables.

When: Saturday, May 20th at 8:45 pm

Where: Saddlehorn Picnic Area on the Colorado National Monument near the Visitor Center
