Colorado Springs’ AdAmAn Club is a 90-year-old tradition among El Paso County mountaineers who climb Pike’s Peak every year on Dec. 30 to be on top of the mountain when the new year begins. And this year, Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia will join the group, for its entire two-day trek.
Gov. John Hickenlooper’s office, in a press release about both the governor and lieutenant governor’s schedules, announced that Garcia will breakfast with the AdAmAn Club at 7 a.m. in Manitou Springs on Sunday, Dec. 30, before the mountaineers begin trudging up Pike’s. And he’ll celebrate the New Year with them at midnight on Dec. 31 with the climbers at the summit of the mountain.
