   Description: 
      Abstract:
         This film documents student hiking trips conducted by the University of 
         Colorado at Boulder in the Rocky  Mountains, Colorado, USA during the summers 
         of 1938-1942. The hikes took place in various locations  west of Boulder, 
         including Rocky Mountain National Park, Indian Peaks Wilderness, and Roosevelt 
         National Forest. The film contains rare historical footage of the Rocky 
         Mountains, including Arapaho Glacier and  Fair Glacier. The film provides a 
         unique record of what those areas looked like at that time, and may  provide 
         visual information on the extent of the glaciers. The film was created by the 
         University of Colorado  Department of Mountain Recreation. The original film 
         consists of four reels, in 16mm Kodachrome format.  The film was restored and 
         digitized with support from the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center,  
         Boulder, and the NOAA Climate Database Modernization Program. Digitized copies 
         of the film are available  on DVD. For information on ordering a copy, please
