Welcome to the Cottonwood Gulch Oral History Project!
Here you'll find stories from friends and alumni of the Gulch on a wide variety of topics, from physical changes at Base Camp, to tales of personal transformation, to comedic snapshots of life on the Trek. Most of these stories were recorded at the 85th Reunion and the 90th Reunion in the summers of 2011 and 2016... but that's just the beginning. If you have stories you'd like to record for posterity, we'd love to hear them! Contact the Albuquerque office to learn how you can share your stories.
