    About Your Guide

    Meet Summer Waters


    Summer Waters is an accomplished public speaker and Emmy-Award winning video producer. In 2011 she became a Certified Interpretive Guide. This sparked her enthusiasm for leading groups of people on walking tours to connect with nature and history. Since that time she has guided nature hikes and small plane flights in Colorado and Arizona, organized festivals, and worked with communities across the western United States on growth-related issues. Summer Waters has a long family history in Colorado and has lived in the Front Range off and on since 1996. Her interest in Beat Era poets stems from stories told by her mother who went to UC Berkeley in the 1960’s.  Summer grew up working in her dad's music store in Washington State, known to locals as The One Stop Bee Bop Shop.
