On the 6th Anniversary of Colorado's Great Front Range Flood, we commemorated the Lyons Memorial Labyrinth with a candle light full moon walk and with a Day of silence from dawn to dusk on September 13, 2019. This dedication and consecration took place on the fifth anniversary of its initial construction, which began one year after the flood in Lyons, Colorado (2013). (On September 13, 2019, moonrise, 7:26 pm; full moon, 10:35 p.m.)

If you are in Lyons, at 5th Avenue and Meily, Street, going east past the South St. Vrain Trail head marker, turn south (right). The Labyrinth is tucked among the trees on the left side of the trail on the the bank of St. Vrain Creek. Visitors to the Lyons Memorial Labyrinth will be pleased to find that the 3-path labyrinth has expanded to 7-paths over the summer of 2015. During the Spring of 2018, several paths have been expanded and there are now stone steps down to the river thanks to the River Restoration crew. The paths have been expanded during 2019.

Thanks to all those who joined us at the Lyons Memorial Labyrinth during the during 5th Great Front Range Flood Anniversary week of September 9-16, 2018 (Great Front Range Flood, Sept. 11-12, 2013).

Here is a link to a you tube video showing the labyrinth as it was in September 2016:

  1. Hi, love the manifesto, thanks for taking the time to send it to me. Loved my couple days in Lyons, will be back someday for another pilgrimage. Will be dropping in from time to time to enjoy your blog, and the art. Therapeutic would best describe the feelings invoked.

    Thanks,
    you inspire my inner gutterartist!

    1. Hi Ray, I just found this comment. Thanks for the feedback. If you're ever in Lyons on the third Saturday of the month, our Art-4-Art Artist Trading Card group meets from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Lyons Regional Library. By next year (2019), we may have a new building, 6 years after the flood.
