‘You Can’t Get There From Here’ – Overcoming Obstacles to Travel on the Colorado Plateau

Topic: Former reporter with the Daily Sentinel and current historian Bob Silbernagel looks at what kept the Colorado Plateau isolated for so long, and the early efforts to navigate through here, from the first trails through the railroads and the early automobile travel.  Bob Silbernagel was the editorial page editor for The Daily Sentinel newspaper in Grand Junction for 19 years. He retired in 2014, but he continues to write a regional history column for the newspaper.  He is the author of the 2011 book, Troubled Trails: The Meeker Affair and the Expulsion of Utes from Colorado, and the upcoming Historic Adventures on the Colorado Plateau, which will be released in May 2018. 

Bio: When not writing, Bob enjoys horseback riding, bicycling and camping, primarily in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah.  He and his wife, Judy, live near Palisade, Colo.
