When Dolph Kuss first arrived in Durango in 1953, he says he was "one of the few people other than cattle people who'd ever go into what is now the Weminuche Wilderness Area.

Thanks to Kuss and a band of followers, students at Fort Lewis College today don’t have to ask those kinds of questions. Join us for a look at the life and legacy of Dolph Kuss as FLC's Outdoor Pursuits celebrates it's 40th year of powering adventure!
