As part of your registration, in order to participate in a Denver Field Ornithologists, Inc. (“DFO”) trip or other activities designated by the Board of Directors, each adult participant and the parent of a minor participant (those under 18 yrs. of age) are required to review and sign (either electronically or manually) a DFO Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks & Release and Indemnity Agreement (sometimes “Agreement”) Completing this document involves your acceptance of binding contract terms. This online registration system allows you to review and electronically sign the Agreement if you do not have one on file. If you would prefer to manually sign a printable version of the Agreement, you may access it here, and present it to the leader before trip start. If you choose this option, please contact your leader to assure you are signed up for the trip.
Please note: Each person, including each family member choosing to sign the Agreement electronically must login and have a separate account so that the agreement is tied to the individual. If you are having difficulty with multiple logins, please contact us for assistance. *Minors: If participant is a minor, the minor’s parent or legal guardian must print out, review and sign a paper copy of the Agreement and present it to the leader before the trip start. Any minor attending must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
Logged in users who have a signed Agreement on file will have the opportunity to print or save it at any time. Click on the link to the printable copy and use your browser functions to save or print.

I don’t believe DFO has visited Wyoming before, so lets do! We will head to Laramie, Wy then 35 miles to the Snowy Mountain Range. The Snowy Range is the jewel of southern Wyoming with crystal blue alpine lakes, alpine meadows and wildflowers with subalpine elevation of 9,000 to 10,000. Our end stop there will be pristine Lake Marie with mountain species.
Prepare for varying temps from prairie to 10,000 elevation and back. Nice time to be in the high mountains! Bring sufficient food and drink for this OVERNIGHT trip along with sun and bug protection, binoculars and scopes.
Restrooms will be available along the Snowy Mountain Range at outhouse types. From there they are limited to Walden’s lodging.
We will stay in Walden, CO overnight. You are responsible for your meals and lodgings arrangements. We will go to a mutually agreed upon restaurant for dinner. I will be booking at North Park Inn & Suites soon.
As always, should you have a scheduling conflict or not feeling well, please drop off this trip, as a courtesy to other members. We have left our cars overnight at CPW, 6060 Broadway with no issues. You are welcome to coordinate with a driver before CPW to leave your car elsewhere. As always, we need drivers! DFO has a gas reimbursement policy to the driver of .50 divided by the number of participants in a car, driver discretion.
