John Anderson, author and presenter, will lead this moderate hike/walk around beautiful Fox Run Regional Park, in Black Forest,  North Colorado Springs, to see many Ute Indian Prayer Trees.     This tour will follow a different trail thru Fox Run, to see trees not seen on the June 2018 Field Trip.  Transportation is on your own to the venue, in North Colorado Springs/Black Forest.  We will meet in the parking lot of Pavilion 4, Pine Meadows area.  .  Detailed driving directions will be provided before the field trip.  Visit the park website for   video, photos, and more info.   Suggest bringing a brown bag lunch to enjoy on your own after the tour. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.   A walking stick is helpful.   The overall trail is easy, but we will be going a short distance off-trail to get up close and personal with the trees.  http://adm.elpasoco.com/CommunityServices/ParkOperations/Pages/FoxRunRegionalPark.aspx
