Here are some ideas for what to do this weekend:


Dance isn’t always about knowing what you’re doing; sometimes, it’s more about expressing yourself. Now’s your chance to do that with Dance Liberation Project’s Community Ecstatic Dance at 7:30 p.m. at the Launchpad in Carbondale. A fusion of live drums and sound with conscious cosmic high vibration beats will lay the foundation for this expression. You are invited to help weave the fabric together by tapping into your own inner rhythm, silence and creativity. This event is open to all — no dance experience is necessary. There is a $9 suggested donation. Contact Alejandra Rico at alejandraricobustillos@gmail.com for more information.


Spend your Saturday on top of Iron Mountain, and enjoy some great live music while you’re at it. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s Music on the Mountain summer concert series continues with the Goodman Band. Ride the tram or bus for free with the donation of a canned food item to the LIFT-UP food pantry. Free tram rides begin at 4 p.m., and the band plays from 6 to 10 p.m. Specializing in classic rock and Stevie Ray Vaughan covers, the three-piece Goodman Band plays music that ranges from early country, rock and blues to today’s tunes.


What’s a better way to spend a Sunday than on a free day hike with the Wilderness Workshop? You’ll meet at 7:30 a.m. and head into the East Willow drainage beyond Four Mile Park in the Thompson Divide. The East Willow contains some of the largest aspen groves in the United States and provides prime elk habitat. This mid-elevation moderate hike is 6 miles long. Four-wheel drive vehicles are necessary. No dogs are allowed. This adult program is appropriate for those 12 years and older who are strong hikers. Minors must be accompanied by a parent. Bring appropriate day hike equipment including water, snacks and lunch. Registration is required at http://www.wildernessworkshop.org or by calling 970-510-0697.
