Bake Like a Pioneer
Our bodies constantly adjust and adapt for living in the high country. Baking above sea level is no different. In order to make something delicious up here you have to take the low air pressure into account and adjust recipes accordingly. Some of the first pioneers to bake here had to experiment with different formulas before getting recipes just right. Today we have the luxury of high altitude conversion charts but that doesn't mean baking is a breeze! Attempt one of the recipes below out of the "The Rocky Mountain Cookbook" that pioneer Harriet Backus aka the 'Tomboy Bride' used herself.

Learn How to Talk About Race via National Museum of African American History and Culture's
New Online Portal
The online portal provides digital tools, online exercises, video instructions, scholarly articles and more than 100 multi-media resources tailored for educators, parents and caregivers, and individuals committed to racial equality.
Research shows that many people feel they do not have the information needed to discuss race in a way that is candid, safe, and respectful of other viewpoints and experiences.
Talking About Race builds upon decades of work by the museum's educators. It is the result of extensive research, studies, consultations, and educational resources from these fields: history, education, psychology and human development. It includes published research from leading experts, activists, historians, and thought leaders on race, equity, and inclusion, including Brené Brown, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Robin DiAngelo, Julie Olsen Edwards, Jerry Kang, Ibram X Kendi, Enid Lee, Audre Lorde, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and Tim Wise.
