2008 Telluride Workshop on Organic Aerosols

Schedule for 2008 Telluride Workshop on Organic Aerosols

Sunday August 3

  • Informal meeting on Sun evening at Bubble Lounge, 200 W. Colorado Ave. From the TSRC website: "They have light meals, comfortable nooks to talk, no TVs and they can handle separate checks. They make excellent cocktails and have a nice selection of wine and beer. It is located just behind the Excelsior Restaurant, just north of Baked in Telluride, and is not expensive. The atmosphere is casual with a lot of style."

Other details

  • Recommended hike from Nana (for Wed): Mill Creek trail. It starts as part of the Jud Wiebe trail (the toughest part of the hike) and then levels off to a rather flat trail. People can walk part of the way side by side, part single file and then it ends with a road where larger groups could talk. It's about 5 miles and loops to the Shell Station (formally the Texaco) and then you all can walk back along the river trail to town. It makes for a great medium level hike.
