Colorado Mountain Club during 1914 annual outing
Photograph depicting men and women of the Colorado Mountain Club sitting and standing on a rocky terrain, possibly the summit of Lulu Mountain, in Rocky Mountain National Park. Several people hold cameras in their hands and a person on the far left is taking a photo of the group.This photo was probably shot by George Harvey, Jr. during the Colorado Mountain Club's annual outing in 1914. Harvey was heavily involved with the Colorado Mountain Club, which was formed in 1912 with twenty-five charter members. The group led organized hikes and climbs around Colorado, advocated for wilderness protection and preservation, and lobbied for the creation of Rocky Mountain National Park. George Harvey, Jr. served the Club in a number of capacities; he acted on the Board of Directors from 1913-1922, Vice President in 1920, President 1921-circa 1922, and on the Outing Committee from 1913-1915, 1917-1918, and 1920. Harvey's involvement with the Club post-1923 is unknown. Part of the George Harvey, Jr. photograph albums (Ph.00094).
