    • Earn a stamp for your “past-port!” Join us for funicular fun as we visit the burros in Epic Events and learn about the hikes they used to take up to South Table Mountain. If visitors didn’t ride up the mountain on a burro’s back, they might climb into a funicular that would pull them up the mountain. We’ll try to make our own indoor funicular and imagine what it might be like to see historic Golden from the top of the mountain.
