Canyons & Plains of Southeast Colorado held their Regional Meeting in Ordway, Colorado on Thursday, August 11. The program was a photo presentation presented by Richard and KiKi Medina. This was a very informative program highlighting the events that have been held in Crowley County this year. We now know that Lake Meredith is the only seaplane port in Colorado. Jerry Davis then gave us briefing on the up-coming Pedal the Plains to be held September 16 through 18, beginning in Ordway on the 16th, then to Fowler to spend the night, then on to La Junta for the evening and back to Ordway on the 18th.
