Benninghoff bookshelfby Diane Brown Benninghoff ’68

Benninghoff has made nearly a dozen trips, including several organized for Colorado College alumni, down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Most of the 30 poems in this chapbook are the result of the 2008 CC Grand Canyon trip, with CC English Professor and poet Jane Hilberry. Says Hilberry, “In one poem, Diane describes the song of the canyon wren, who ‘proclaims that she understands this vast canyon.’ So does Diane. Her poems are such songs.”
