Where photo taken: United Mine Workers of America Memorial, Ludlow, Colorado
Reason: Ultra Marathoner, Essie Garrett, ran/walked 213 miles from Denver to Ludlow to help raise awareness of the Ludlow Memorial and raise funds for Labor's Community Agency, the Community Services Arm of the Colorado AFL-CIO.
Best time to go: You may visit the memorial any time, but the annual memorial service in honor of the 18 men, women and children killed on April 20, 1914 is the best time to go, as you will hear speakers and learn more about the struggles the miners and their families endured. This year's guest speaker was former U.S. Senator, George McGovern (D-SD).
