In the 1950s Jack Kerouac famously spent time in Denver while writing his novel, On the Road. His haunts included the Rossonian Hotel in Five Points, where he could listen to jazz, to the Colburn Hotel, where he and Neal Cassady visted the future Carolyn Cassady, to Vance Kirkland’s art school and studio where he could rub elbows with other artists, writers and musicians.

The photograph of Neal and Jack printed in the Story Trek brochure was reprinted with permission from Carolyn Cassady, who took the photo.
