Meggan Gould and Kacie Smith show highlights from the Cottonwood Gulch archive as stories of the outdoors, discovery, comraderie and problem-solving. Runs through 7/2.

The Inpost Artspace is pleased to present a selection of historical photographs chronicling early days of Cottonwood Gulch, an expedition program that has run since 1926. The Cottonwood Gulch was founded by a teacher from Indiana, who led educational summer treks throughout the Southwest. Travelling in a caravan of Model T station wagons, they sought “the remote and generally unknown wilderness regions” to experience a simple life, if only for the summer. The Trek represents a unique experience of place and time—stepping into unfamiliar lands and cultures, being humbled by geologic time, passing down strict traditions of keeping camp. Deep in the Gulch archives are a trove of logbooks and photographs documenting these expeditions and the evolving cultural landscape the trekkers studied.
