New Podcast: Lady Moon

One of my favorite trails in Northern Colorado is the Lady Moon and Molly Lake Trail just south of Red Feather Lakes in Roosevelt National Forest.

Naturally I just assumed that the name ‘Lady Moon’ is just a clever name and doesn’t have any real historical significance until a few days ago when I stumbled upon an article in the Coloradan written by Barbara Fleming about a stubborn Irish beauty named Lady Moon, who the Lady Moon trail is named after.

Lady Moon

 Here’s the story of one of her adventures.
